This section describes how to use:
The sm_notify command to start notification adapters. This method is useful if you intend to run the adapter once for a short period of time. For example, if you need to run a Log File Notifier Adapter to log notifications for testing purposes, use the sm_notify command. “Using sm_notify to start notification adapters” on page 23 contains additional information.
Platform commands to stop notification adapters that were started with sm_notify. “Stopping a notification adapter” on page 25 contains additional information.
The sm_service utility to install notification adapters as services. This method is recommended if you intend to run the adapter for a long period of time and want it to start automatically when the system starts. For example, if a notification adapter is part of your deployment, manually install the adapter as a service. “Installing a notification adapter as a service” on page 25 contains additional information.
The sm_service utility to start and stop services. “Starting and stopping a service” on page 27 contains additional information.Note:
The installation process installs notification adapters but does not configure them to run as services. However, you can use the sm_service utility to install the notification adapters as services at any time.
