Robot version 9.32 is running okay. AIX OS 7.x. In /etc/inittab, we see-> nimbus:2:respawn:/usr/bin/startsrc -s nimbus
There are ~10K+ messages in /var/adm/messages being generated within 24 hours.
Mar 3 14:00:00 utaxd353 daemon:info src: The nimbus subsystem was requested to STARTED by user root
There are no nimbus related commands in /etc/rc.tcpip.
Release : 9.1.0
OS: AIX 7.1
Component : Robot
After reviewing the KB Article:
The nimbus process is writing a lot to the wtmp file residing in the /var file system in AIX
The customer decided to replace the entry in the inittab
"nimbus:2:respawn:/usr/bin/startsrc -s nimbus"
"nimbus:2:once:/usr/bin/startsrc -s nimbus > /dev/console 2>&1";
This starts the robot upon reboot but does not continually try to spawn the process/daemon.
This appears to be a better approach than using respawn.
