The volume I/O daemon (
vxiod) provides extended I/O operations without blocking calling processes. Several
vxiod daemons are usually started at system boot time after initial installation, and they should be running at all times. The procedure below describes how to verify that the
vxiod daemons are running, and how to start them if necessary.
To verify that
vxiod daemons are running, enter the following command:
vxiod daemon is a kernel thread and is not visible using the
If, for example, 16
vxiod daemons are running, the following message displays:
16 volume I/O daemons running
where 16 is the number of
vxiod daemons currently running. If no
vxiod daemons are currently running, start some by entering this command:
vxiod set 16
where 16 is the desired number of
vxiod daemons. It is recommended that at least one
vxiod daemon should be run for each CPU in the system.
