SYNOPSIS
      rpc.rstatd

DESCRIPTION
      rpc.rstatd is a server which returns performance statistics obtained from
      the kernel.  These statistics are usually read using the rup(1) command.
      They are also used by the rpc.lockd(8) server during crash recovery.  The
      rpc.rstatd daemon is normally invoked by inetd(8).

      rpc.rstatd uses an RPC protocol defined in /usr/include/rpcsvc/rstat.x.
