This process monitor watches for the rpc.statd process to be running. The rpc.statd server implements the NSM (Network Status Monitor) RPC protocol.
A failure indicates that the rpc.statd service on the system is down.
Check the service on the system by running ps -ef | grep rpc.statd or by viewing the diagnostic in the Operations Manager Console. Start the process using the run level startup script "/etc/init.d/nfslock restart" or by clicking the recovery link in the Operations Manager Console.
For root cause analysis, first check the system logfile (/var/log/messages), and view any related entries at the time of failure.
