    This is because they are probably failing with an error message. Check
    "cflowd.conf" and verify where they are sending their logs and to what
    facility. From there, set up syslog to properly collect the messages from
    cflowd and cflowdmux. Finally, run a "tail -f <filename>" while you attempt
    to start them up. You have likely forgotten to reconfigure /etc/system on
    solaris to add
    "set shmsys:shminfo_shmmax = 4194304". The default shared buffer size on
    Solaris is not large enough
    to handle what cflowd's requirements are.

    At least, that was my problem. I'm still stuck at compiling cflowd on
    Solaris 2.7 with an error message of:

    ... snip snip ...

    Good luck!

    Subject: Running cflowd and cflowdmux

    I've seen others ask this question, but have still not
    located an answer in the mail archive.

    I'm trying to run cflowd and cflowdmux on a Solaris
    2.6 platform.

    When I attempt to run either cflowd or cflowdmux, I do
    not see them with "ps -ef" and can not locate an error

    When I attempt to simply run cfdcollect, I see it
    easily with a "ps -ef" command.

    Is there a solution to this problem?
