The Service Management Facility (SMF) is the SmartOS way to start and stop services (web, database, email, and so on) and provides two distinct advantages:

  • It monitors services and restarts them automatically if they stop running.
  • It understands the dependencies between services. For example, SMF will not attempt to start your webserver if your network is down.
A great resource for SMF is Ben Rockwood's SMF CheatSheet.
