ndmp) handles NDMP protocol messages,
avrd, and robotic processes.
The BMR Override Table Admin Utility manages the custom override functions for Bare Metal Restore.
The NBACE process controls the logging level in the (ACE/TAO) CORBA components for any process that uses a CORBA interface. The default level is 0 (only important messages are logged). This logging is intended for Veritas engineering.
If Veritas Technical Support instructs you to increase the logging level, increase the level for originator ID 137 to 4 or higher.
A debug logging level greater than 0 generates large amounts of data.
Remote access interface for NetBackup clients.
The NetBackup Service Monitor monitors the NetBackup services that run on the local computer and tries to restart a service that unexpectedly terminates.
The NetBackup Vault Manager manages NetBackup Vault. nbvault must be running on the NetBackup Vault server
during all NetBackup Vault operations.
The Disk Service Manager (DSM) performs set and get operations on disk storage and disk storage units.

target mode driver for the host bus adapters. nbftsrvr is part of SAN client.
The Fibre Transport (FT) client process runs on the client and is part of SAN Client.
The FT Service Manager (FSM) is a component of the Enterprise Media Manager (EMM) and is part of SAN Client.
The Storage service manages the storage server and runs on the media server.
Exchange Firedrill Wizard for NetBackup clients.
The Resource Event Manager (REM) is a CORBA loadable service that runs inside nbemm. REM works with the Disk Polling Service to monitor free space and volume status, and to watch for disk-full conditions.
Disk polling service for NetBackup clients.
The Media Performance Monitor Service (MPMS) runs on every media server within RMMS and gathers CPU load and free memory information for the host.
Remote monitoring and Management Service (RMMS) is the conduit through which EMM discovers and configures disk storage on media servers.
