        Dpid2 is related to snmpd.  If you turn off SNMP (which, unless
        you re-set it's community name, is a security breach) you NEED
        to turn off dpid2 so that you won't fill up the /var filesystem
        with whining messages...

        You'll need to comment out the starts for snmpd and dpid2 in

1. dpid2 and logfiles

Does anyone know what the dpid2 daemon does?
Online docs at IBM are vague.

The problem that happened is that somehow logging
was started for this daemon and it
filled /var/tmp. There are references to dpid2
in /etc/snmpd.conf and /etc/snmpd.peers but
nothing that looks like it relates to logging.

I'd like to know how to turn logging off and if
this daemon is necessary. For now I'm just
killing it as stopsrc has no effect.
