This process monitor watches for the port mapper process to be running. The portmap daemon converts RPC program numbers into Internet port numbers.
A failure indicates that the portmap service on the system is down
Check the service by running ps -ef | grep portmap or by viewing the diagnostic in the Operations Manager Console. Start it by running the command "service portmap start" 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.
