 The \fBfcoemon\fR command is a FCoE management tool provided by the Open\-FCoE package.
 \fBfcoemon\fR is the daemon of the \fBfcoe\fR system service.  When \fBfcoemon\fR starts, it establishes a socket
 connection with the \fBDCB\fR daemon. It then sends commands to, and receives responses
 and event from the \fBDCB\fR daemon. The \fBfcoemon\fR  will process the received responses
 and events and invoke the \fBfcoeplumb\fR script to create and destroy the FCoE interfaces.
