Anyone know what this line in my secure log means:

secure:Jul 23 21:52:38 brahe xinetd[933]: START: sgi_fam pid=1721 from=

The pid changes with each entry.  They showed up today for the first time.
Is this someone pinging my machine or was I running something I didn't know
I was running?  What is "sgi_fam"?  It's not in /etc/services.

BTW, I'm running RH 7.2 (KRUD 2002-04-01) with updates.
