lcfd.exe is the Tivoli Framework Agent, originally named the "lightweight client framework". lcfd typically runs as root/Administrator as the subprocesses that Tivoli spawns may require priviledged access to files or operating system structures. Driven by the top level Tivoli daemon called the oserv, the lcfd may also automaticlly download additional or updated code from mid-tier components called gateways. The lcfd typically listens on port 9494.
