The "distnoted" command is related to a process called "distributed notifications" in macOS. Distributed notifications allow inter-process communication, meaning different processes can communicate and exchange information with each other.

The "distnoted" command in macOS starts the distributed notification server process. This process manages the distribution of notifications between different processes. When a process sends a notification, distnoted ensures that the notification is delivered to the appropriate receiver process.

By using distributed notifications, macOS applications can easily communicate with each other without the need for complex and direct inter-process communication methods. It is a way to loosely couple different processes and enable them to exchange information and coordinate their actions efficiently.

Overall, the "distnoted" command is responsible for executing the distributed notification server process in macOS, facilitating communication between different processes on the system.
