SYNOPSIS

       cs_error_t sam_start (void);

DESCRIPTION

       The  sam_start  function  is  used to start health checking of application.  After calling
       this function, the active process needs to send healthchecks within  the  registered  time
       interval  by  calling  sam_hc_send(3).   If  event  driven healthchecking is configured by
       calling sam_register(3), an  internal  thread  will  be  created  and  send  health  check
       confirmations four times per time_interval.

       Application  must  be  registered  by  calling sam_register(3) before this function can be
       called.

       An application can always stop health checking by calling the sam_stop(3) function.

       This call return CS_OK value if successful, otherwise and error is returned.
