I have no idea what com.apple.dmd does, and I don't know if anyone else does either. I can't find anything on Google about it. ~Apple things~, presumably.
The D forum comes up as a Google hit for Apple's DMD because Google is guessing that we're related to it. We aren't.
Update: From an oblique reference in the PDF of the slides for a 2017 WWDC talk, it seems the Apple dmd process is related to their device enrollment program? (Guessing device management ... daemon? driver? Compare mdmd for mobile device management.)
There seem to be some guides on Google to shut that off, but they all read like things that will ruin your system if you miss a step.
Thank you so much for responding.
Let me explain why I'm so concerned.
I DO BELIEVE that this dmd is being used to give a Remote Device
access to my iMac (I have no mobile phone paired with my computer,
yet everything RELATED TO an iphone keeps running in the background
along with dmd).
I also found these instructions on how to download & INSTALL DMD
onto Mac for the express purpose of using it to CONTROL DEVICE
MANAGEMENT. In many posts I'm finding online, it appears as though
"dmd" is an app that some Techies put on their macs, NOT indigenous
to Mac itself (**and of course I could be all wrong, but it bothers
me that when my iMac boots up it goes to a BLACK SCREEN for about
20 seconds before my landscape loads):
