NAME
pmdalmsensors - Linux hardware monitoring performance metrics domain agent (PMDA) SYNOPSIS
$PCP_PMDAS_DIR/lmsensors/pmdalmsensors [-d domain] [-l logfile] [-U username] DESCRIPTION
pmdalmsensors is a Performance Metrics Domain Agent (PMDA) which extracts performance metrics describing the state of hardware using the lm-sensors on compatible motherboards. The lmsensors PMDA exports metrics that measure fan speeds, core temperatures and voltage levels. A brief description of the pmdalmsensors command line options follows: -d It is absolutely crucial that the performance metrics domain number specified here is unique and consistent. That is, domain should be different for every PMDA on the one host, and the same domain number should be used for the same PMDA on all hosts. -l Location of the log file. By default, a log file named lmsensors.log is written in the current directory of pmcd(1) when pmdalmsen- sors is started, i.e. $PCP_LOG_DIR/pmcd . If the log file cannot be created or is not writable, output is written to the standard error instead. -U User account under which to run the agent. The default is the unprivileged "pcp" account in current versions of PCP, but in older versions the superuser account ("root") was used by default. INSTALLATION
If you want access to the names, help text and values for the lmsensors performance metrics, do the following as root: # cd $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/lmsensors # ./Install If you want to undo the installation, do the following as root: # cd $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/lmsensors # ./Remove pmdalmsensors is launched by pmcd(1) and should never be executed directly. The Install and Remove scripts notify pmcd(1) when the agent is installed or removed. FILES
$PCP_PMCDCONF_PATH command line options used to launch pmdalmsensors $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/lmsensors/help default help text file for the lmsensors metrics $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/lmsensors/Install installation script for the pmdalmsensors agent $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/lmsensors/Remove undo installation script for the pmdalmsensors agent $PCP_LOG_DIR/pmcd/lmsensors.log default log file for error messages and other information from pmdalmsensors PCP ENVIRONMENT
Environment variables with the prefix PCP_ are used to parameterize the file and directory names used by PCP. On each installation, the file /etc/pcp.conf contains the local values for these variables. The $PCP_CONF variable may be used to specify an alternative configura- tion file, as described in pcp.conf(5). SEE ALSO

NAME
pmdarpm - RPM packages performance metrics domain agent (PMDA) SYNOPSIS
$PCP_PMDAS_DIR/rpm/pmdarpm [-C] [-d domain] [-l logfile] [-r path] [-U username] DESCRIPTION
pmdarpm is a Performance Metrics Domain Agent (PMDA) which extracts performance metrics reflecting the state of the RPM package database managed by rpm(1). The rpm PMDA exports metrics that describe each package installed on a system, as well as some cumulative totals. When the RPM database changes the PMDA automatically detects this and uses a background thread to asynchronously refresh its values. A brief description of the pmdarpm command line options follows: -C Verify the package iteration code by scanning the RPM database once, then exiting. Only useful for problem diagnosis and testing. -d It is absolutely crucial that the performance metrics domain number specified here is unique and consistent. That is, domain should be different for every PMDA on the one host, and the same domain number should be used for the same PMDA on all hosts. -l Location of the log file. By default, a log file named rpm.log is written in the current directory of pmcd(1) when pmdarpm is started, i.e. $PCP_LOG_DIR/pmcd. If the log file cannot be created or is not writable, output is written to the standard error instead. -r Specify an alternate path to the RPM database (default is /var/lib/rpm/Packages). -U User account under which to run the agent. The default is the unprivileged "pcp" account. INSTALLATION
If you want access to the names, help text and values for the rpm performance metrics, do the following as root: # cd $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/rpm # ./Install If you want to undo the installation, do the following as root: # cd $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/rpm # ./Remove pmdarpm is launched by pmcd(1) and should never be executed directly. The Install and Remove scripts notify pmcd(1) when the agent is installed or removed. FILES
