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 met-
       rics 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   pmdalmsensors   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  met-
       rics, 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 config-
       uration file, as described in pcp.conf(5).
