NAME
pmdarsyslog - rsyslog (reliable and extended syslog) PMDA
DESCRIPTION
pmdarsyslog is a Performance Metrics Domain Agent (PMDA) which exports metric values from the rsyslogd(8) server. Further details about rsyslog can be found at http://www.rsyslog.com/.
INSTALLATION
If you want access to the names and values for the rsyslog performance metrics, do the following as root: # cd $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/rsyslog # ./Install If you want to undo the installation, do the following as root: # cd $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/rsyslog # ./Remove pmdarsyslog 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. In order to use this agent, rsyslog stats gathering must be enabled. This is done by adding the lines: $ModLoad impstats $PStatsInterval 5 # log every 5 seconds syslog.info |/var/log/pcp/rsyslog/stats to your rsyslog.conf(5) configuration file after installing the PMDA. Take care to ensure the syslog.info messages do not get logged in any other file, as this could unexpectedly fill your filesystem. Syntax useful for this is syslog.!=info for explicitly excluding these.
FILES
