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
       /var/log/pcp/rsyslog/stats
	   named pipe containing statistics exported from rsyslog, usually created by the PMDA
	   Install script.

       $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/rsyslog/Install
	   installation script for the pmdarsyslog agent

       $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/rsyslog/Remove
	   undo installation script for the pmdarsyslog agent

       $PCP_LOG_DIR/pmcd/rsyslog.log
	   default log file for error messages from pmdarsyslog
