       pmdasystemtap - Systemtap performance metrics domain agent (PMDA)

       pmdasystemtap is a Performance Metrics Domain Agent (PMDA) which exports metric values
       from the Linux Systemtap dynamic tracing toolkit.

       This implementation uses the stap(1) tool, which is a front-end to the Systemtap toolkit.

       In order to access performance data exported by Systemtap from with PCP, it is necessary
       to perform two configuration steps:

       1.  Configure Systemtap probes, and verify them with stap(1).  These should be produced in
	   a format that is easily parsed, and then stored in the
	   $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/systemtap/probes.stp file.

       2.  Configure pmdasystemtap to extract the values from the text produced by stap.  Two
	   example probes are implemented in the default systemtap PMDA script - readdir and sync
	   traces (see $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/systemtap/pmdasystemtap.pl for details).

	       # cd $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/systemtap
	       # [ edit probes.stp, test /usr/bin/stap probes.stp ]
	       # [ edit pmdasystemtap.pl ]

       Once this is setup, you can access the names and values for the systemtap performance
       metrics by doing the following as root:

	       # cd $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/systemtap
	       # ./Install

       If you want to undo the installation, do the following as root:

	       # cd $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/systemtap
	       # ./Remove

       pmdasystemtap 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.
