NAME
       pmdavmware - VMware performance metrics domain agent (PMDA)

DESCRIPTION
       pmdavmware is a Performance Metrics Domain Agent (PMDA) which exports metric values from a
       (possibly remote) VMware virtualisation host.

       This implementation uses the VMare Perl API (refer to the online docs at
       http://www.vmware.com/support/developer/viperltoolkit).	VIPerl is a prerequisite for this
       PMDA, it needs to be installed and configured before attempting to use this agent.  It is
       highly recommended that you test your VIPerl installation using the demo programs that are
       shipped with VIPerl, before attempting to use this PMDA.

INSTALLATION
       In order to access performance data using the VIPerl API, it is necessary to be able to
       login to the metrics source.  Hence, a valid VMware server name, user name and pass word
       are needed by the PMDA.	These can be passed in on the command line (via the pmcd.conf
       file) or via a vmware.conf file in the PMDA directory.

	       # cd $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/vmware
	       # [ edit vmware.conf ]

       This file should contain three lines, such as:

	       $server = 'vm.server.net';
	       $username = 'XXXX';
	       $password  = 'YYYY';

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

	       # cd $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/vmware
	       # ./Install

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

	       # cd $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/vmware
	       # ./Remove

       pmdavmware 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_PMDAS_DIR/vmware/vmware.conf
	   configuration file for the pmdavmware agent
