PMDAXFS(1)									       PMDAXFS(1)

NAME
       pmdaxfs - XFS filesystem performance metrics domain agent (PMDA)

SYNOPSIS
       $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/xfs/pmdaxfs [-d domain] [-l logfile]

DESCRIPTION
       pmdaxfs	is  a  Performance Metrics Domain Agent (PMDA) which extracts performance metrics
       describing the state of the XFS filesystem from the Linux kernel.

       The xfs PMDA exports metrics that measure information about  metadata  buffer  usage,  the
       journal,  btree	operations,  inode  operations, extended attributes, directories, quotas,
       read and write operation counts and of course throughput.

       The PMDA provides a facility to reset the values of all counters to zero using  pmstore(1)
       with the xfs.control.reset metric.

       A brief description of the pmdaxfs 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 xfs.log is written in the
	    current directory of pmcd(1) when pmdaxfs 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.

INSTALLATION
       The xfs PMDA is installed and available by default on Linux.  If  you  want  to	undo  the
       installation, do the following as root:

	    # cd $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/xfs
	    # ./Remove

       If you want to establish access to the names, help text and values for the XFS performance
       metrics once more, after removal, do the following as root:

	    # cd $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/xfs
	    # ./Install

       pmdaxfs 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

		 command line options used to launch pmdaxfs
       $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/xfs/help
		 default help text file for the xfs metrics
       $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/xfs/Install
		 installation script for the pmdaxfs agent
       $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/xfs/Remove
		 undo installation script for the pmdaxfs agent
       $PCP_LOG_DIR/pmcd/xfs.log
		 default log file for error messages and other information from pmdaxfs

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).
