NAME
gatherd - SBLIM metric collection daemon SYNOPSIS
gatherd [argument] DESCRIPTION
The gatherd program is a system daemon that collects performance metrics for various components via a set of metric plugins. Raw metric data is forwarded to a seperate repository daemon that is located either locally or remotely (see reposd(8)). The repository destination, location of plugin directory, and other controllable configuration options are described in the configuration file man page (see gatherd.conf(5)). The gatherd daemon can be controlled at runtime by way of the gatherctl(8) command. This provides the ability to load and unload metric plugins online without the need to restart gatherd. The primary goal of the the sblim-gather package is to implement the DMTF's Base Metric Model (DSP1053). While, gatherd, reposd(8), and their plugins can be used standalone, the greatest benefit comes from using their CIM provider layer in conjuction with a CIM Object Manager (see cimserver(1)). For more information about CIM and the Base Metric Model refer to the Distrubuted Management Task Force (DMTF) at http://www.dmtf.org. OPTIONS
argument gatherd daemonizes by default. Passing any value on the command line will cause it to run in the terminal. FILES
/etc/gatherd.conf This file contains the daemon configuration settings. See gatherd.conf(5) for more information. BUGS

NAME
reposdump - utility for dumping SBLIM Data Gatherer online metric repository SYNOPSIS
reposdump [age] [interval] [directory] DESCRIPTION
The reposdump program is used to dump the metrics from the reposd(8) daemons online repository. The metric data is exported into a flat text file. The file contains sections seperated by lines with the following format. ===metricdefs <pluginname>=== ===metricvals <pluginname>=== Each section contains a list of comma seperated records containing the defined metric or metric values. A sample perl script /usr/share/reposd2csv.pl is included which demonstrates converting the dump data into a comma seperated value list (CSV) suitable for import into a spreadsheet. OPTIONS
age Maximum sample age in seconds to be dumped. interval Sample interval granularity in seconds to be dumped. directory Directory in which to dump metric file. BUGS
