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
gatherd.conf - SBLIM metric repository daemon configuration file DESCRIPTION
The file gatherd.conf is read by gatherd(8) at startup. Each line consists of a configuration option value pair delimited by an '=' character. A '#' (number sign) indicates the beginning of a comment. OPTIONS
RepositoryHost=addr The ip address of the remote repository daemon to which metric values will be sent. Default is localhost. RepositoryPort=port TCP port of remote repository daemon. Default is 6363. TraceLevel=level Trace level for the gatherd process. Default is 0. TraceFile=file Name of file to write tracing information. Default is stderr. TraceComponents=comps[:comps...] Gatherer components to be traced seperated by a colon (:). Valid components are: comm, util, gather, rrepos. Default is none. PluginDirectory=dir Directory where metric collection plugins are located. Default is /usr/lib/gather/mplug (/usr/lib64/gather/mplug). AutoLoad=plugin[:plugin...] Plugins to automatically load, initalize and start sampling. Valid values are: * or colon-seperated list. Default is none. SampleInterval=secs If specified this interval will override the plugin defined individual sampling intervals. Unit is in seconds. WARNING: This config option should only be used for debugging purposes. It overrides the per metric defined sample interval of all plugins, and really short intervals can introduce skew in the data due to seconds not being a high enough sample resolution. Synchronization=0|1 Specifies whether the metric plugins are invoked in a time-synchronized manner. Synchronized metrics with the same sample interval will be scheduled together. Possible values are: 1 synchronized relative to Jan, 1st, 1970, 00:00 0 unsynchronized, will be scheduled asap Default is 1. BUGS
