collectl2pcp reads raw collectl(1) data from each file and creates a
new PCP archive with basename archive. Each input file may be
gzipped (with .gz suffix). The PCP archive and at least one input
file are required arguments.
The options to collectl2pcp are as follows.
-F Overwrite archive (and the index and meta files) if it already
-v Report progress and errors verbosely. This also reports a
count of unsupported metric data in the collectl(1) input
file(s), which is normally silently skipped.
file [file ...]
These are the collectl(1) input files. If more than one is
given, they must contain data for the same host and be given
in time-stamp chronological order on the command line. Note
that when collectl(1) is run as a service, it normally creates
files with date based names that will sort chronologically
(e.g. /var/log/collectl/*.gz will be sorted correctly).
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
configuration file, as described in pcp.conf(5).
