NAME         top

       pcp-verify - verify aspects of a PCP installation

SYNOPSIS         top

       pcp [pcp options] verify [-c/--containers] [-s/--secure]

DESCRIPTION         top

       pcp-verify inspects various aspects of a PCP collector installation
       and reports on whether it is configured correctly for certain modes
       of operation.

       By default, pcp-verify checks that PMCD is running and no agents are
       in a failed state.  These checks can be extended and refined using
       the command line.

OPTIONS         top

       Additional options are available for changing the verification
       performed by pcp-verify.

       -c/--containers verifies the collector installation for monitoring

       -s/--secure verifies that the required components for encrypted
       communication are in place.

       -v/--verbose increase the verbosity, and report on each check as it
       is made.  In the absence of any issues found, pcp-verify operates

DIAGNOSTICS         top

       pcp-verify will exit with a non-zero status if it finds anything
       worth reporting, otherwise it is silent and returns zero.
