PMDACIFS(1)                General Commands Manual               PMDACIFS(1)

NAME         top

       pmdacifs - Common Internet Filesystem (CIFS) PMDA

DESCRIPTION         top

       pmdacifs is a Performance Metrics Domain Agent (PMDA) which exports
       metric values about mounted CIFS shares from the /proc/fs/cifs
       directory. This PMDA requires at least the CIFS kernel module to be
       loaded to return some metric values and at least one mounted CIFS
       share in order to provide data for all metrics.

       Further details on CIFS can be found at http://redhat.com

INSTALLATION         top

       Install the CIFS PMDA by using the Install script as root:

             # cd $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/cifs
             # ./Install

       To uninstall, do the following as root:

             # cd $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/cifs
             # ./Remove

       pmdacifs is launched by pmcd(1) and should never be executed
       directly.  The Install and Remove scripts notify pmcd when the agent
       is installed or removed.

PCP ENVIRONMENT         top

       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).
