pcp-dmcache reports on the activity of any configured Device Mapper
Cache targets. The reported information includes device IOPs, cache
and metadata device utilization, as well as hit and miss rates and
ratios for both reads and writes for each cache device.
pcp-lvmcache (Logical Volume Manager cache) is an exact synonym for
pcp-dmcache (Device Mapper cache).
By default, pcp-dmcache reports on all available cache target devices
(one line each, per sample), but this can be restricted to specific
devices on the command line.
When invoked via the pcp(1) command, the -h/--host, -a/--archive,
-O/--origin, -s/--samples, -t/--interval, -Z/--timezone and several
other pcp options become indirectly available; refer to PCPIntro(1)
for a complete description of these options.
The additional command line options available for pcp-dmcache are:
displays total read and write operations instead of the
default cache hit ratio.
changes the frequency at which the column heading is
displayed. By default, a header is displayed after every
Display version number and exit.
Display usage message and exit.
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).
For environment variables affecting PCP tools, see pmGetOptions(3).
