PCP-SHPING(1)            General Commands Manual           PCP-SHPING(1)

NAME         top

       pcp-shping - report on shell service availability and response

SYNOPSIS         top

       pcp [pcp options] shping [-cl?]  tag ...

DESCRIPTION         top

       pcp-shping samples and reports on the shell-ping service metrics
       exported by the pmdashping(1) agent.

       The default report from pcp-shping shows two columns for each
       service tag, the first showing service status (zero indicating
       success) and the second service response time, for the last
       pmdashping command refresh cycle.

       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, see
       PCPIntro(1) for their descriptions.

OPTIONS         top

       The available command line options are:

       -c, --status
            Display a summary of the current shell-ping collector,
            including information about service refresh interval, the
            current command timeout setting, count of refreshes, and the
            full command line associated with each tag.

       -l, --tags
            Displays the valid tags.

       -?, --help
            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
