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 pcp.conf(5).
