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.
Install the CIFS PMDA by using the Install script as root:
# cd $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/cifs# ./Install
To uninstall, the following must be done as root:
# cd $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/cifs# ./Removepmdacifs 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.

undo installation script for the pmdacifs agent

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).
