NAME         top

       pmdads389 - 389 Directory Server PMDA

DESCRIPTION         top

       pmdads389 is a Performance Metrics Domain Agent (PMDA) which extracts
       live performance data from a running 389 Directory Server instance.

       See the Red Hat Directory Server Administration Guide for description
       for each metric.

INSTALLATION         top

       pmdads389 reads an optional configuration file

           · $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/ds389/ds389.conf

       This file can contain overridden values (Perl code) for the settings
       listed at the start of, namely:

           · LDAP server
           · bind DN
           · bind password
           · search scope
           · search base
           · search filter
           · query interval

       Once this is setup, you can access the names and values for the 389
       DS performance metrics by doing the following as root:

           # cd $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/ds389
           # ./Install

       To uninstall, do the following as root:

           # cd $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/ds389
           # ./Remove

       pmdads389 is launched by pmcd(1) and should never be executed
       directly.  The Install and Remove scripts notify pmcd(1) when the
       agent is installed or removed.

       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).
