       pmdads389log reads configuration file

           · $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/ds389log/ds389log.conf

           · non-root user having read access to the access log file

       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/ds389log

       pmdads389log is launched by pmcd(1) and should never be executed
