NAME         top

       pmdamic - MIC card PMDA

DESCRIPTION         top

       pmdamic is a Performance Metrics Domain Agent (PMDA) which exports
       metric values about Intel MIC cards using the libmicmgmt(7) python

       This provides information on core, memory and power utilization

INSTALLATION         top

       Install the MIC PMDA by using the Install script as root:

            # cd $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/mic
            # ./Install

       If you want to undo the installation, do the following as root:

            # cd $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/mic
            # ./Remove

       pmdamic 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.

       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).
