NAME         top

       pmdanfsclient  -  NFS  client  statistics  performance metrics domain
       agent (PMDA)

DESCRIPTION         top

       pmdanfsclient is a Performance Metrics Domain Agent (PMDA) which
       exports metric values from the /proc/self/mountstats interface to
       provide information on NFS mounts.

INSTALLATION         top

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

           # cd $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/nfsclient
           # ./Install

       To uninstall, the following must be done as root:

           # cd $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/nfsclient
           # ./Remove

       pmdanfsclient 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).
