If you want access to the names and values for the rsyslog
performance metrics, do the following as root:
# cd $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/rsyslog# ./Install
To uninstall, do the following as root:
# cd $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/rsyslog# ./Removepmdarsyslog 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.
In order to use this agent, rsyslog stats gathering must be enabled.
This is done by adding the lines:
$ModLoad impstats$PStatsInterval 5 # log every 5 secondssyslog.info |/var/log/pcp/rsyslog/stats
to your rsyslog.conf(5) configuration file after installing the PMDA.
Take care to ensure the syslog.info messages do not get logged in any
other file, as this could unexpectedly fill your filesystem. Syntax
useful for this is syslog.!=info for explicitly excluding these.
named pipe containing statistics exported from rsyslog, usually
created by the PMDA Install script.
optional configuration file for pmdarsyslog$PCP_PMDAS_DIR/rsyslog/Install
installation script for the pmdarsyslog agent
undo installation script for the pmdarsyslog agent
default log file for error messages from pmdarsyslog
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).
