PMDASMART(1)             General Commands Manual            PMDASMART(1)

NAME         top

       pmdasmart - S.M.A.R.T Data PMDA

DESCRIPTION         top

       pmdasmart is a Performance Metrics Domain Agent (PMDA) which
       exports metric values for Device Mapper on the local system.

       This PMDA collects its data through the smartctl(8) utility and
       requires that the program is installed in order to function.

       Further details on smartctl and smartmontools can be found at
       https://smartmontools.org .

INSTALLATION         top

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

           # cd $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/smart
           # ./Install

       To uninstall, do the following as root:

           # cd $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/smart
           # ./Remove

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

PCP ENVIRONMENT         top

       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).
