NAME

       pmdamounts - filesystem mounts performance metrics domain agent (PMDA)

SYNOPSIS

       $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/mounts/pmdamounts [-d domain] [-l logfile] [-U username]

DESCRIPTION

       pmdamounts is a simple Performance Metrics Domain Agent (PMDA) which monitors availability
       of a given set of filesystem mounts.

       The mounts PMDA exports metrics  that  reflect  whether  the  configured  filesystems  are
       mounted  ("up")  or  not.   The  list  of  mount  points  to  monitor is specified via the
       $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/mounts/mounts.conf file which simply  contains  one  line  for  each  mount
       point.

       A brief description of the pmdamounts command line options follows:

       -d   It is absolutely crucial that the performance metrics domain number specified here is
            unique and consistent.  That is, domain should be different for every PMDA on the one
            host, and the same domain number should be used for the same PMDA on all hosts.

       -l   Location  of the log file.  By default, a log file named mounts.log is written in the
            current directory of pmcd(1) when pmdamounts is started, i.e.  $PCP_LOG_DIR/pmcd.  If
            the  log file cannot be created or is not writable, output is written to the standard
            error instead.

       -U   User account under which to run the agent.  The default  is  the  unprivileged  "pcp"
            account  in  current  versions  of  PCP,  but in older versions the superuser account
            ("root") was used by default.

INSTALLATION

       If you want access to the names, help text and values for the mounts performance  metrics,
       do the following as root:

            # cd $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/mounts
            # ./Install

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

            # cd $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/mounts
            # ./Remove

       pmdamounts  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.

FILES

                 command line options used to launch pmdamounts
       $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/mounts/help

       $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/mounts/Install
                 installation script for the pmdamounts agent
       $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/mounts/Remove
                 undo installation script for the pmdamounts agent
       $PCP_LOG_DIR/pmcd/mounts.log
                 default log file for error messages and other information from pmdamounts

PCP ENVIRONMENT

       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).
