NAME

       pmdasamba - Samba performance metrics domain agent (PMDA)

DESCRIPTION

       pmdasamba is a Performance Metrics Domain Agent (PMDA) which exports metric values from
       Samba, a Windows SMB/CIFS server for UNIX.

       In order for values to be made available by this PMDA, Samba must have been built with
       profiling support (WITH_PROFILE in "smbd -b" output).  This PMDA dynamically enumerates
       much of its metric hierarchy, based on the contents of "smbstatus --profile".

       When the agent is installed (see below), the Install script will attempt to enable Samba
       statistics gathering, using "smbcontrol --profile".

INSTALLATION

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

               # cd $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/samba
               # ./Install

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

               # cd $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/samba
               # ./Remove

       pmdasamba 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.
