       collectl2pcp - import collectl data to a PCP archive


       collectl2pcp [-F] [-v] [-?]  file [file ...]  archive


       collectl2pcp  reads raw collectl(1) data from each file and creates a new PCP archive with
       basename archive.  Each input file may be gzipped (with .gz suffix).  The PCP archive  and
       at least one input file are required arguments.

       The options to collectl2pcp are as follows.

       -F     Overwrite archive (and the index and meta files) if it already exists.

       -v     Report  progress  and  errors  verbosely.  This also reports a count of unsupported
              metric data in the collectl(1) input file(s), which is normally silently skipped.

       file [file ...]
              These are the collectl(1) input files.  If  more  than  one  is  given,  they  must
              contain  data  for  the same host and be given in time-stamp chronological order on
              the command line.  Note that when collectl(1) is run  as  a  service,  it  normally
              creates   files  with  date  based  names  that  will  sort  chronologically  (e.g.
              /var/log/collectl/*.gz will be sorted correctly).


       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).
