pcp-verify - verify aspects of a PCP installation
pcp verify [-a archive] [-h host] [-csvV?]
pcp-verify inspects various aspects of a PCP collector installation and reports on whether it is configured correctly for certain modes of operation. By default, pcp-verify checks that PMCD is running and no agents are in a failed state. These checks can be extended and refined using the command line options.
The available command line options are: -a archive, --archive=archive Use the archive for verification. -c, --containers Verify the collector installation for monitoring containers. -h host, --host=host Connect to the PMCD on host for verification. -s, --secure Verify that the required components for encrypted communication are in place. -v, --verbose Increase the verbosity, and report on each check as it is made. In the absence of any issues found, pcp-verify operates silently. -V, --version Display version number and exit. -?, --help Display usage message and exit.
pcp-verify will exit with a non-zero status if it finds anything worth reporting, otherwise it is silent and returns zero.
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). For environment variables affecting PCP tools, see pmGetOptions(3).
