       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).
