pmdads389 — 389 Directory Server PMDA

Description

pmdads389 is a Performance Metrics Domain Agent (PMDA) which extracts live performance data from a running 389 Directory Server instance.

See the Red Hat Directory Server Administration Guide for description for each metric.

Installation

pmdads389 uses a configuration file

·
$PCP_PMDAS_DIR/ds389/ds389.conf

This file can contain overridden values (Perl code) for the settings listed at the start of pmdads389.pl, namely:

·
LDAP server
·
bind DN
·
bind password
·
search scope
·
search base
·
search filter
·
query interval

Once this is setup, you can access the names and values for the 389 DS performance metrics by doing the following as root:

# cd $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/ds389
# ./Install

To uninstall, do the following as root:

# cd $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/ds389
# ./Remove

pmdads389 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.

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).
