pmdanamed — BIND (named) PMDA

Description

pmdanamed is a Performance Metrics Domain Agent (PMDA) which exports metric values from the BIND DNS server. Further details on BIND can be found at http://isc.org/.

Installation

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

        # cd $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/named
        # ./Install

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

        # cd $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/named
        # ./Remove

pmdanamed 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.
