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/.
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.
