OpenvSwitch PMDA


pmdaopenvswitch is a Performance Metrics Domain Agent (PMDA) which exports metric values for each openvswitch virtual switch configured on the local system.


Install the openvswitch PMDA by using the Install script as root:

# cd $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/openvswitch
# ./Install

To uninstall, do the following as root:

# cd $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/openvswitch
# ./Remove

pmdaopenvswitch 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.

PCP Environment

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).
