pmdapostfix — Postfix performance metrics domain agent (PMDA)


pmdapostfix is a Performance Metrics Domain Agent (PMDA) which exports mail queue sizes as reported by qshape(1), as well as aggregate statistics collected from mail.log.


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

     # cd $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/postfix
     # ./Install

To uninstall, do the following as root:

     # cd $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/postfix
     # ./Remove

pmdapostfix 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).
