pmdasamba — Samba performance metrics domain agent (PMDA)

Description

pmdasamba is a Performance Metrics Domain Agent (PMDA) which exports metric values from Samba, a Windows SMB/CIFS server for UNIX.

In order for values to be made available by this PMDA, Samba must have been built with profiling support (WITH_PROFILE in "smbd -b" output). This PMDA dynamically enumerates much of its metric hierarchy, based on the contents of "smbstatus --profile".

When the agent is installed (see below), the Install script will attempt to enable Samba statistics gathering, using "smbcontrol --profile".

Installation

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

# cd $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/samba
# ./Install

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

# cd $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/samba
# ./Remove

pmdasamba 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.
