reposdump - Man Page

utility for dumping SBLIM Data Gatherer online metric repository


reposdump [age] [interval] [directory]


The reposdump program is used to dump the metrics from the reposd(8) daemons online repository. The metric data is exported into a flat text file. The file contains sections seperated by lines with the following format.

===metricdefs <pluginname>===
===metricvals <pluginname>===

Each section contains a list of comma seperated records containing the defined metric or metric values. A sample perl script /usr/share/ is included which demonstrates converting the dump data into a comma seperated value list (CSV) suitable for import into a spreadsheet.



Maximum sample age in seconds to be dumped.


Sample interval granularity in seconds to be dumped.
