NAME

pmdanamed - BIND (named) PMDA

DESCRIPTION

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/.

INSTALLATION

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.
