NAME

pmdapdns - PowerDNS performance metrics domain agent (PMDA)

DESCRIPTION

pmdapdns is a Performance Metrics Domain Agent ( PMDA ) which exports metric values from the PowerDNS authoritative daemon as well as the recursive resolver.

INSTALLATION

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

                      # cd $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/pdns
                      # ./Install
              
              

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

                      # cd $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/pdns
                      # ./Remove
              
              

pmdapdns 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.
