NAME

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.
