NAME

pmdasnmp - Gateway from SNMP to PCP (PMDA)

DESCRIPTION

pmdasnmp is a Performance Metrics Domain Agent ( PMDA ) which provides a generic gateway from PCP queries from a PCP client to SNMP queries to one or more SNMP agents.

INSTALLATION

If you want access to the SNMP gateway performance metrics, do the following as root:

                      # cd $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/snmp
                      # ./Install
              
              

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

                      # cd $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/snmp
                      # ./Remove
              
              

pmdasnmp 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.
