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
- installation script for the pmdasamba agent
- undo installation script for the pmdasamba agent
- default log file for error messages from pmdasamba
