PCP-VERIFY(1) General Commands Manual PCP-VERIFY(1)

pcp-verify - verify aspects of a PCP installation

pcp verify [-a archive] [-h host] [-csvV?]

pcp-verify inspects various aspects of a PCP collector installation and reports on whether it is configured correctly for certain modes of operation.

By default, pcp-verify checks that PMCD is running and no agents are in a failed state. These checks can be extended and refined using the command line options.

The available command line options are:

Use the archive for verification.
Verify the collector installation for monitoring containers.
Connect to the PMCD on host for verification.
Verify that the required components for encrypted communication are in place.
Increase the verbosity, and report on each check as it is made. In the absence of any issues found, pcp-verify operates silently.
Display version number and exit.
-?, --help
Display usage message and exit.

pcp-verify will exit with a non-zero status if it finds anything worth reporting, otherwise it is silent and returns zero.

Environment variables with the prefix PCP_ are used to parameterize the file and directory names used by PCP. On each installation, the file /etc/pcp.conf contains the local values for these variables. The $PCP_CONF variable may be used to specify an alternative configuration file, as described in pcp.conf(5).

For environment variables affecting PCP tools, see pmGetOptions(3).
