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

NAME         top

       pcp-verify - verify aspects of a PCP installation

SYNOPSIS         top

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

DESCRIPTION         top

       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.

OPTIONS         top

       The available command line options are:

       -a archive, --archive=archive
            Use the archive for verification.

       -c, --containers
            Verify the collector installation for monitoring containers.

       -h host, --host=host
            Connect to the PMCD on host for verification.

       -s, --secure
            Verify that the required components for encrypted
            communication are in place.

       -v, --verbose
            Increase the verbosity, and report on each check as it is
            made.  In the absence of any issues found, pcp-verify
            operates silently.

       -V, --version
            Display version number and exit.

       -?, --help
            Display usage message and exit.

DIAGNOSTICS         top

       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

       For environment variables affecting PCP tools, see
