DESCRIPTION         top

       pmdads389 is a Performance Metrics Domain Agent (PMDA) which
       extracts live performance data from a running 389 Directory
       Server instance.

       See the Red Hat Directory Server Administration Guide for
       description for each metric.

INSTALLATION         top

       pmdads389 reads an optional configuration file

           • $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/ds389/ds389.conf

       This file can contain overridden values (Perl code) for the
       settings listed at the start of, namely:

           • LDAP server
           • bind DN
           • bind password
           • default search scope
           • default search base
           • default search filter
           • query interval
           • List of sources
           • List of attributes to display for each source

       Please use the provided ds389.conf.example as a starting point.
       Once this is setup, you can access the names and values for the
       389 DS performance metrics by doing the following as root:

           # cd $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/ds389
           # ./Install

       To uninstall, do the following as root:

           # cd $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/ds389
           # ./Remove

       pmdads389 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.

       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
