pmgrd - The Performance Manager metrics server daemon
The Performance Manager (PM) metrics server (pmgrd) is a UNIX daemon pro-
cess that provides general UNIX performance metrics on request.
The pmgrd metrics server supports the extensible SNMP agent mechanism
(eSNMP). The pmgrd metrics server is a subagent that runs by default when-
ever the SNMP agent is started.
The pmgrd metrics server also listens for SNMP requests on a private UDP
port. The private port accepts SNMPv1 requests, and supports the SNMPv2
GET-BULK request for efficient bulk data transfer (using noAuth/noPriv
security). The pmgr and getbulk programs require this capability.
The MIB (management information base) variables implemented by the pmgrd
metrics server are described at this location:
The getone, getmany, getbulk, and gettab UNIX commands issue SNMP requests.
You can use these commands to communicate directly with the pmgrd metrics
server if you set the environment variable PMGR_SNMP_PORT.
