pcp-verify(1) verify aspects of a PCP installation


pcp [pcp options] verify [-c/--containers] [-s/--secure] [-v/--verbose]


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.


Additional options are available for changing the verification performed by pcp-verify.

-c/--containers verifies the collector installation for monitoring containers.

-s/--secure verifies 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.


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