Data Collectors

Data Collectors

Data collection is provided by a series of programs in [PROTOPDIR]/dc, and the collection or not of data by the pt3agents is configured via the ptInitDC variable in [PROTOPDIR]/etc/pt3agent.[*].cfg.

For example, if you want the pt3agent to collect table statistics, add the Data Collector (DC) “TableActivity” to the ptInitDC variable in your pt3agent configuration file and restart the pt3agent by removing tmp/pt3agent.[*].flg file. The dbmonitor will restart the agent shortly.

The currently available data collectors are listed below. BOLD DCs are included by default in ptInitDC found in [PROTOPDIR]/etc/pt3agent.cfg.
