       afsmonitor - Provides instructions for the afsmonitor command


       The afsmonitor configuration file determines which machines the
       afsmonitor command probes for File Server or Cache Manager statistics
       and which statistics it gathers. Use the -config argument to the
       afsmonitor command to identify the configuration file to use.

       The instructions that can appear in the configuration file are as

       cm <host name>
           Names a client machine for which to display Cache Manager
           statistics. The order of "cm" lines in the file determines the
           order in which client machines appear from top to bottom on the
           "System Overview" and "Cache Managers" output screens.

       fs <host name>
           Names a file server machine for which to display File Server
           statistics. The order of "fs" lines in the file determines the
           order in which file server machines appear from top to bottom on
           the "System Overview" and "File Servers" output screens.

       thresh (fs | cm) <field> <thresh> [<cmd>] [<arg> ...]
           Assigns the threshold value thresh to the statistic field, for
           either a File Server statistic ("fs") or a Cache Manager statistic
           ("cm"). The optional cmd field names a binary or script to execute
           each time the value of the statistic changes from being below
           thresh to being at or above thresh. A change between two values
           that both exceed thresh does not retrigger the binary or script.
           The optional arg fields are additional values that the afsmonitor
           program passes as arguments to the cmd command. If any of them
           include one or more spaces, enclose the entire field in double

           The afsmonitor program passes the following parameters to the cmd:

               <hostname> (fs|cm) <field> <thresh> <actual> [<arg> ...]

           The parameters "fs", "cm", <field>, <thresh>, and <arg> correspond
           to the values with the same name on the thresh line. The <hostname>
           parameter identifies the file server or client machine where the
           statistic has crossed the threshold, and the <actual> parameter is
           the actual value of <field> that exceeds the threshold value.

           Use the "thresh" line to set either a global threshold, which
           applies to all file server machines listed on "fs" lines or client
           machines listed on "cm" lines in the configuration file, or a
           machine-specific threshold, which applies to only one file server
           or client machine.

           ·   To set a global threshold, place the thresh line before any of
               the "fs" or "cm" lines in the file.

           ·   To set a machine-specific threshold, place the thresh line
               below the corresponding "fs" or "cm" line, and above any other
               "fs" or "cm" lines. A machine-specific threshold value always
               overrides the corresponding global threshold, if set. Do not
               place a "thresh fs" line directly after a "cm" line or a
               "thresh cm" line directly after a "fs" line.

       show (fs | cm) field/group/section
           Specifies which individual statistic, group of statistics, or
           section of statistics to display on the "File Servers" screen
           ("fs") or "Cache Managers" screen ("cm") and the order in which to
           display them. The appendix of afsmonitor statistics in the IBM AFS
           Administration Guide specifies the group and section to which each
           statistic belongs. Include as many "show" lines as necessary to
           customize the screen display as desired, and place them anywhere in
           the file. The top-to-bottom order of the "show" lines in the
           configuration file determines the left-to-right order in which the
           statistics appear on the corresponding screen.

           If there are no "show" lines in the configuration file, then the
           screens display all statistics for both Cache Managers and File
           Servers. Similarly, if there are no "show fs" lines, the "File
           Servers" screen displays all file server statistics, and if there
           are no "show cm" lines, the "Cache Managers" screen displays all
           client statistics.

       # comments
           Precedes a line of text that the afsmonitor program ignores because
           of the initial number ("#") sign, which must appear in the very
           first column of the line.

       For a list of the values that can appear in the field/group/section
       field of a "show" instruction, see the afsmonitor statistics appendix
       to the IBM AFS Administration Guide.
