NAMEpmdadbping - database response time and availability PMDA
DESCRIPTIONpmdadbping is a database response time measurement PMDA.
pmdadbping runs dbprobe(1), and exports the performance measurements it makes available as PCP metrics.
dbprobe(1) should be configured to use the type of DBI appropriate for the local database, which includes: RDBMS flavour, user/password, delay between "ping" requests, and the SQL statement to use.

- delay between probes
Once this is setup, you can access the names and values for the dbping performance metrics by doing the following as root:
