       chkhelp - check performance metrics help text files

       $PCP_BINADM_DIR/chkhelp	[-eHiOp]  [-n  pmnsfile] [-v version] helpfile
       [metricname ...]

       chkhelp checks the consistency of Performance Co-Pilot help text	 files
       generated  by  newhelp(1)  and used by Performance Metric Domain Agents
       (PMDAs).	 The checking involves scanning the files, and optionally dis‐
       playing selected entries.

       The  files helpfile.dir and helpfile.pag are created by newhelp(1), and
       are assumed to already exist.

       Without any options or metricname arguments, chkhelp silently  verifies
       the structural integrity of the help files.

       If  any	metricname  arguments are specified, then the help entries for
       only the corresponding metrics will be processed.

       If no metricname arguments are specified, then  at  least  one  of  the
       options	-i  or -p must be given.  The -i option causes entries for all
       instance domains to be processed (ignoring entries for performance met‐
       rics).	The  -p	 option causes entries for all metrics to be displayed
       (ignoring entries for instance domains).

       When metric entries are to be  processed	 (via  either  the  metricname
       arguments  or  the  -p  option or the -i option), the -O and -H options
       request the display of the one-line and verbose help text respectively.
       The default is -O.

       Although	 historically there have been multiple help text file formats,
       the only format currently supported using the -v option is  version  2,
       and this is the default if no -v flag is provided.

       Normally	 chkhelp operates on the default Performance Metrics Namespace
       (PMNS), however if the -n option is specified an alternative  namespace
       is loaded from the file pmnsfile.

       The  -e	option	provides an existence check where all of the specified
       metrics from the PMNS (note, not from helpfile) are scanned,  and  only
       the  names  of  the metrics for which no help text exists are reported.
       The -e option is mutually exclusive with the -i and/or -p options.

       Environment variables with the prefix PCP_ are used to parameterize the
       file  and  directory names used by PCP.	On each installation, the file
       /etc/pcp.conf contains the  local  values  for  these  variables.   The
       $PCP_CONF  variable may be used to specify an alternative configuration
       file, as described in pcp.conf(5).

       newhelp(1),    PMAPI(3),	    pmLookupInDomText(3),     pmLookupText(3),
       pcp.conf(5) and pcp.env(5).

       There are all sorts of reasons a help database may be inconsistent, the
       most likely is that a performance metric in the database is not defined
       in the loaded PMNS.
