A Makepkgs-built pcp git build (few days old) does a
as a part of the pmdas/json/Install. In turn this opines:
Starting pmcd ...
/usr/share/pcp/lib/pmlogger: Warning: Performance Co-Pilot archive logger(s) not permanently enabled.
To enable pmlogger, run the following as root:
# /usr/bin/systemctl enable pmlogger.service
Starting pmlogger ...
and indeed a pmlogger process is started.
But there is no need for a pmlogger on this machine. Perhaps the admin prefers pmmgr. Perhaps there is no need for local logging at all. The pmda-install operation should at most suggest pmlogger, definitely not insist. If it wants to restart pmcd (due to pmda forced_restart=true), it should stick to restarting pmcd.
This is unanticipated fallout (regression) from BZ 1185755 & related bugs. Fix should be relatively straight forward.
