       mkaf - create a Performance Co-Pilot archive folio

       $PCP_BINADM_DIR/mkaf [findopts] filename ...

       A  collection  of  one  or more Performance Co-Pilot (see PCPIntro(1)) archive logs may be
       combined with mkaf to produce a PCP archive folio and the associated archive folio control
       file.   Some PCP tools use mkaf to create archive folios, e.g.  the ``record'' facility in
       the pmchart(1) and pmview(1) tools, to facilitate playback with pmafm(1).

       mkaf processes each filename argument, and if this is a component file from a PCP  archive
       that archive is added to the folio.

       If filename is a directory, then this is searched recursively using find(1).  Any filename
       argument beginning with a ``-'' is assumed to be a find(1) command line option (findopts);
       the default is -follow if no findopts are specified.

       The first named archive in the folio is assumed to be associated with the default host for
       any tool that tries to replay multiple archives from the folio.

       The folio control file is written to standard output, and has the following format.

       1. The first line contains the word PCPFolio.

       2. The second line contains the tag Version: followed by the format version  number  (cur-
	  rently 1).

       3. For subsequent lines, blank lines and lines beginning with ``#'' are ignored.

       4. The  line  beginning	with the tag Created: documents where and when the folio was cre-

       5. The line beginning with the tag Creator: identifies the tool which  created  the  folio
	  (and is assumed to know how to replay the archive folio).  If present, the second argu-
	  ment is the name of a configuration file that the creator tool could use to replay  the
	  archive  folio, e.g. with the replay command for pmafm(1).  In the case of mkaf (unlike
	  pmchart(1) or pmview(1)) there is no knowledge of the contents of the archives, so  the
	  ``creator''  cannot  replay  the  archive, however pmchart(1) is able to replay any ar-
	  chive, and so this tool is identified as the Creator: for  archive  folios  created  by

       6. This	is then followed by one or more lines beginning with the tag Archive: followed by
	  the hostname and base name of the archive.

       For example
	    $ mkaf mydir/gonzo
       might produce the following folio control file.

       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 config-
       uration file, as described in pcp.conf(5).
