NAME
pmdbg - translate Performance Co-Pilot debug control flags SYNOPSIS
pmdbg code ... pmdbg -l DESCRIPTION
The components of the Performance Co-Pilot (PCP) use a global vector of bit-fields to control diagnostic and debug output. pmdbg with a -l argument prints out the mnemonic and decimal values of all the bit-fields in the debug control vector. In the alternative usage, the code arguments are values for the debug vector, and the bit-fields that are enabled by each of these values is listed. Each code may be an integer, a hexadecimal value or a hexadecimal value prefixed by either ``0x'' or ``0X''. Most applications using the facilities of the PCP support a -DN command-line syntax to enable debug control. pmdbg is designed to help choose an appropriate value for N. PCP ENVIRONMENT
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 configura- tion file, as described in pcp.conf(5). SEE ALSO

NAME
pmsignal - send a signal to one or more processes SYNOPSIS
$PCP_BINADM_DIR/pmsignal [-a|-l] [-n] [-s signal] [PID ...|name ...] DESCRIPTION
pmsignal provides a cross-platform event signalling mechanism for use with tools from the Performance Co-Pilot toolkit. It can be used to send a named signal (only HUP, USR1, TERM, and KILL are accepted). to one or more processes. The processes are specified using PID or the binary name (with -a option). If a signal is not specified, then the TERM signal will be sent. On Linux and UNIX platforms, pmsignal is a simple wrapper around the kill(1) command. On Windows, the is no direct equivalent to this mechanism, and so an alternate mechanism has been implemented - this is only honoured by PCP tools, however, not all Windows utilities. PCP ENVIRONMENT
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 configura- tion file, as described in pcp.conf(5). SEE ALSO
