NAME
pmie2col - convert pmie output to multi-column format
SYNOPSIS
pmie2col [-d delimiter] [-p precision] [-w width]
DESCRIPTION
pmie2col is a simple tool that converts output from pmie(1) into regular column format. Each column is 7 characters wide (by default, may be changed with the -w option) with a single space between columns. That single space can be substituted with an alternate delimiter using the -d option (this is useful for importing the data into a spreadsheet, for example). The precision of the tabulated values from pmie can be specified with the -p option (default is 2 decimal places). This option can and will override any width setting in order to present the requested precision. The pmie(1) configuration must follow these rules: (1) Each pmie(1) expression is of the form ``NAME = expr;''. NAME will be used as the column heading, and must contain no white space, although special characters can be escaped by enclosing NAME in single quotes. (2) The ``expr'' must be a valid pmie(1) expression that produces a singular value. In addition, pmie(1) must be run with the -v command line option. It is also possible to use the -e command line to pmie(1) and output lines will be prefixed by a timestamp.
EXAMPLE
Given this pmie(1) configuration file (config): loadav = kernel.all.load #'1 minute'; '%usr' = kernel.all.cpu.user; '%sys' = kernel.all.cpu.sys; '%wio' = kernel.all.cpu.wait.total; '%idle' = kernel.all.cpu.idle; 'max-iops' = max_inst(disk.dev.total); Then this command pipeline: $ pmie -v -t 5 <config | pmie2col -w 8 Produces output like this: loadav %usr %sys %wio %idle max-iops 0.21 ? ? ? ? ? 0.36 0.49 0.03 0.18 0.29 25.40 0.49 0.41 0.10 0.36 0.13 51.00 0.69 0.49 0.10 0.05 0.37 43.20 0.71 0.39 0.08 0.04 0.49 14.00 0.83 0.63 0.15 0.00 0.21 32.30 1.09 0.60 0.02 0.10 0.27 47.00 0.92 0.01 0.00 0.00 0.99 2.40
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).
