pmsignal - send a signal to one or more processes
$PCP_BINADM_DIR/pmsignal [-a|-l] [-n] [-s signal] [PID ...|name ...]
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.
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).
kill(1), killall(1), pcp.conf(5) and pcp.env(5).
