PMSIGNAL(1)				       General Commands Manual					  PMSIGNAL(1)

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 hon- oured 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 configuration file, as described in pcp.conf(5).
