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

SEE ALSO
       kill(1), killall(1), pcp.conf(5) and pcp.env(5).
