NAME
       pmtime - time control server for Performance Co-Pilot

SYNOPSIS
       pmtime [-p port]

DESCRIPTION
       pmtime is a graphical user interface for performance monitoring applications using the PCP
       infrastructure and requiring interactive time control.

       pmtime is not normally invoked directly by users.  Rather, it is more typical for it to be
       started by client applications (e.g.  pmchart(1) and pmval(1)).

       There  are two modes of interacting with a pmtime process - live host mode, and historical
       archive mode.  In archive mode the window presents time controls suitable for manipulating
       the  archive position, allowing full VCR control to move forwards and backwards in time at
       configurable rates and intervals.  In live mode the pmtime  window  contains  the  simpler
       time controls suitable for live monitoring.

       The arguments to pmtime are as follows:

       -p   port  is  the  port  number  which pmtime will use for communication with its clients
	    (monitoring applications).

       Note that the pmtime window is only made  visible  when	explicitly  requested.	 Multiple
       client  applications  can  be  connected to a single pmtime server - when the final client
       application exits, pmtime will also exit.

ENVIRONMENT
       When a port number is not explicitly requested on the command line via the -p option,  the
       environment  variable  PMTIME_PORT can be set to specify the port number from which avail-
       able-port probing will commence when pmtime is searching for a port number to use.

       The default starting port number is 43334.
