PCP.ENV(5) File Formats Manual PCP.ENV(5)NAME
pcp.env - script to set Performance Co-Pilot run-time environment variables
The pcp.env script is sourced by assorted Performance Co-Pilot (PCP) scripts and utilities to define the PCP operating environment vari-
ables. The conjugate for executable programs using the PCP libraries is the __pmGetConfig(3) function.
Typical usage of pcp.env in a script is as follows :
# source the PCP environment variables
rest of script ...
The full syntax and semantics of the pcp.conf file and the __pmGetConfig function are described in their respective reference pages.
The PCP_CONF environment variable specifies an alternative path to the pcp.conf file.

PMSIGNAL(1) General Commands Manual PMSIGNAL(1)NAME
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 configura-
tion file, as described in pcp.conf(5).
SEE ALSO kill(1), killall(1), pcp.conf(5) and pcp.env(5).
