NAME

       pmconfig - Performance Co-Pilot configuration parameters

SYNOPSIS

       $PCP_BINADM_DIR/pmconfig [-a|-l] [-L] [-s] [name ...]

DESCRIPTION

       pmconfig  displays  the  values  for  some  or  all  configuration parameters of the local
       Performance Co-Pilot toolkit installation.

       The -L option may be used to change the default reporting mode so that the capabilities of
       the PCP library are reported, rather than the PCP environment.

       An  output  format  suitable  for  sourcing  in shell scripts can be obtained using the -s
       option, which ensures configuration information  is  quoted  and  preceded  by  an  export
       statement.   When  not  reporting  the  library  capabilities,  this  mode  will produce a
       statement that  does  not  override  an  existing  setting  in  the  environment  for  PCP
       configuration variables.

       In  the  default  operating  mode, pmconfig is often used in conjunction with the $PCP_DIR
       environment variable to setup scripts running under the Windows  operating  system,  where
       the filesystem hierarchy differs greatly to the of Linux/UNIX-based operating systems.

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).
