NAME

       pmerr - translate Performance Co-Pilot error codes into error messages

SYNOPSIS

       pmerr code ...
       pmerr -l

DESCRIPTION

       pmerr accepts standard Performance Co-Pilot (PCP) error codes via the code argument(s) and
       generates the corresponding error text.

       Each code may be an integer, a hexadecimal value or a hexadecimal value prefixed by either
       ``0x'' or ``0X''.

       Error  codes must be less than zero, so if code is a positive number, a warning message is
       produced, and the negated value is used.

       The alternative use of the -l option causes all known error codes to be listed, along with
       their symbolic names and error text.

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(4).
