We have included a
distribution directory for the Performance Co-Pilot 1.0 Inst Images.
For more general information about the PCP, including pictures of some of the visual tools, click on the "Performance Co-Pilot 1.0" heading.
If you want to get going with this Try 'N Buy distribution, here is a brief set of instructions.
Note: IRIX 5.3 is required in order to run this software.
On the system to be monitored: 1. If (and only if) there is already a PCP installation, stop the coordinating daemon (pmcd) # /etc/init.d/pcp stop 2. Install the PCP server components For example: # inst -f /CDROM/dist/performance_co_pilot_1.0 Inst> inst patchSG0000198 Inst> inst pcp_share Inst> inst pcp_server Inst> go Inst> quitIf you are running in Multi-CD mode, you can access this directory at: /CDROM/Silicon_Graphics_Developer_Forum_95_The_CD_Volume_1/software/performance_co_pilot_1.0/dist.
3. Start pmcd (it will subsequently start by default each time the system is rebooted) # /etc/init.d/pcp start On the Monitoring System (your workstation) Note: The monitoring system may be the same as the system to be monitored, in which case the subsystem pcp_client may also be installed in step 2, and you may skip step 4 below. 4. Install the PCP client components For example: # inst -f /CDROM/Silicon_Graphics_Developer_Forum_95_The_CD_Volume_1/dist Inst> inst pcp_share Inst> inst pcp_client Inst> go Inst> quit 5. Add the following lines to /usr/netls/nodelock to give yourself a temporary NetLS licence. # Silicon Graphics PCP 1.0 A 1995/09/16 546fb4684914.02.c0.1a.3d.52.00.00.00 mmmuaqu6uu6ynajpaa After PCP client and server components have been installed, and assuming $HOSTNAME is the name of the system to be monitored, then the following commands may be run on the monitoring system to demonstrate the capabilities of the PCP. # name all of the supported performance metrics $ pminfo # 3-D visualization of per CPU processor utilization $ mpvis -h $HOSTNAME # 3-D visualization of disk activity $ dkvis -h $HOSTNAME # high-level IRIX kernel performance summary in ASCII $ pmkstat -h $HOSTNAME # strip chart monitor for arbitrary perfomrance metrics $ pmchart # system call rate per CPU, displayed in ASCII $ pmval -h $HOSTNAME irix.kernel.percpu.syscall # one-line help for some metrics $ pminfo -t -h $HOSTNAME irix.disk In addition to the manual pages and Insight book for PCP, we strongly recommend you take the Showcase hypertext tutorial for a spin. To do this, $ cd /usr/demos/Perf/CoPilot/Tutorial After checking out the README it's simply, $ showcase -v Tutorial.sc Send comments and questions to: firstname.lastname@example.org
