pmtime: time control server for Performance Co-Pilot
NAMEpmtime - time control server for Performance Co-Pilot
SYNOPSISpmtime [-p port]
DESCRIPTIONpmtime is a graphical user interface for performance monitoring applications using the PCP infrastructure and requiring interactive time control.
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:
- 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.
