If you are serious, I would like to take you up on your offer of
providing the source to the DBMS agents and Java code.
I remember making this request some time ago, but it seemingly fell
through the cracks. If you have the cycles to push the code over to me,
I would be more than willing to drop it on sorceforge and help give it
the care and feeding it needs.
I have no resources to do the maintenance for PCP beyond the open
source parts and the proprietary pieces that sgi ships (we remain
active on both fronts).
I'd be willing to discuss making the Java code we have available to
anyone who's interested in using/developing this .. it would be GPL'd
and on an "as is" basis (it used to work, for some definition of "work",
but I have no idea if it still does) but I'm not going to put it up
on oss.sgi.com as I have no bandwidth or current interest in fielding
questions or bug reports.
If someone wants to set up a new project (like on sourceforge) based on
this and/or their code, I'm more than happy to advertise it and provide
links from oss.sgi.com.
I can (and am more than willing) to offer encouragement and endorsement
for parallel projects of this nature.
Note, the same offer applies for the DBMS PMDAs that were the subject
of discussions some time ago.

Hi Steve P. & Ken M.,
I think it would be helpful to have a Java JNI interface
to the PMAPI as part of the standard PCP distribution.
How do the two of you feel about that? Steve, would you
be willing to contribute your code? Ken, would your team
be willing to take on the extra maintenance burden?
