SGI is pleased to announce the new version of Performance Co-Pilot (PCP)
open source (version 2.7.4-1) is now available for download from :


This is a minor release containing bug fixes, code cleanups, new metrics
and improved platform support. Source for the (currently non-functional)
hotproc PMDA has also been included, for community input.  A list of
changes since the last release (which was version 2.7.1-1) is in
/usr/share/doc/packages/pcp-2.7.4/CHANGELOG after installation, or at

In addition a new version (1.5) of the QA suite for PCP may be found in
pcp-qa-1.5.tar.gz in the same directory. Note qa/555 may not work for
SuSE or others using syslog-ng

There are re-built RPMs for i586 (gcc 3.3.x / glibc 2.3.x), x86_64 and
ia64 in the above ftp directory. Other Linux platforms will need to build
binary RPMs from the SRPM, e.g. :

    # rpmbuild --rebuild pcp-2.7.4-1.src.rpm

or from the tarball, e.g. :

    # tar xvzf pcp-2.7.4-1.src.tar.gz
    # cd pcp-2.7.4/
    # ./Makepkgs

Non-linux platforms need to build the source and then manually install,
e.g. :

    # tar xvzf pcp-2.7.4-1.src.tar.gz
    # cd pcp-2.7.4
    # make
    # make install

About Performance Co-Pilot (PCP)

PCP is an extensible system monitoring package with a client/server
architecture. It provides a distributed unifying abstraction for all
interesting performance statistics in /proc and assorted applications
(e.g. Apache). The PCP library APIs are robust and well documented,
supporting rapid deployment of new and diverse sources of performance
data and the development of sophisticated performance monitoring tools.

the PCP mailing list via http://oss.sgi.com/projects/pcp/mail.html

SGI would like to thank those who contributed to this and earlier
releases. Special thanks to Nathan Scott and others at Aconex.
