pmafm - Performance Co-Pilot archive folio manager


pmafm folioname [command [arg ...]]


A collection of one or more Performance Co-Pilot (PCP) archive logs may be combined with a
control file to produce a PCP archive folio. Archive folios are created using either
mkaf(1) or the interactive ``record mode'' services of PCP clients like pmchart(1).

pmafm provides a number of services that may be used to process folios. In particular, it
provides support for execution of PCP tools using one or more of the component archive
logs within an archive folio.

The target folio is identified by the folio control file folioname. The syntax for a
folio control file is described in mkaf(1).

If present, the command and arguments following folioname are interpreted and executed as
a single command, otherwise commands are read from standard input.

The following commands are supported.

Subsequent commands apply to all archives in the folio.

archives N[,...]
Archives within a folio are numbered 1, 2, etc. Subsequent commands are restricted
to apply only to the designated archives.

archives name[,...]
Archives within a folio have unique names. Subsequent commands are restricted to
apply only to the designated archives.

check Validate the presence and format of each file in the folio and the component

A brief reminder of the command syntax. ? is a synonym for help.

Subsequent commands apply to all archives in the folio.

hosts hostname[,...]
Subsequent commands are restricted to apply only to those archives that match the
designated hostnames.

list [verbose]
Display the contents of the folio. By default the control header and the ordinal
number, hostname and archive base name for each archive in the folio. The verbose
option causes pmafm to dump the label record from each archive using pmdumplog -l.

The first named archive in the folio is assumed to be associated with the default
host for any tool that tries to replay multiple archives from the folio.

Exit pmafm.

Echo on standard output the sh(1) commands required to remove all of the physical
files associated with this archive folio.

repeat tool [arg ...]
Execute the known PCP tool once per selected archive. For example, the command
repeat pmval -t60 kernel.all.load
would run pmval(1) once per archive, with an appropriate -a argument.

Some archive folios are created by tools (e.g. pmchart(1)) that provide sufficient
information to allow all of the information in all of the archives of a folio to be

[run] tool [arg ...]
Execute the known PCP tool on the selected archives. Some PCP tools are able to
process multiple concurrent archives, and in this case the tool is run once with
the list of all selected archives passed via a -a argument. Otherwise, this
command is synonymous with repeat.

Display those archives that would be selected for processing with a repeat, replay
or run command.

The restrictions via any hosts and archives commands are conjuncted. These restrictions
serve to limit the specific archives processed in the subsequent repeat, replay, run and
selections commands. By default, all archives are selected.

Keywords in commands may be abbreviated provided no ambiguity is introduced, e.g. help,
hel and he are synonymous, but h is ambiguous.
