SGI is pleased to announce the new version of Performance Co-Pilot (PCP)
open source (version 2.3.1-4) is now available for download from


This release contains mostly bug fixes following several months
of testing the "dev" releases (most recent was version 2.3.0-17).
A list of changes since the last major open source release (which
was version 2.3.0-14) is in /usr/doc/pcp-2.3.1/CHANGELOG after
installation, or at http://oss.sgi.com/projects/pcp/latest.html

There are re-built RPMs for i386 and ia64 platforms in the above ftp
directory. Other platforms will need to build RPMs from either the SRPM
or from the tarball, e.g. :

    # tar xvzf pcp-2.3.1-4.src.tar.gz
    # cd pcp-2.3.1
    # ./Makepkgs

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 homepage is at http://oss.sgi.com/projects/pcp and you can join
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.
