Performance monitoring with Perfview is achieved by using a mix of MeasureWareAgent (MWA) and Perfview. The following daemons are run:


midaemon - measurement interface daemonPerfview
pvalarmd - MeasureWare alarm manager daemon
pvalarmd3 - PVAgent 3.0 alarm manager daemon
pvnotifyd3 - as above...
pv - perfview user interface


scopeux - MWA data collector
alarmgen - alarm generator
agdbserver - alarm database server
perflbd- location broker
ttd - transaction device daemon
rep_server - repository server

The daemons running can be checked with perfstat or, for just the measureware elements, mwa status

Perfview elements can be stopped and started using pvalarmd.start or pvalarmd.stop

The MeasureWare elements can be started and stopped using mwa start or mwa stop. Note: this doesn't stop ttd daemon. To stop this enter ttd -k .

Executing pv under CDE/VUE will start the Perfview GUI.

Intial setup

 1. Enter pv
 2. select datasources > manage > add, then enter the hostname
 3. click hostname , various information options are displayed
