  • RRD format data interoperation
  • Improved user interfaces (pmchart, possible web gui)
  • IPv6 support
  • Improvements to Python scripting for monitoring clients
  • Prototype instrumentation for systemd and GFS2 clusters

Benefit to Fedora

The increased security may enable installing/activating the daemon by default.

Only the pcp packages would be modified.

How To Test

PCP includes a quality assurance suite in the pcp-testsuite package. Instructions for configuring and running the tests are included in an accompanying README file.

Contingency Plan

In the event some of the improvements don't make it to upstream PCP in time, the then-newest version would be pulled into Fedora.

Documentation

All tools, daemons and library interfaces have accompanying man pages. The pcp-doc package also contains tutorials, howtos and other documentation.

Discussion is on-going with the original authors (SGI) about making available the two technical books they have published about PCP, under a community friendly license.
