Description Nathan Scott 2019-03-04 23:02:03 UTC
We're planning a rebase of the RHEL-8 package of PCP for 8.1.  This rebase contains many bug fixes as well as new features.  Backward compatibility is maintained (unchanged) for libraries, over-the-wire protocol and on-disk PCP archive format.

New features include addition of new metrics - Linux kernel entropy, pressure stall information, Nvidia GPU statistics - as well as updates to tools like pcp-dstat(1) and pcp-atop(1) to report these metrics.  The perfevent PMDA used extensively by partners (IBM, Fujitsu) is also updated to include several of their newly requested metrics.  A number of updates to the pmseries(1) and pmproxy(1) utility to provide a performant PCP / Grafana integration will also be included.
