       gpm - GlancePlus -  system performance monitor for HP-UX


       [-nosave] [-rpt [rptname]] [-sharedclr] [-nice nicevalue] [-lock]
       [-disks <n>] [-kernel <path>] [-lfs <n>] [-nfs <n>] [-pids <n>]

       GlancePlus  is  a  powerful  and	 easy-to-use  online performance diag‐
       nostic  tool  for HP-UX systems.	 It  consists  of  two	components:  a
       Motif-based  program,  "gpm", and a character mode  program,  "glance".
       The  combination	 allows you to use the appropriate tool for your  job.
       With  gpm you get the power and	ease-of-use  a	Motif-based  tool  can
       bring.  With glance you can run on almost any terminal or  workstation,
       over  a	serial interface and relatively slow data communication links,
       and  with  lower resource requirements.	Either component provides  the
       same  rich   set	 of  performance  information available	 through  HP's
       Measurement Interface (MI).

       The gpm program provides both graphical and  textual   information  for
       system	administrators	and  others  who  need	help troubleshooting a
       performance problem.  Advanced alarm and advisor capabilities make   it
       an effective monitoring tool as well.

       -nosave	   This option overrides gpm's default of saving a user's con‐
		   figuration at the next exit.	 If you would like  to	ensure
		   that a particular user enters gpm in the same state at each
		   start up, include the  -nosave  option  in  a  gpm  startup

       -rpt rptname
		   This	 option	 allows	 you to specify one or more additional
		   report windows  to  be  displayed  when  you	 start	gpm.By
		   default,  GlancePlus displays the windows that were open at
		   the last gpm exit.  Following are the various report	 names
		   that may be used for rptname:

		   AlarmHistory		ApplicationCpuGraphs  ApplicationList
		   CpuByProcessor	CpuGraph	      CpuReport
		   DceGlobalActivity	DceProcessList	      DiskGraph
		   Disk Report		DiskQueueGraphs	      GlobalInfo
		   IoByDisk		IoByFileSystem	      IoByLogicalVolume
		   Main			MemoryGraph	      MemoryReport
		   MemoryUsageGraph	NetworkByInterface    NetworkByCardGraph
		   NetworkGraph		NfsByOperation	      NfsBySystem
		   NfsGlobalActivity	PrmCpuGraphs	      PrmGroupList
		   PrmMemGraphs		ProcessList	      ResourceHistory
		   SwapSpace		SymptomHistory	      SymptomStatus
		   SystemAttributes	SystemCalls	      SystemTablesGraph
		   SystemTablesReport	ThreadList	      TransactionTracking

       -sharedclr  This option causes gpm to use a shared color scheme.	 While
		   it disables the ability to configure colors within gpm,  it
		   allows  gpm's  colors  to  be  configured  along with other
		   applications from a central point and leaves private	 color
		   cells  available  to other applications.  Even without this
		   option, gpm will use a shared color scheme if it  fails  to
		   obtain private color cells.

       -nice nicevalue
		   This	 option	 causes you to set the nice priority value for
		   the gpm process. The default nice value is  -10  (see  man-
		   page nice(1)).

       -lock	   This	 option causes gpm to lock both its text and data seg‐
		   ments into memory. Note that response time may be  enhanced
		   with	 this  option,	but there is also the possibility that
		   you will receive the error "Unable to allocate  memory/swap
		   space".  If	this  happens, you must run GlancePlus without
		   using this option.

       -disks <n>
       -kernel <path>
       -lfs <n>
       -nfs <n>
       -pids <n>
		   These command line options are  passed  directly  into  the
		   midaemon and they control the midaemon's startup parameters
		   (see midaemon(1)).  If the  midaemon	 is  already  running,
		   then GlancePlus ignores these options.

       Xoptions	   The	gpm  program  accepts  the standard X Toolkit options.
		   Examples of commonly used options are "-iconic"  (start  up
		   iconified),	"-bg  color" (use specified background color),
		   and "-display xdisplay" (display on	specified  X  server).
		   Note	 that  "-fg  color"  is not accepted, since the window
		   foreground color is computed by  gpm	 from  the  background
		   color.   Also  note	that since help text defaults to black
		   via a resource set in /var/opt/perf/Gpm, a dark  background
		   should  not	be  used unless the help text resource is also
		   set to a light color so it will be readable.

       To run gpm on a display named "wkstationa", enter:

	      gpm -display wkstationa:0.0

       To run gpm so that it does not automatically save configuration changes
       on exit, enter:

	      gpm -nosave

       To  require  shared  color usage and add the DiskReport window to those
       displayed by gpm at startup, enter:

	      gpm -sharedclr -rpt DiskReport

       gpm was developed by Hewlett-Packard.
