PSConfig

Overview

PSConfig is a graphical tool that makes it easy to work with the XML configuration files that can be used with other PerfSuite tools and libraries.

PSConfig can be used on both UNIX (X-Window based) and Windows systems. On UNIX platforms, the command to invoke PSConfig is psconfig.

PSConfig is installed on NCSA Linux clusters in the directory:

/usr/apps/tools/perfsuite/bin

The current version of PSConfig supports creation, modification, and examination of configuration files that are used by the command-line tool psrun and software created using the library libpshwpc.

The following screen shot shows examples of two of the windows provided by PSConfig, displaying information about hardware performance events on a particular machine that are available for measurement as well as general information about the machine itself. Also shown are two "tear-off" menus that can be placed directly on your desktop while you are working in the PSConfig main windows.


Example PSConfig display, showing a hardware performance event selection list in the left window and machine information to the right.
More detailed information about one of the available performance events has been requested by the user and is displayed in the text box at the bottom of the main window.
