Running on PMWEBD

pmwebd is a network daemon that binds a subset of the Performance Co-Pilot (PCP) client API (pmapi) to RESTful web applications using the HTTP protocol.

In addition to the API binding, pmwebd may be optionally configured as a simple HTTP file server, in order to server Vector itself to a web browser.

First you must download the distribution tarball and uncompress it:

$ wget
$ tar xvzf vector.tar.gz

Choose an unused port number on your system, such as 8080, then:

$ /usr/libexec/pcp/bin/pmwebd -R vector -p 8080

That’s it! Just open your browser and point to the web server on port 8080!
