SYNOPSIS         top

DESCRIPTION         top

       pcp-ipcs provides information on the inter-process communication
       facilities for which the calling process has read access.

OPTIONS         top

       When invoked via the pcp(1) command, the -h/--host, -a/--archive,
       -O/--origin, -Z/--timezone and several other pcp options become
       indirectly available; refer to PCPIntro(1) for a complete description
       of these options.

       The additional command line options available for pcp-ipcs are:

       -V, --version
              Display version information and exit.

       -?, --help

       Environment variables with the prefix PCP_ are used to parameterize
       the file and directory names used by PCP.  On each installation, the
       file /etc/pcp.conf contains the local values for these variables.
       The $PCP_CONF variable may be used to specify an alternative
       configuration file, as described in pcp.conf(5).

       For environment variables affecting PCP tools, see pmGetOptions(3).
