NAME         top

       pmie_dump_stats - dump the contents of pmie stats files

SYNOPSIS         top

       $PCP_BINADM_DIR/pmie_dump_stats file ...

DESCRIPTION         top

       Each pmie(1) process mantains a file of state and statistics in
       binary files in the $PCP_TMP_DIR/pmie directory, named with the
       process' PID.

       These files are used by the pmcd PMDA to instantiate the
       pmcd.pmie performance metrics.

       pmie_dump_stats is a stand alone utility that dumps the contents
       of these files in a terse, but script-friendly format.  It is
       designed for use in the pmiectl(1) script.
