       pmsocks - shell wrapper for performance monitoring across firewalls

SYNOPSIS         top

       pmsocks path [args ...]

DESCRIPTION         top

       pmsocks allows Performance Co-Pilot (PCP) clients running on hosts
       located on the internal side of a TCP/IP firewall to monitor remote
       hosts on the other side of the firewall.  This assumes the firewall
       has been configured with a compliant sockd daemon and the necessary
       access controls are satisfied.

       pmsocks is a thin shell wrapper around the tsocks(8) library using
       the tsocks(1) utility, which are not included with PCP.  You can
       obtain tsocks from .
