Feature #308135, revision 7
- Title: Upgrade Performance Co-Pilot (PCP) package
+ Title: Upgrade Performance Co-Pilot (PCP) package and add PCP GUI

Hackweek VI: Unconfirmed
Requester: Desirable

openSUSE-11.3: New
Requester: Desirable

Requested by: Martin Hicks (mohicks)
Developer: (Novell)
Partner organization:

OpenSuSE currently ships a fairly dated PCP package (2.5.0).  It would
be nice if a more modern
version of PCP was included.  Version 3.0.0 has just been released by
the community.  Part of
the effort to move from 2.9.x to 3.0 was to update some of the
packaging to split the libraries out of
the core package and to create various -devel packages.

+ Business case (Partner benefit):
+ PCP GUI adds the ability for users to graphically analyze
+ metrics from multiple sources in real time. Furthermore, it includes a
+ features to manage archive capture and playback.

Current source tarballs build very easily on opensuse. pcp-gui has a
