This project involves advancing the performance analysis capabilities provided by the PCP integration within the pbench benchmarking and analysis framework. The problems to be worked on are:
- Modifying pbench to leverage pmlogger's remote collection capabilities and leverage PCP's archive compression feature for efficient storage.
- Enhancing pbench with the ability to enable live display of collected metrics via Grafana.
- Modify PCP to provide new pmcd agent metrics, pmlogger and pmlogconf templates tailored to recommended performance analysis data collection for target workloads (database, web server, computation, low-latency networking, etc.)
