Doc Text:
_pcp_ rebased to version 3.11.3 Performance Co-Pilot (PCP) is a suite of tools, services, and libraries for acquisition, archiving, and analysis of system-level performance measurements. The package has been upgraded to version 3.11.3. Highlighted improvements include: * `pcp-ipcs` - new command to show inter-process communication * `pcp-atopsar` - new PMAPI sar command based on http://atoptool.nl * `pcp-vmstat` - wrapper for `pmstat` modified to more closely resemble `vmstat` * `libpcp` - new *fetchgroup* API * `pmdamic` - new PMDA for Intel MIC card metrics * `pmdaslurm` - new PMDA exporting HPC scheduler metrics * `pmdapipe` - command output event capture PMDA * `pmdaxfs` - support for per-device XFS metrics * `pmdavmware` - updated to work with current VMWare Perl API * `pmdaperfevent` - variety of improvements surrounding derived metrics; added reference clock cycles for NHM and WSM * `pmdaoracle` - Oracle database metrics available and updated * `pmdads389` - added normalized dn cache metrics * `pmdalinux` - added metrics for per numa node memory bandwidth, shared memory segments, IPC, MD driver stats, transparent-huge-page zero page alloc counters, NVME devices, IPv6 metrics * `pmdaelasticsearch` - restrict to local node metrics by default and adjust to *elasticsearch* API change * `pmdaxfs` - support for per-device XFS metrics * `pmrep` - powerful and versatile metric-reporting utility * `pmlogconf` - support for automatic recording of Oracle database, nginx, elasticsearch, memcache, and application metrics supplied by `mmv` * `zbxpcp` - Zabbix Agent loadable module for *PCP* metrics supporting Zabbix v2 and v3 simultaneously * `pmcd` - support for starting PMDAs via `pmdaroot`, allowing restart on PMDA failure without restarting `pmcd` itself * `sar2pcp` - support for additional `mem.util` metrics and _sysstat-11.0.1_ commands * `pmmgr` - added general monitor-program launching option * `pcp-atop` - updated with latest `atop` features (especially NFS-related) * `libpcp` - allowed the name of a server certificate to be customized; added support for permanent, global derived metrics, and multi-archive contexts * `pmdaproc` - *cgroup* `blkio` throttle throughput and IOPS metrics * `pcp-iostat` - added the `-R` flag for device-name matching using regular expressions and the `-G` flag for *sum*, *avg*, *min*, or *max statistics* * `pmieconf` - new rule to automate restarting of unresponsive PMDAs

Hi Nathan,

Could you please check the Release Notes text?

Thank you.

Comment 5 Lukas Berk 2016-08-25 12:51:16 UTC
Hi Robert,

Looks good for the most part, however I might tweak this line:

   * `pmlogconf`: allows for automatic recording of Oracle database, nginx, elasticsearch, memcache, and application metrics supplied by `mmap`


   * `pmlogconf`: support for automatic recording of Oracle database, nginx,
elasticsearch, memcache, and application metrics supplied by `mmv`

as we're just tweaking the default configuration and not adding a new tool.  Would also change the `mmap` to `mmv` as it's PCP's specific memory mapped format for application metrics.
