PCP Environment

Environment variables with the prefix PCP_ are used to parameterize the file and directory names used by PCP. On each installation, the file /etc/pcp.conf contains the local values for these variables.  The $PCP_CONF variable may be used to specify an alternative  configuration file, as described in pcp.conf(5).
