Miguel asked about cool tools.  Talk to Ken, he's the man.

Subject: scary ... irix and linux exchange simple PCP PDUs

After minor brain-failure on my part, we have success at exchanging
the PDU headers (with no translation for the PDU body).

linux -> linux -> linux

[guest@linux pcp]$ ./pdu-client -D1 -h linux.engr.sgi.com 12345
pdu-client: PID 12334
pdu-client: connected fd=3
[12334]pmXmitPDU: DATA_X fd=3 len=16
000:       10     700b     302e 12345678 
[12334]pmGetPDU: DATA_X fd=3 len=16 from=12329 moreinput? no
000:       10     700b     3029 12345678 

linux -> irix -> linux

[guest@linux pcp]$ ./pdu-client -D1 -h bozo.melbourne.sgi.com 12345
pdu-client: PID 12333
pdu-client: connected fd=3
[12333]pmXmitPDU: DATA_X fd=3 len=16
000:       10     700b     302d 12345678 
[12333]pmGetPDU: DATA_X fd=3 len=16 from=29807 moreinput? no
000:       10     700b     746f 12345678 

irix -> linux -> irix

bozo 8% ./pdu-client -D1 -h linux.engr.sgi.com 12345
pdu-client: PID 29821
pdu-client: connected fd=3
[29821]pmXmitPDU: DATA_X fd=3 len=16
000:       10     700b     747d 12345678 
[29821]pmGetPDU: DATA_X fd=3 len=16 from=12329 moreinput? no
000:       10     700b     3029 12345678 

Now moving onto the translation of the PDU body for each PDU type.
