  I.    Introduction
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Perfkit is a performance recording toolkit for developers and system
administrators.  It can be used for both profiling systems software and
applications as well as monitoring servers and remote devices.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 II.    Installation and Running
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Perfkit is packaged in the standard format for most GNU/Linux-based software.
Use the standard `./configure', `make', `make install' to build and install
Perfkit.

Perfkit contains a runtime agent that manages profiling and systems
monitoring.  It can be run using `perfkit-agent'.

Perfkit contains a basic gui for adminstration of the agent. It is called
perfkit-gui and lives in the directory of the same name.

The profiler gui, perfkit-profiler, contains a Gtk and GooCanvas based
interface into the same perfkit-agent. It is found in the perfkit-profiler
directory.

A command line interface to the perfkit-agent can be found in the tools
directory, and is named perfkit-shell.

III.	Contributing
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Perfkit is actively looking for contributors to help improve the codebase
and add collection data sources.

You can find more information on the architecture of Perfkit and a layout
of the codebase in HACKING which can be found in the same directory as this
file.
