Hi

xmtopas is not meant to ba started by an end user, it's rather started by inetd.

The xmtopas daemon acts as a recording facility and is controlled through the xmtopas.cf configuration file. This daemon simultaneously provides near real-time network-based data monitoring and local recording on a given node.

It's part of the perfagent.tools fileset.

xmtopas is used instead of xmservd in environments which don't have the (separately licensed) perfagent.server fileset installed. It listens on the xmquery port for local or remote performance data consumers, like topas (local) or xmperf (remote).
