Enable command line activation of collecting performance data on HMC
Currently there is no way to programmatically change the data collection settings. The only way to change them is within the HMC gui. There needs to be a way to query and change them from the command line.
It appears that the commands are there (lsperfmon and chperfmon) but support refuses to provide documentation of the proper syntax in order to change the performance data collection.
