PCM more detailed instructions for using ksysguard

Current PCM documentation provides LinuxHowTo.pdf which does not show the custom command to use in ksysguard when setting up to monitor a remote machine. Could you elaborate on what to do to set this up? Could you possibly provide instructions on how to set this up when running a Ubuntu VM on a Windows machine and monitoring the host Windows machine counters?

Thank you!

Thanks for your interest in Intel PCM.

The program pcm-sensor.x implements the Interface for a sensor in KSysGuard. See, for example, https://techbase.kde.org/Development/Tutorials/Sensors

However, hypervisors are normally hiding the devices that are needed to run PCM. Recommendation is to run PCM directly on the host System (Windows in this case.)
