swinstall -s ... etc ...
There are other "safer" ways of doing it, like taking a backup before hand, but the above has worked for me & I did it on-line (e.g. the applications were on-line as opposed to glance/mwa being on-line).

If you are just installing glance not mwa then mwa start will not be there. So installatiom by default would start ttd , midaemon. So you can start using glance/gpm dependingly.

keep attention: if you have both glance than mwa and you will launch only a glance upgrade than probably the mwa will not work well (glance and mwa use the same library).
I would launch also a midaemon -T before deinstalling glance.

swinstall -s ... etc ...
What does "... etc ..." do?
Also, do i have to stop glance brfore installing? What is that command?

swinstall is the command used by HP to deinstall the packages.
However you should find the following script:
which allow to deistall the product.
You can find detailed information about install/deinstall at
I think you should:
1) make a backup copy of the conf file contained into /var/opt/perf/ and a copy of logfile in /var/opt/perf/datafiles (better an extract)
2) kill all glance processes
3) mwa stop
4) midaemon -T
5) ttd -k
This should deinstall the products.
Than install the new version.

swinstall -s /var/tmp/GlancePlusPak_372.depot and follow the menu instructions.
2 - I'm sure I prefixed my previous reply with "spurs and all".. The method I showed is probably NOT the HP 100%, fire proof, bullet proof method. It is however the way I do it/have done it/will do it. I do not uninstall the older version of mwa, as I want to preserve the old /var/opt/perf/datafiles & parm file. You do not need to (though you could, if you wished) unistall older versions of measureware/glance as the new version is a higher point version, so it will be over written.

glance uses common libaries/executibles to MeasureWare. One of them being ttd (Thread Tracker Daemon) the "ttd -k" kills the a core element of glance. I believe that this will crash any runnig glance sessions, so stopping any current glance sessions is wise, even though the ttd -k should also rip the rug out from under them anyway...
the "mwa stop" kills.. nicely.. the following
scopeux (MWA data collector)
midaemon (measurement interface daemon)
alarmgen (alarm generator)
agdbserver (alarm database server)
perflbd (location broker)
rep_server (repository server)
the "midaemon -T" command is a "kill -9" for midaemon, and should not be necessary as the "mwa stop" should kill it anyway... (this too should kill any runnig glance sessions).
