PMIPUTVALUEHANDLE(3) Library Functions Manual PMIPUTVALUEHANDLE(3)NAME
pmiPutValueHandle - add a value for a metric-instance pair via a handle
int pmiPutValueHandle(int handle, const char *value);
cc ... -lpcp_import -lpcp
As part of the Performance Co-Pilot Log Import API (see LOGIMPORT(3)), pmiPutValueHandle adds a single value to the current output record
for a given metric and instance, using the handle defined by an earlier call to pmiGetHandle(3).
The value should be in a format consistent with the metric's type as defined in the call to pmiAddMetric(3).
No data will be written until pmiWrite(3) is called, so multiple calls to pmiPutValueHandle or pmiPutValue(3) are typically used to accumu-
late data values for several metric-instance pairs before calling pmiWrite(3).
pmiPutValueHandle returns zero on success else a negative value that can be turned into an error message by calling pmiErrStr(3).
SEE ALSO LOGIMPORT(3), pmiErrStr(3), pmiGetHandle(3), pmiPutResult(3), pmiPutValue(3) and pmiWrite(3).

pmdaText - extract metric help text for a PMDA
int pmdaText(int ident, int type, char **buffer, pmdaExt *pmda);
cc ... -lpcp_pmda -lpcp
As part of the Performance Metrics Domain Agent (PMDA) API (see PMDA(3)), pmdaText uses the standard PMDA(3) data structures to return the
help text for metric ident in buffer. The help text must be located in help text files created with newhelp(1), and the associated files
are automatically opened by pmdaInit(3).
The path to the (basename of the) help text files can be set in the calls to pmdaDSO(3) or pmdaDaemon(3) and overridden by the -h command
line option in pmdaGetOpt(3).
The encoding of ident follows the internal scheme used below the routines pmLookupText(3) and pmLookupInDomText(3), namely ident encodes
either a metric identifier or an instance domain identifier, according to the value of type.
The type argument is a bit mask that encodes the interpretation of ident and the requested form of help text, as follows: either
PM_TEXT_PMID if ident is a metric identifier, or PM_TEXT_INDOM if ident is an instance domain identifier, plus either PM_TEXT_ONELINE for
the one line help text or PM_TEXT_HELP for the full help text.
The buffer is managed internally (usually it is cached), and it should not be released or freed by the caller of pmdaText.
If the requested help text could not be obtained, pmdaText will return PM_ERR_TEXT.
The PMDA must be using PMDA_PROTOCOL_2 or later, as specified in the call to pmdaDSO(3) or pmdaDaemon(3).
