NAME         top

       pmiUnits, pmiID, pmiInDom - construct core metric data structures

C SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <pcp/pmapi.h>
       #include <pcp/import.h>

       pmID pmiID(int domain, int cluster, int item);
       pmInDom pmiInDom(int domain, int serial);

               int scaleSpace, int scaleTime, int scaleCount);

Perl SYNOPSIS         top

       use PCP::LogImport;

       $pmid = pmiID($domain, $cluster, $item);
       $indom = pmiInDom($domain, $serial);
       $units = pmiUnits($dimSpace, $dimTime, $dimCount, $scaleSpace,
               $scaleTime, $scaleCount);

DESCRIPTION         top

       As   part  of  the  Performance  Co-Pilot  Log  Import  API  (see
       LOGIMPORT(3)), these routines provide convenience methods  (espe‐
       cially for script use) for constructing pmID, pmInDom and pmUnits
       structures  respectively,  to  be  used  in  subsequent  calls to
       pmiAddMetric(3) and pmiAddInstance(3).

       Refer to pmLookupDesc(3) for a complete description of the values
       and semantics of the components of a pmUnits structure, and hence
       the valid argument values for pmiUnits.
