NAME         top

       pmiUnits, pmiID, pmiInDom - construct core metric data structures

C SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <pcp/import.h>

       pmID pmiID(int domain, int cluster, int item);

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
       (especially 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.
