NAME

pmdaStore - store a value into a metric for a PMDA  

C SYNOPSIS

#include <pcp/pmapi.h>
#include <pcp/impl.h>
#include <pcp/pmda.h>

int pmdaStore(pmResult *result, pmdaExt *pmda);

cc ... -lpcp_pmda -lpcp  

DESCRIPTION

As part of the Performance Metrics Domain Agent (PMDA) API (see PMDA(3)), pmdaStore is the generic callback for storing a value into a metric. pmdaStore is usually a no-op as, by default, no metrics can be altered. Also, the implementation of a store callback which does permit metrics to be altered by pmstore(1) is very application dependent.  

DIAGNOSTICS

pmdaStore returns EACCESS to indicate that no metrics may be modified.  

CAVEAT

The PMDA must be using PMDA_PROTOCOL_2 or later, as specified in the call to pmdaDSO(3) or pmdaDaemon(3).
