NAME

       pmSetDebug, pmClearDebug - manipulate PCP debugging control options

C SYNOPSIS

       #include <pcp/pmapi.h>

       int pmSetDebug(const char *spec);
       int pmClearDebug(const char *spec);

       cc ... -lpcp

DESCRIPTION

       Within  the  libraries  and  applications  of  the  Performance Co-Pilot (PCP) there is an
       extensive set of debugging options that may be enabled or disabled at run-time.

       Both pmSetDebug and pmClearDebug parse spec assuming it to be a comma  separated  list  of
       PCP debug option names.

       The names of the available options may be found using the -l argument to pmdbg(1).

       As  a  special  case,  the name ``all'' is treated as a synonym for identifying all option
       names.

       pmSetDebug  will  set  the  corresponding  options,  while  pmClearDebug  will  clear  the
       corresponding options.

       Consecutive  calls  to  either  routine  will be additive.  For example the following code
       fragments are equivalent in terms of the final configuration of the debug options.

            sts = pmClearDebug("all");
            sts = pmSetDebug("appl0");
            sts = pmSetDebug("pdu,fetch");
            sts = pmSetDebug("fetch,profile,context");
            sts = pmClearDebug("appl0");

            sts = pmClearDebug("all");
            sts = pmSetDebug("pdu,fetch,profile,context");

       An earlier implementation of the PCP debug facilities used a bit-vector and for  backwards
       compatibility  the elements of spec may include decimal values corresponding to those bit-
       values.  Refer to pmdbg(1) for more details of this deprecated format.

DIAGNOSTICS

       If successful, these routines return 0, otherwise the return is PM_ERR_CONV to indicate  a
       parsing error.
