NAME

       pmiPutResult - add a data record to a LOGIMPORT archive

C SYNOPSIS

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

       int pmiPutResult(const pmResult *result);

       cc ... -lpcp_import -lpcp

DESCRIPTION

       As  part  of  the  Performance  Co-Pilot  Log  Import API (see LOGIMPORT(3)), pmiPutResult
       provides an interface for developers familiar with the internal  PCP  data  structures  to
       create output archives directly.

       By  building the pmResult data structure directly, then calling pmiPutResult the developer
       avoids  calls  to  pmiPutValue(3)  and/or  pmiPutValueHandle(3)  followed  by  a  call  to
       pmiWrite(3) for each record written to the archive.

       Any metrics and instances appearing in the result must have been defined by prior calls to
       pmiAddMetric(3) and pmiAddInstance(3).

       pmiPutResult will arrange for any new metadata (metrics and/or  instance  domain  changes)
       covered by result to be also written to the PCP archive.

       Because of the complexity of the pmResult data structure, this routine is not available in
       the Perl interface to the LOGIMPORT services.

DIAGNOSTICS

       pmiPutResult returns zero on success else a negative value that  can  be  turned  into  an
       error message by calling pmiErrStr(3).
