NAME

       pmiPutText - add help text for an metric or instance domain

C SYNOPSIS

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

       int pmiPutText(unsigned int type, unsigned int class, unsigned int id, const char
               *content)

       cc ... -lpcp_import -lpcp

Perl SYNOPSIS

       use PCP::LogImport;

       pmiPutText($type, $class, $id, $content);

DESCRIPTION

       As part of the Performance Co-Pilot Log Import API  (see  LOGIMPORT(3)),  pmiPutText  adds
       help text for a given metric or instance domain.

       The type must be one of PM_TEXT_PMID or PM_TEXT_INDOM.

       The class must be one of PM_TEXT_ONELINE or PM_TEXT_HELP.

       If  type  is  PM_TEXT_PMID,  then  id  should  match  a  pmid defined earlier in a call to
       pmiAddMetric(3).  If type is PM_TEXT_INDOM,  then  id  should  match  an  instance  domain
       defined earlier in a call to pmiAddMetric(3).

       content is a string containing the content of the help text.

       No  data  will be written until pmiWrite(3) is called, so multiple calls to pmiPutText are
       typically used to accumulate help text for several  metrics  or  instance  domains  before
       calling pmiWrite(3).

DIAGNOSTICS

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