NAME

       pmiPutValueHandle - add a value for a metric-instance pair via a handle

C SYNOPSIS

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

       int pmiPutValueHandle(int handle, const char *value);

       cc ... -lpcp_import -lpcp

Perl SYNOPSIS

       use PCP::LogImport;

       pmiPutValueHandle($handle, $value);

DESCRIPTION

       As  part  of the Performance Co-Pilot Log Import API (see LOGIMPORT(3)), pmiPutValueHandle
       adds a single value to the current output record for a given metric  and  instance,  using
       the handle defined by an earlier call to pmiGetHandle(3).

       The  value  should be in a format consistent with the metric's type as defined in the call
       to pmiAddMetric(3).

       No  data  will  be  written  until  pmiWrite(3)  is   called,   so   multiple   calls   to
       pmiPutValueHandle  or  pmiPutValue(3)  are  typically  used  to accumulate data values for
       several metric-instance pairs before calling pmiWrite(3).

DIAGNOSTICS

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