pmdaDaemon - initialize the PMDA to run as a daemon
#include <pcp/pmapi.h> #include <pcp/impl.h> #include <pcp/pmda.h> void pmdaDaemon(pmdaInterface *dispatch, int interface, char *name, int domain, char *logfile, char *helptext); cc ... -lpcp_pmda -lpcp
pmdaDaemon initializes the pmdaInterface structure to use the interface extensions assuming the PMDA(3) is to be run as a daemon. The pmdaInterface structure is initialized with: name The name of the agent. domain The default domain number of the agent which uniquely identifies this PMDA from other running PMDAs. This may be subsequently changed by a command line option -d (see pmdaGetOpt(3)). logfile The default path to the log file. This may be replaced by the -l command line option if using pmdaGetOpt. helptext The default path to the help text (see pmdaText(3). This may be replaced by the -h command line option if using pmdaGetOpt(3). If no help text is installed, or you are not using pmdaText(3), then this should be set to NULL. The callbacks are initialized to pmdaProfile(3), pmdaFetch(3), pmdaDesc(3), pmdaText(3), pmdaInstance(3) and pmdaStore(3).
Unable to allocate memory for pmdaExt structure In addition, the dispatch->status field is set to a value less than zero. PMDA interface version interface not supported The interface version is not supported by pmdaDaemon.
The PMDA must be using PMDA_INTERFACE_2 or later.
PMAPI(3), PMDA(3), pmdaDSO(3), pmdaGetOpt(3) and pmdaText(3).
