NAME

       pmdaDaemon - initialize the PMDA to run as a daemon

C SYNOPSIS

       #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

DESCRIPTION

       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).

DIAGNOSTICS

       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.

CAVEAT

       The PMDA must be using PMDA_INTERFACE_2 or later.
