NAME         top

       pmiWrite - flush data to a LOGIMPORT archive

C SYNOPSIS         top

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

       int pmiWrite(int sec, int usec);

       cc ... -lpcp_import -lpcp

Perl SYNOPSIS         top

       use PCP::LogImport;

       pmiWrite($sec, $usec);

DESCRIPTION         top

       As part of the Performance Co-Pilot Log Import API (see
       LOGIMPORT(3)), pmiWrite forces accumulated data values out to the PCP
       archive.

       The data values and associated metadata have previously been built up
       using calls to pmiAddMetric(3), pmiAddInstance(3), pmiPutValue(3) and
       pmiPutValueHandle(3).

       The current set of data values and any new metadata is written to the
       archive with a timestamp of sec and usec in the source timezone of
       the archive, see pmiSetTimezone(3).

DIAGNOSTICS         top

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