DESCRIPTION         top

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

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

       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).
