Sets system wide Performance Monitor programmation.
Performance Monitor APIs Library (libpmapi.a)
int pm_set_program ( *prog)
The pm_set_program subroutine sets system wide Performance Monitor programmation. The setting includes the events to be counted, and a mode in which to count. The events to count are in a list of event identifiers. The identifiers must be selected from the lists returned by the pm_init subroutine.
The counting mode includes User Mode and/or Kernel Mode, the Initial Counting State, and the Process Tree Mode. The Process Tree Mode sets counting to On only for the calling process and its descendants. The defaults are set to Off for User Mode and Kernel Mode. The initial default state is set to delay counting until the pm_start subroutine is called, and to count the activity of all the processes running in the system.
If the list includes an event which can be used with a threshold (as indicated by the pm_init subroutine), a threshold value can also be specified.
|*prog||Specifies the events and modes to use in Performance Monitor
setup. The following modes are supported:
|0||Operation completed successfully.|
|Positive Error Code||Refer to the pm_error (pm_error Subroutine) subroutine to decode the error code.|
Refer to the pm_error (pm_error Subroutine) subroutine.
|/usr/include/pmapi.h||Defines standard macros, data types, and subroutines.|
The pm_init (pm_init Subroutine) subroutine, pm_error (pm_error Subroutine) subroutine, pm_get_program (pm_get_program Subroutine) subroutine, pm_delete_program (pm_delete_program Subroutine) subroutine, pm_get_data (pm_get_data Subroutine) subroutine, pm_start (pm_start Subroutine) subroutine, pm_stop (pm_stop Subroutine) subroutine, pm_reset_data (pm_reset_data Subroutine) subroutine.
