Perl SYNOPSIS

use PCP::LogImport;

$pmid = pmiID($domain, $cluster, $item);
$indom = pmiInDom($domain, $serial);
$units = pmiUnits($dimSpace, $dimTime, $dimCount, $scaleSpace, $scaleTime, $scaleCount);

Description

As part of the Performance Co-Pilot Log Import API (see LOGIMPORT(3)), these routines provide convenience methods (especially for script use) for constructing pmID, pmInDom and pmUnits structures respectively, to be used in subsequent calls to pmiAddMetric(3) and pmiAddInstance(3).

Refer to pmLookupDesc(3) for a complete description of the values and semantics of the components of a pmUnits structure, and hence the valid argument values for pmiUnits.
