pmdaDaemon - initialize the PMDA to run as a daemon
void pmdaDaemon(pmdaInterface *dispatch, int interface, char *name, int
domain, char *logfile, char *helptext);
cc ... -lpcp_pmda -lpcp
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
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
The callbacks are initialized to pmdaProfile(3), pmdaFetch(3),
pmdaDesc(3), pmdaText(3), pmdaInstance(3) and pmdaStore(3).
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.
The PMDA must be using PMDA_INTERFACE_2 or later.
