DESCRIPTION

As part of the Performance Metrics Domain Agent (PMDA) API (see PMDA (3)), pmdaProfile is the default callback which handles the receipt of a __pmProfile from pmcd (1). A profile describes the instances that pmcd requires in the pmResult structure returned by the next fetch. pmdaProfile simply stores the new profile.

CAVEAT

The PMDA must be using PMDA_PROTOCOL_2 or later, as specified in the call to pmdaDSO (3) or pmdaDaemon (3).
