RSiChangeHotFeed Subroutine


Changes the frequency at which the xmservd on the host identified by the first argument daemon is sending hot_feed packets for a statset or checking if exceptions or SNMP traps should be generated.


RSI Library (libSpmi.a)


#include sys/Rsi.h

int RSiChangeFeed(rhandle, hotset, msecs)
RSiHandle rhandle;struct SpmiHotSet *hotset;int msecs;


rhandleMust be an RSiHandle, which was previously initialized by the RSiOpen (RSiOpen Subroutine) subroutine.

hotsetMust be a pointer to a structure of type struct SpmiHotSet, which was previously returned by a successful RsiCreateHotSet (RSiCreateHotSet Subroutine) subroutine call. Data feeding must have been started for this SpmiHotSet via a previous RSiStartHotFeed (RSiStartHotFeed Subroutine) subroutine call.

msecsThe number of milliseconds between the sending of Hot_feed packets. This number is rounded to a multiple of min_remote_int milliseconds by the xmservd daemon on the remote host. This minimum interval can be modified through the -i command line interval to xmservd.

Return Values

If successful, the subroutine returns zero, otherwise -1. A NULL error text is placed in the external character array RSiEMsg regardless of the subroutine's success or failure.

Error Codes

All RSI subroutines use external variables to provide error information. To access these variables, an application program must define the following external variables:

If the subroutine returns without an error, the RSiErrno variable is set to RSiOkay and the RSiEMsg character array is empty. If an error is detected, the RSiErrno variable returns an error code, as defined in the enum RSiErrorType. RSi error codes are described in List of RSi Error Codes.

Implementation Specifics

This subroutine is part of the Performance Toolbox for AIX licensed product.


/usr/include/sys/Rsi.h Declares the subroutines, data structures, handles, and macros that an application program can use to access the RSI.

In the sample program, the SpmiStatSet is created in the local function lststats shown previously in lines 6 through 10.
