RSiCreateStatSet Subroutine


Creates an empty statset on the remote host identified by the argument.


RSI Library (libSpmi.a)


#include sys/Rsi.h

struct SpmiStatSet *RSiCreateStatSet(rhandle)
RSiHandle rhandle;


The RSiCreateStatSet subroutine allocates an SpmiStatSet structure. The structure is initialized as an empty SpmiStatSet and a pointer to the SpmiStatSet structure is returned.

The SpmiStatSet structure provides the anchor point to a set of statistics and must exist before the RSiPathAddSetStat (RSiPathAddSetStat Subroutine) subroutine can be successfully called.


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

Return Values

The RSiCreateStatSet subroutine returns a pointer to a structure of type SpmiStatSet if successful. If unsuccessful, the subroutine returns a NULL value.

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.
