RSiDelSetStat Subroutine


Deletes a single statistic identified by an SpmiStatVals pointer from an SpmiStatSet.


RSI Library (libSpmi.a)


#include sys/Rsi.h

int RSiDelSetStat(rhandle, ssp, svp)
RSiHandle rhandle;struct SpmiStatSet *ssp;struct SpmiStatVals*svp;


The RSiDelSetStat subroutine performs the following actions:

  1. Validates the SpmiStatSet identified by the second argument exists and contains the SpmiStatVals statistic identified by the third argument.
  2. Deletes the SpmiStatVals value from the SpmiStatSet so that future data_feed packets do not include the deleted statistic.


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

sspMust be a pointer to a structure type struct SpmiStatSet, which was previously returned by a successful RSiCreateStatSet (RSiCreateStatSet Subroutine) subroutine call.

svpMust be a handle of type struct SpmiStatVals as returned by a successful RSiPathAddSetStat (RSiPathAddSetStat Subroutine) subroutine call.

Return Values

If successful, the subroutine returns a zero value; otherwise it returns a non-zero value and an error text may be placed in the external character array RSiEMsg.

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.
