RSTAT(3RPC) RPC Library Functions RSTAT(3RPC)


NAME


rstat, havedisk - get performance data from remote kernel

SYNOPSIS


cc [ flag ... ] file ... -lrpcsvc [ library ... ]
#include <rpc/rpc.h>
#include <rpcsvc/rstat.h>

enum clnt_stat rstat(char *host, struct statstime *statp);


int havedisk(char *host);


PROTOCOL


/usr/include/rpcsvc/rstat.x

DESCRIPTION


These routines require that the rpc.rstatd(1M) daemon be configured and
available on the remote system indicated by host. The rstat() protocol is
used to gather statistics from remote kernel. Statistics will be
available on items such as paging, swapping, and cpu utilization.


rstat() fills in the statstime structure statp for host. statp must
point to an allocated statstime structure. rstat() returns RPC_SUCCESS
if it was successful; otherwise a enum clnt_stat is returned which can be
displayed using clnt_perrno(3NSL).


havedisk() returns 1 if host has disk, 0 if it does not, and -1 if this
cannot be determined.


The following XDR routines are available in librpcsvc:

xdr_statstime
xdr_statsvar
