nng_stat_type(3)

SYNOPSIS

#include <nng/nng.h>

typedef struct nng_stat nng_stat;

enum {
        NNG_STAT_SCOPE,
        NNG_STAT_LEVEL,
        NNG_STAT_COUNTER,
        NNG_STAT_STRING,
        NNG_STAT_BOOLEAN,
        NNG_STAT_ID
};

int nng_stat_type(nng_stat *stat);

DESCRIPTION

The nng_stat_type() function returns the type of the statistic stat.

The returned type will be one of the following values:

NNG_STAT_SCOPE

This is a placeholder providing scope, and carries no value on its own. Instead it is a parent node with child statistics (see nng_stat_child().)

NNG_STAT_LEVEL

This is a numeric statistic, but its value is a level, so rate calculations based on changes in this value should not be considered significant.

NNG_STAT_COUNTER

This is a numeric statistic that represents an increasing count, typically of events, messages, or bytes. Frequently, it is interesting to consider changes in this statistic divided by time to obtain a rate. (For example, throughput might be calculated as changes in a byte counter divided by the interval over which the change occurred.)

NNG_STAT_STRING

This is a string, and carries no numeric value. Instead the nng_stat_string() function should be used to obtain the value.

NNG_STAT_BOOLEAN

This is a boolean value. The nng_stat_value() function will return zero to represent a false value, and one to represent a true value.

NNG_STAT_ID: The statistic is a numeric ID. These are generally immutable values that represent an identity that might be used with another interface.

For NNG_STAT_COUNTER and NNG_STAT_LEVEL statistics, the nng_stat_unit() function will provide more detail about the units measured by the static.

RETURN VALUES

The statistic type for stat.

ERRORS

None.
