PAPI_set_domain -

Set the default counting domain for new event sets bound to the cpu component.


Detailed Description

@par C Prototype:

int PAPI_set_domain( int domain ); @param domain one of the following constants as defined in the papi.h header file @arg PAPI_DOM_USER User context counted @arg PAPI_DOM_KERNEL Kernel/OS context counted @arg PAPI_DOM_OTHER Exception/transient mode counted @arg PAPI_DOM_SUPERVISOR Supervisor/hypervisor context counted @arg PAPI_DOM_ALL All above contexts counted @arg PAPI_DOM_MIN The smallest available context @arg PAPI_DOM_MAX The largest available context

Return values:

PAPI_EINVAL One or more of the arguments is invalid.

PAPI_set_domain sets the default counting domain for all new event sets created by PAPI_create_eventset in all threads. This call implicitly sets the domain for the cpu component (component 0) and is included to preserve backward compatibility.

// Initialize the library
ret = PAPI_library_init(PAPI_VER_CURRENT);
