int MPI_T_pvar_write(MPI_T_pvar_session session, MPI_T_pvar_handle handle, const void *buf)


  • session: Performance experiment session.

  • handle: Performance variable handle.

  • buf: Initial address of storage location for variable value.

MPI_T_pvar_write attempts to set the value of the performance variable identified by the handle specified in handle in the session specified in session. The value to be written is specified in buf. The caller must ensure that the buffer specified in buf is large enough to hold the entire value of the performance variable.
