PAPI_set_granularity(3) Set the default counting granularity for eventsets bound to the cpu component.


Detailed Description

@par C Prototype:
    #include <papi.h> @n
    int PAPI_set_granularity( int granularity );
@param -- granularity one of the following constants as defined in the papi.h header file
@arg PAPI_GRN_THR   -- Count each individual thread
@arg PAPI_GRN_PROC  -- Count each individual process
@arg PAPI_GRN_PROCG -- Count each individual process group
@arg PAPI_GRN_SYS   -- Count the current CPU
@arg PAPI_GRN_SYS_CPU   -- Count all CPUs individually
@arg PAPI_GRN_MIN   -- The finest available granularity
@arg PAPI_GRN_MAX   -- The coarsest available granularity 


Return values:

PAPI_EINVAL One or more of the arguments is invalid.

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


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

// Set the default granularity for the cpu component
ret = PAPI_set_granularity(PAPI_GRN_PROC);
if (ret != PAPI_OK) handle_error(ret);
ret = PAPI_create_eventset(&EventSet);
