       dsilog - a program that logs incoming data

       dsilog logfile_set class [options]

       dsilog  is  a  program  that  logs  incoming  data.  A separate logging
       process must be used for each class you have defined. The  dsilog  pro‐
       gram expects to receive data from stdin.

       logfile_set    is  the  name of the logfile set where the data is to be
		      stored.  If it is not in the current directory, the name
		      must be fully qualified.

       class	      is the name of the class to be logged.

       -c char	      is  the character to be used as a string delimiter/sepa‐
		      rator.  You may not use  the  following  as  separators:
		      decimal,	minus  sign,  ^d,  \n.	Since  the  default is
		      blanks, if there are embedded spaces in any text	metric
		      names  then  you	must  specify a unique separator using
		      this option.

       -s second      is the number of seconds to summarize the data by.  Zero
		      turns  off  summarization, which means that all incoming
		      data is logged.  If this option is omitted,  the	summa‐
		      rization	rate  defaults to the RECORDS PER HOUR rate in
		      the class specification. Conversely, this	 option	 over‐
		      rides the value of RECORDS PER HOUR.

       -i fifo	      indicates	 that  the  input  should  come	 from the fifo
		      named. If fifo is not used, input comes from  stdin.  If
		      you  use	this method, start dsilog before starting your
		      collection process. See man page mkfifo for more	infor‐
		      mation about using a fifo.

       -f format file names  a file that describes the data that will be input
		      to the logging process. If this option is not specified,
		      dsilog  derives  the  format of the input from the class
		      specification with the following assumptions.  Each data
		      item in an input record corresponds to a metric that has
		      been defined in the class	 specification.	  The  metrics
		      are  defined  in the class specification in the order in
		      which they appear as data items in the input record.  If
		      there  are more data items in an input record than there
		      are metric definitions, dsilog  ignores  all  additional
		      data  items.  If the class specification lists more met‐
		      ric definitions than there are  input  data  items,  the
		      field   will  show  "missing"  data  when	 the  data  is
		      exported, and no data will be available for that	metric
		      when graphing data in the analysis software.  There is a
		      limit of 100 fields in the format file.

       -timestamp     indicates that the logging process  should  not  provide
		      the  timestamp,  but use the one already provided in the
		      input data.  The timestamp in the incoming data must  be
		      in UNIX timestamp format (seconds since 1/1/70 00:00:00)
		      and represents the local time (not Greenwich Mean Time).

       -asyn	      specifies that the data will arrive asynchronously  with
		      the  RECORDS PER HOUR rate.  If no data arrives during a
		      logging interval, the data for the last logging interval
		      is  repeated.   This causes a flat line to be drawn in a
		      graphical display of the data  and  causes  data	to  be
		      repeated in each record if the data is exported.

       -t	      prints everything that is logged to stdout in ASCII for‐

       -vi	      filters the input through dsilog and  writes  errors  to
		      stdout  instead  of the log file.	 It does not write the
		      actual data logged to stdout just the errors.  This  can
		      be used to check the validity of the input.

       -vo	      filters  the  input through dsilog and writes the actual
		      data logged and errors to	 stdout	 instead  of  the  log
		      file.   This  can	 be  used to check the validity of the
		      data summarization.

       dsilog -vers   displays the version of this program.

       dsilog -?      displays options	for  this  program.   If  your	system
		      interprets  ?  as	 a  wildcard character, use an invalid
		      option such as -xxx instead of -?.
