The first call to PAPI_ipc() will initialize the PAPI High Level interface, set up the counters to monitor PAPI_TOT_INS and PAPI_TOT_CYC events and start the counters. Subsequent calls will read the counters and return total real time, total process time, total instructions since the start of the measurement and the instructions per cycle rate since latest call to PAPI_ipc(). A call to PAPI_stop_counters() will stop the counters from running and then calls such as PAPI_start_counters() can safely be used.
*rtime -- total real time since the first PAPI_ipc() call
*ptime -- total process time since the first PAPI_ipc() call
*ins -- total instructions since the first call
*ipc -- instructions per cycle achieved since the previous call
In addition to the possible errors returned by the various PAPI Low Level calls, the following errors could also be returned:
PAPI_EINVAL The counters were already started by something other than: PAPI_ipc()
PAPI_ENOEVNT The total instructions or total cycles event does not exist.
PAPI_ENOMEM Insufficient memory to complete the operation.
PAPI_ipc() may be called by: the user application program
