Return codeDescription

Remarks

The term real-time as used in the description of this function does not imply the standard meaning of the term real-time. Instead, it describes the collection of performance data from a source providing current information (for example, the registry or a WMI provider) rather than from a log file.

If you want to query real-time data from WMI, you must call PdhSetDefaultRealTimeDataSource to set the default real-time data source. You must call this function before calling any other PDH API function.
