PdhGetDataSourceTimeRangeH function (pdh.h)

Determines the time range, number of entries and, if applicable, the size of the buffer containing the performance data from the specified input source.

This function is identical to the PdhGetDataSourceTimeRange function, except that it supports the use of handles to data sources.

[in] hDataSource

Handle to a data source returned by the PdhBindInputDataSource function.

A PDH_TIME_INFO structure that receives the time range. The information spans all bound log files.

[in] pdwBufferSize

Size of the PDH_TIME_INFO structure, in bytes.
