 * PerfData Version Constants
 *   - Major Version - change whenever the structure of PerfDataEntry changes
 *   - Minor Version - change whenever the data within the PerfDataEntry
 *                     structure changes. for example, new unit or variability
 *                     values are added or new PerfData subtypes are added.

/* Byte order of the PerfData memory region. The byte order is exposed in
 * the PerfData memory region as the data in the memory region may have
 * been generated by a little endian JVM implementation. Tracking the byte
 * order in the PerfData memory region allows Java applications to adapt
 * to the native byte order for monitoring purposes. This indicator is
 * also useful when a snapshot of the PerfData memory region is shipped
 * to a machine with a native byte order different from that of the
 * originating machine.

 * The PerfDataPrologue structure is known by the PerfDataBuffer Java class
 * libraries that read the PerfData memory region. The size and the position
 * of the fields must be changed along with their counterparts in the
 * PerfDataBuffer Java class. The first four bytes of this structure
 * should never change, or compatibility problems between the monitoring
 * applications and Hotspot VMs will result. The reserved fields are
 * available for future enhancements.
