How can we get the cumulative value of a Output:meter in Python:Plugin?

. which API function? . which calling point?

I recall some brief discussion about this here.

@S.Wang would using the Output:Meter:Cumulative object work? This will contain the running total of an Output:Meter starting from the beginning of the simulation. Either that or use Python code to accumulate Output:Meter values as you desire.

Thank you for replying!

I would like to get the cumulative value in my python plugin programs, but the Output:Meter:Cumulative is not accessible. (no such API.)

I also tried to get _meter_value on a calling point 'after Zone reporting', and accumulated it to generate an output variable. But this output result is not equal to the one from Output:Meter:Cumulative.
