NAME

       pmDupContext - duplicate a PMAPI context

C SYNOPSIS

       #include <pcp/pmapi.h>

       int pmDupContext(void);

       cc ... -lpcp

DESCRIPTION

       An application using the Performance Metrics Application Programming Interface (PMAPI) may
       manipulate several concurrent contexts, each  associated  with  a  source  of  performance
       metrics,  e.g.  pmcd(1)  on  some host, or a set of archive logs of performance metrics as
       created by pmlogger(1).

       Calling pmDupContext will replicate the current PMAPI context, returning a handle for  the
       new context that may be used with subsequent calls to pmUseContext(3).

       Once  created, the duplicated context and the original context have independent existence,
       and so their instance profiles and collection time (relevant only  for  archive  contexts)
       may be independently varied.

       The newly replicated context becomes the current context.
