NAME

       pmFreeLabelSets - release storage allocated for performance metric labels

C SYNOPSIS

       #include <pcp/pmapi.h>

       void pmFreeLabelSets(pmLabelSet *sets, int nsets);

       cc ... -lpcp

DESCRIPTION

       The array of label sets returned by pmLookupLabels(3) and related APIs are allocated below
       the Performance Metrics Application Programming Interface (PMAPI) using a variety of calls
       to the system's dynamic memory allocation (i.e. malloc(3)) interfaces.

       Applications  should  call pmFreeLabelSets to release the storage previously allocated for
       the label sets array when access to the structure is no longer needed.  The  return  value
       from  pmLookupLabels  indicates  the  number of elements in the label sets array, and this
       should be passed in using the nsets parameter.

       Under no circumstances  should  an  application  use  free(labelset)  to  release  storage
       previously allocated for a pmLabelSet by pmLookupLabels(3) or related APIs.
