NAME

       pmFreeResult - release storage allocated for performance metrics values

C SYNOPSIS

       #include <pcp/pmapi.h>

       void pmFreeResult(pmResult *result);

       cc ... -lpcp

DESCRIPTION

       The  variable  sized  results  returned  by pmFetch(3) are allocated below the Performance
       Metrics Application Programming Interface (PMAPI) using a  combination  of  dynamic  (i.e.
       malloc(3)) and specialized allocation strategies.

       Applications  should  call  pmFreeResult  to  release the storage previously allocated for
       result by pmFetch(3), when the application no  longer  requires  access  to  the  pmResult
       structure.

       Under  no  circumstances  should  an  application  use  free(result)  to  release  storage
       previously allocated for a pmResult by pmFetch(3).
