NAME

       pmiPutLabel - add labels to the output archive

C SYNOPSIS

       #include <pcp/pmapi.h>
       #include <pcp/import.h>

       int pmiPutLabel(unsigned int type, unsigned int id, unsigned int instance, const char
               *name, const char *value)

       cc ... -lpcp_import -lpcp

Perl SYNOPSIS

       use PCP::LogImport;

       pmiPutLabel($type, $id, $instance, $name, $value);

DESCRIPTION

       As part of the Performance Co-Pilot Log Import API (see LOGIMPORT(3)), pmiPutLabel adds  a
       label  for  the  global  context  or for a given domain, cluster, item, instance domain or
       instance.

       The  type  must   be   one   of   PM_LABEL_CONTEXT,   PM_LABEL_DOMAIN,   PM_LABEL_CLUSTER,
       PM_LABEL_ITEM, PM_LABEL_INDOM, or PM_LABEL_INSTANCES.

       If type is PM_LABEL_CONTEXT, then id and instance are ignored.  Otherwise, id should match
       a domain, cluster, metric or instance domain defined earlier in a call to pmiAddMetric(3).

       If type is PM_LABEL_INSTANCES, then instance  should  match  an  instance  number  of  the
       selected domain. Otherwise instance is ignored.

       name is a string containing the name of the label to be added.

       value is a string containing the value of the label to be added.

       No  data will be written until pmiWrite(3) is called, so multiple calls to pmiPutLabel are
       typically used to accumulate several labels before calling pmiWrite(3).

DIAGNOSTICS

       pmiPutLabel returns zero on success else a negative value that can be turned into an error
       message by calling pmiErrStr(3).
