DESCRIPTION         top

       As part of the Performance Co-Pilot Log Import API (see
       LOGIMPORT(3)), pmiUseContext may be used by applications wishing to
       generate more than one PCP archive concurrently.

       The context argument is a value returned from a previous call to
       pmStart(3) and on successful return from pmiUseContext, the current
       context will have been changed to the one identified by context.

DIAGNOSTICS         top

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