Perl SYNOPSIS         top

       use PCP::LogImport;

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

DESCRIPTION         top

       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,

       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

       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         top

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