NAME

pmNoMem - report out of memory conditions

C SYNOPSIS

#include < pcp/pmapi.h >

void pmNoMem(const char * where , size_t size , int fatal );

cc ... -lpcp

DESCRIPTION

pmNoMem is a convenience method that may be used when malloc (3) or a related memory allocation service fails.

A standard message is emitted using pmNotifyErr (3) with where used as a message prefix and the failing allocation size is also reported.

If fatal is zero (and PM_RECOV_ERR is zero), pmNoMem returns (the allocation failure is assumed to be recoverable by the caller), else (and PM_FATAL_ERR is a good value to use in this case) exit (2) is called with an argument of 1.
