pointer to an allocated and filled out memcached_analysis_t struct


libmemcached has the ability to query a memcached server (or collection of servers) for their current state. Queries to find state return a memcached_analysis_st structure. You are responsible for freeing this structure.

memcached_analyze() analyzes useful information based on the provided servers and sets the result to the memcached_analysis_st structure. The return value must be freed by the calling application.

A pointer to the allocated memcached_analysis_st structure on success and a NULL pointer on failure. You may inspect the error detail by checking the memcached_return_t value.

Any method returning a memcached_analysis_st expects you to free the memory allocated for it.
