NAME

       pmLookupInDom - translate an instance name into an instance identifier

C SYNOPSIS

       #include <pcp/pmapi.h>

       int pmLookupInDom(pmInDom indom, const char *name);

       cc ... -lpcp

DESCRIPTION

       For  the instance domain indom, in the current Performance Metrics Application Programming
       Interface (PMAPI) context, locate the instance with the external identification  given  by
       name, and return the internal instance identifier.

       Only the leading non-space characters of name will be used to identify the instance.

       The  value  for  the instance domain indom is typically extracted from a pmDesc structure,
       following a call to pmLookupDesc(3) for a particular performance metric.

       pmLookupInDom will return a positive instance identifier on success.

       PM_ERR_INST
