NAME

       pmGetInDomArchive - get instance identifiers for a performance metrics instance domain

C SYNOPSIS

       #include <pcp/pmapi.h>

       int pmGetInDomArchive(pmInDom indom, int **instlist, char ***namelist);

       cc ... -lpcp

DESCRIPTION

       Provided the current Performance Metrics Application Programming Interface (PMAPI) context
       is associated with an archive log, pmGetInDomArchive  will  scan  the  union  of  all  the
       instance  domain  metadata  for  the  instance  domain  indom, and return via instlist the
       internal instance identifiers for all  instances,  and  via  namelist  the  full  external
       identifiers for all instances.

       This routine is a specialized version of the more general PMAPI routine pmGetInDom.

       The  number  of  instances found is returned as the function value (else less than zero to
       indicate an error).

       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.

       The  resulting  lists  of instance identifiers (instlist and namelist), and the names that
       the elements of namelist point to, will have been allocated by pmGetInDomArchive with  two
       calls  to  malloc(3C),  and  it  is the responsibility of the caller to free(instlist) and
       free(namelist) to release the space when it is no longer required.

       When the result of pmGetInDomArchive is less than one,  both  instlist  and  namelist  are
       undefined  (no space will have been allocated, and so calling free(3C) is a singularly bad
       idea).

PCP ENVIRONMENT

       Environment variables with the prefix PCP_ are used to parameterize the file and directory
       names used by PCP.  On each installation, the file /etc/pcp.conf contains the local values
       for these variables.  The $PCP_CONF  variable  may  be  used  to  specify  an  alternative
       configuration  file,  as  described  in  pcp.conf(4).   Values  for these variables may be
       obtained programatically using the pmGetConfig(3) function.

DIAGNOSTICS

       PM_ERR_NOTARCHIVE
              the current PMAPI context is not associated with an archive log

       PM_ERR_INDOM_LOG
              indom is not a defined instance domain identifier for the archive log
