NAME

       pmLookupInDomArchive - translate an instance name into an instance identifier

C SYNOPSIS

       #include <pcp/pmapi.h>

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

       cc ... -lpcp

DESCRIPTION

       Provided the current Performance Metrics Application Programming Interface (PMAPI) context
       is associated with an archive log, pmLookupInDomArchive will scan the  union  of  all  the
       instance domain metadata for the instance domain indom, locate the first instance with the
       external identification given by name, and return the internal instance identifier.

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

       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.

       pmLookupInDomArchive will return a positive instance identifier on success.

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

       PM_ERR_INST_LOG
              the external instance name is not known  for  the  instance  domain  indom  in  the
              archive log
