       pmInDomStr,  pmInDomStr_r - convert a performance metric instance domain identifier into a


       #include <pcp/pmapi.h>

       const char *pmInDomStr(pmInDom indom);
       char *pmInDomStr_r(pmInDom indom, char *buf, int buflen);

       cc ... -lpcp


       For use in error and diagnostic messages, pmInDomStr return a 'human readable' version  of
       the  specified  instance  domain identifier.  The pmInDomStr_r function does the same, but
       stores the result in a user-supplied buffer buf of length buflen, which should  have  room
       for at least 20 bytes.

       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.

       Internally, an instance domain identifier is encoded with two fields: domain and serial.

       pmInDomStr returns a string  with  each  of  the  fields  appearing  as  decimal  numbers,
       separated by periods.

       The string value returned by pmInDomStr is held in a single static buffer, so the returned
       value is only valid until the next call to pmInDomStr.


       pmInDomStr returns a pointer to a static buffer and  hence  is  not  thread-safe.   Multi-
       threaded applications should use pmInDomStr_r instead.


       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(5).   Values  for  these  variables  may  be
       obtained programmatically using the pmGetConfig(3) function.
