       pmNameInDomArchive - translate an instance identifier into an instance name


       #include <pcp/pmapi.h>

       int pmNameInDomArchive(pmInDom indom, int inst, char **name);

       cc ... -lpcp


       Provided  that  the  current Performance Metrics Application Programming Interface (PMAPI)
       context is associated with a set of archive logs, pmNameInDomArchive will scan  the  union
       of  all  the  instance  domain  metadata  for  the instance domain indom, locate the first
       instance with the internal instance identifier given by inst, and return the full external
       instance identification via name.

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

       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 space for the value of name  will  have  been  allocated  in  pmNameInDomArchive  with
       malloc(3),  and  it is the responsibility of the caller to free(3) the space when it is no
       longer required.

       pmNameInDomArchive returns zero on success.


              the current PMAPI context is not associated with a set of archive logs

              indom is not a defined instance domain identifier for the set of archive logs

              the instance identifier inst is not known for the instance domain indom in the  set
              of archive logs
