       pmLookupInDomText - return text describing a performance metrics instance domain


       #include <pcp/pmapi.h>

       int pmLookupInDomText(pmInDom indom, int level, char **buffer);

       cc ... -lpcp


       Provided   the  source  of  metrics  from  the  current  Performance  Metrics  Application
       Programming Interface (PMAPI) context is a  host,  retrieve  descriptive  text  about  the
       performance metrics instance domain identified by indom.

       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 argument level should be PM_TEXT_ONELINE for a one-line summary, else PM_TEXT_HELP for
       a more verbose description, suited to a help dialog.

       The  space  pointed  to  by  buffer  will  have  been  allocated in pmLookupInDomText with
       malloc(3C), and it is the responsibility of the caller to free(3C) the space when it is no
       longer required.

       pmLookupInDomText returns zero on success.


       chkhelp(1),   newhelp(1),   PMAPI(3),  pmGetConfig(3),  pmLookupDesc(3),  pmLookupText(3),
       pcp.conf(5) and pcp.env(5).


              if the current PMAPI context is an archive log  (help  and  one-line  text  is  not
              maintained in the archive logs)
