NAMEpmLookupInDomText - return text describing a performance metrics instance domain
C SYNOPSIS#include <pcp/pmapi.h>
int pmLookupInDomText(pmInDom indom, int level, char **buffer);
DESCRIPTIONProvided 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.
if the current PMAPI context is an archive log
(help and one-line text is not maintained in the archive logs)
