Provided that the current Performance Metrics Application Programming
Interface (PMAPI) context is associated with an archive log,
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
The value for the instance domain indom is typically extracted from a
pmDesc structure, following a call to pmLookupDesc(3) for a particular
The space for the value of name will have been allocated in
pmNameInDomArchive with malloc(3C), and it is the responsibility of the
caller to free(3C) the space when it is no longer required.
pmNameInDomArchive returns zero on success.
