NAME         top

       pmInDom_build, pmInDom_domain, pmInDom_serial - helper methods
       for manipulating instance domain identifiers

C SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <pcp/pmapi.h>

       pmInDom pmInDom_build(unsigned int domain, unsigned int serial);
       unsigned int pmInDom_domain(pmInDom indom);
       unsigned int pmInDom_serial(pmInDom indom);

       cc ... -lpcp

DESCRIPTION         top

       Within the Performance Co-Pilot (PCP) each instance domain is
       assigned a unique Instance Domain Identifier (pmInDom).
       Internally a pmInDom is constructed from 2 fields: the domain
       number (of the associated Performance Metrics Domain Agent, or
       PMDA) and the serial number (assigned by the PMDA).

       pmInDom_build constructs a pmInDom from domain and serial.

       pmInDom_domain and pmInDom_serial return the respective fields
       from indom.
