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);

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
