This documentation is intended for internal Performance Co-Pilot (PCP) developer use.

These interfaces are not part of the PCP APIs that are guaranteed to remain fixed across releases, and they may not work, or may provide different semantics at some point in the future.


Given a numeric archive metadata record type (type), pmLogMetaTypeStr produces the ASCII name of that record type, else UNKNOWN if type is not a valid record type. pmLogMetaTypeStr_r function does the same, but stores the result in a user-supplied buffer buf of length buflen, which should have room for at least 17 bytes.

Examples are DESC (for type equals 0), INDOM_V2 (for type equals 1), etc.


Both of these functions are safe to call from threaded contexts.
