CAVEAT         top

       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.

DESCRIPTION         top

       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 1), INDOM_V2 (for type equals
       2), etc.

NOTES         top

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