What are you asking?
What is a "fs domain"?
What is a "domain"?

With respect to classic unix file system,  are you aware of
symbolic-links and hard-links, and do you understand that a file may
have zero, one or more names?

If you're asking for the path name of the executable, while it's
running, what about the dynamically loaded shared libraries?  Do you
realize that the file may be unlinked (deleted) while the program is
still running?
