nbd_get_handshake_flags - Man Page

see which handshake flags are supported

Synopsis

 #include <libnbd.h>

 unsigned nbd_get_handshake_flags (struct nbd_handle *h);

Description

Return the state of the handshake flags on this handle.  When the handle has not yet completed a connection (see nbd_aio_is_created), this returns the flags that the client is willing to use, provided the server also advertises those flags.  After the connection is ready (see nbd_aio_is_ready), this returns the flags that were actually agreed on between the server and client.  If the NBD protocol defines new handshake flags, then the return value from a newer library version may include bits that were undefined at the time of compilation.

Return Value

This call returns a bitmask.

Errors

This function does not fail.

Version

This function first appeared in libnbd 1.2.

If you need to test if this function is available at compile time check if the following macro is defined:

 #define LIBNBD_HAVE_NBD_GET_HANDSHAKE_FLAGS 1
