Typedef Documentation

typedef int32_t(* qb_ipcs_connection_accept_fn) (qb_ipcs_connection_t *c, uid_t uid, gid_t gid)

This callback is to check whether you want to accept a new connection. The type of checks you should do are authentication, service availability or process resource constraints.

Returns:

0 to accept or -errno to indicate a failure (sent back to the client)

Note:

If connection state data is allocated as a result of this callback being invoked, that data must be freed in the destroy callback. Just because the accept callback returns 0, that does not guarantee the create and closed callback functions will follow.

you can call qb_ipcs_connection_auth_set() within this function.

typedef int32_t(* qb_ipcs_connection_closed_fn) (qb_ipcs_connection_t *c)

This is called after a connection has been disconnected.

Note:

This callback will only be invoked if the connection is successfully created.

if you return anything but 0 this function will be repeativily called (until 0 is returned).

typedef void(* qb_ipcs_connection_created_fn) (qb_ipcs_connection_t *c)

This is called after a new connection has been created.

Note:

A client connection is not considered connected until this callback is invoked.

typedef void(* qb_ipcs_connection_destroyed_fn) (qb_ipcs_connection_t *c)

This is called just before a connection is freed.

typedef struct qb_ipcs_connection qb_ipcs_connection_t

typedef int32_t(* qb_ipcs_dispatch_add_fn) (enum qb_loop_priority p, int32_t fd, int32_t events, void *data, qb_ipcs_dispatch_fn_t fn)

typedef int32_t(* qb_ipcs_dispatch_fn_t) (int32_t fd, int32_t revents, void *data)

typedef int32_t(* qb_ipcs_dispatch_mod_fn) (enum qb_loop_priority p, int32_t fd, int32_t events, void *data, qb_ipcs_dispatch_fn_t fn)

typedef int32_t(* qb_ipcs_job_add_fn) (enum qb_loop_priority p, void *data, qb_loop_job_dispatch_fn dispatch_fn)

typedef int32_t(* qb_ipcs_msg_process_fn) (qb_ipcs_connection_t *c, void *data, size_t size)

This is the message processing calback. It is called with the message data.

Associate a 'user' pointer with this connection.

Parameters:

context the point to associate with this connection.
c connection instance

See also:

qb_ipcs_context_get()

qb_ipcs_service_t* qb_ipcs_create (const char * name, int32_t service_id, enum qb_ipc_type type, struct qb_ipcs_service_handlers * handlers)

Create a new IPC server.

Parameters:

name for clients to connect to.

the new service instance.

void qb_ipcs_destroy (qb_ipcs_service_t * s)

Destroy the IPC server.

Parameters:

s service instance to destroy

void qb_ipcs_disconnect (qb_ipcs_connection_t * c)

Disconnect from this client.

Parameters:

c connection instance

void qb_ipcs_enforce_buffer_size (qb_ipcs_service_t * s, uint32_t max_buf_size)

Enforce the max buffer size clients must use from the server side.

Note:

Setting this will force client connections to use at least max_buf_size bytes as their buffer size. If this value is not set on the server, the clients enforce their own buffer sizes.

Parameters:

s ipc server instance
max_buf_size represented in bytes

ssize_t qb_ipcs_event_send (qb_ipcs_connection_t * c, const void * data, size_t size)

Send an asynchronous event message to the client.

Parameters:

c connection instance
data the message to send
size the size of the message

Returns:

size sent or -errno for errors

Note:

the data must include a qb_ipc_response_header at the top of the message. The client will read the size field to determine how much to recv.

When send returns -EMSGSIZE, this means the msg is too large and will never succeed. To determine the max msg size a client can be sent, use qb_ipcs_connection_get_buffer_size()

ssize_t qb_ipcs_event_sendv (qb_ipcs_connection_t * c, const struct iovec * iov, size_t iov_len)

iov the iovec struct that points to the message to send
iov_len the number of iovecs.

Returns:

size sent or -errno for errors

Note:

the iov[0] must be a qb_ipc_response_header. The client will read the size field to determine how much to recv.

When send returns -EMSGSIZE, this means the msg is too large and will never succeed. To determine the max msg size a client can be sent, use qb_ipcs_connection_get_buffer_size()

void qb_ipcs_poll_handlers_set (qb_ipcs_service_t * s, struct qb_ipcs_poll_handlers * handlers)
