rfiosetopt - set RFIO options
[1mint rfiosetopt (int [4m[22mopt[24m[1m, int *[4m[22mpval[24m[1m, int [4m[22mlen[24m[1m)[0m
[1mint rfio_setbufsize (int [4m[22ms[24m[1m, int [4m[22mbufsize[24m[1m)[0m
[1mrfiosetopt [22msets the RFIO option [4mopt[24m to the content of the memory cell
pointed by [4mpval[24m.
[1mrfio_setbufsize [22msets the size of the readahead buffer to be used on a
particular socket connection.
[4mopt[24m can have on of the following values:
The value pointed by pval can be 0, RFIO_READBUF,
RFIO_READAHEAD or RFIO_STREAM (V3).
If set to zero, a normal read will be used (one request
to the server per read).
If set to RFIO_READBUF, an internal buffer is allocated
in the client API, each call to the server fills this
buffer and the user buffer is filled from the internal
buffer. There is one server call per buffer fill.
If set to RFIO_READAHEAD, an initial call is sent to the
server which pushes data to the client buffer until end
of file is reached or an error occurs or a new request
comes from the client. There is no intermediate buffer
unless RFIO_READBUF|RFIO_READAHEAD is specified.
If RFIO_STREAM is set, the V3 protocol is enabled. This
uses 2 socket connections between the client and the
server and the server itself is multi-threaded allowing
overlap of disk and network operations. The data is
pushed on the data socket until end of file is reached or
an error occurs. The transfer can be interrupted by send-
ing a packet on the control socket.
Default is RFIO_READBUF.
The default internal buffer size is 128kB, but the buffer
size can be set with an entry RFIO IOBUFSIZE in
[1mshift.conf [22mor thru the environment variable RFIO_IOBUF-
The value pointed by pval can be RFIO_NONET or RFIO_NET.
If set to RFIO_NONET, the NET entries in [1mshift.conf [22mare
ignored. Default is RFIO_NET.
The value pointed by pval can be RFIO_RETRYIT or
If set to RFIO_RETRYIT, there will be retries on failing
connect. The number of retries is given by the environ-
ment variable RFIO_CONRETRY or the RFIO CONRETRY entry in
[1mshift.conf[22m. The retry interval (in seconds) is given by
the environment variable RFIO_CONRETRYINT or the RFIO
If set to RFIO_NOTIME2RETRY, there will be no retry on
Default is RFIO_RETRYIT.
The value pointed by pval can be RFIO_NOLOCAL or
RFIO_FORCELOCAL. If set to RFIO_FORCELOCAL, no parsing
is done on pathname. The file is assumed to be local.
Default is RFIO_NOLOCAL.
The [4mlen[24m argument is ignored.
[4ms[24m is the file descriptor of the receiving socket.
[4mbufsize[24m is the size of the readahead buffer to be used.
[1mrfiosetopt [22mreturns 0 if the operation was successful or -1 if the oper-
ation failed. In the latter case, [1mserrno [22mis set appropriately.
[1mENOMEM [22mbuffer could not be allocated.
[1mEINVAL [4m[22mopt[24m is not a valid option, [4mbufsize[24m is negative or the user
tries to change the buffer size after the actual I/O has
