SYNOPSIS


cc [ flag... ] file... -ldat [ library... ]
#include <dat/udat.h>

DAT_RETURN
dat_cno_wait (
IN DAT_CNO_HANDLE cno_handle,
IN DAT_TIMEOUT timeout,
OUT DAT_EVD_HANDLE *evd_handle
)


PARAMETERS


cno_handle
Handle for an instance of CNO


timeout
The duration to wait for a notification. The value
DAT_TIMEOUT_INFINITE can be used to wait indefinitely.


evd_handle
Handle for an instance of EVD


DESCRIPTION


The dat_cno_wait() function allows the Consumer to wait for notification
events from a set of Event Dispatchers all from the same Interface
Adapter. The Consumer blocks until notified or the timeout period
expires.


An Event Dispatcher that is disabled or in the "Waited" state does not
deliver notifications. A uDAPL Consumer waiting directly upon an Event
Dispatcher preempts the CNO.


The consumer can optionally specify a timeout, after which it is
unblocked even if there are no notification events. On a timeout,
evd_handle is explicitly set to a null handle.


The returned evd_handle is only a hint. Another Consumer can reap the
Event before this Consumer can get around to checking the Event
Dispatcher. Additionally, other Event Dispatchers feeding this CNO might
have been notified. The Consumer is responsible for ensuring that all
EVDs feeding this CNO are polled regardless of whether they are
identified as the immediate cause of the CNO unblocking.


All the waiters on the CNO, including the OS Wait Proxy Agent if it is
associated with the CNO, are unblocked with the NULL handle returns for
an unblocking EVD evd_handle when the IA instance is destroyed or when
all EVDs the CNO is associated with are freed.

RETURN VALUES


DAT_SUCCESS
The operation was successful.


DAT_INVALID_HANDLE
The cno_handle parameter is invalid.


DAT_QUEUE_EMPTY

DAT_INVALID_PARAMETER
One of the parameters was invalid or out of
range, a combination of parameters was invalid,
or the timeout parameter is invalid.


DAT_INTERRUPTED_CALL
The operation was interrupted by a signal.
