POOL_GET_POOL(3POOL) Pool Configuration Manipulation Library Functions


NAME


pool_get_pool, pool_get_resource, pool_query_components,
pool_query_pools, pool_query_resources - retrieve resource pool
configuration elements

SYNOPSIS


cc [ flag]... file... -lpool [ library... ]
#include <pool.h>

pool_t *pool_get_pool(pool_conf_t *conf, const char *name);


pool_resource_t *pool_get_resource(pool_conf_t *conf
const char *type, const char *name);


pool_component_t **pool_query_components(pool_conf_t *conf,
uint_t *nelem, pool_value_t **props);


pool_t **pool_query_pools(pool_conf_t *conf, uint_t *nelem,
pool_value_t **props);


pool_component_t **pool_query_resources(pool_conf_t *conf,
uint_t *nelem, pool_value_t **props);


DESCRIPTION


These functions provide a means for querying the contents of the
specified configuration. The conf argument for each function refers to
the target configuration to which the operation applies.


The pool_get_pool() function returns the pool with the given name from
the provided configuration.


The pool_get_resource() function returns the resource with the given name
and type from the provided configuration.


The pool_query_components() function retrieves all resource components
that match the given list of properties. If the list of properties is
NULL, all components are returned. The number of elements returned is
stored in the location pointed to by nelem. The value returned by
pool_query_components() is allocated with malloc(3C) and must be
explicitly freed.


The pool_query_pools() function behaves similarly to
pool_query_components() and returns the list of pools that match the
given list of properties. The value returned must be freed by the caller.


The pool_query_resources() function similarly returns the list of
resources that match the given list of properties. The return value must
be freed by the caller.

RETURN VALUES


The pool_get_pool() and pool_get_resource() functions return the matching
pool and resource, respectively. Otherwise, they return NULL and
pool_error(3POOL) returns the pool-specific error value.


The pool_query_components(), pool_query_pools(), and
pool_query_resources() functions return a null-terminated array of
components, pools, and resources, respectively. If the query was
unsuccessful or there were no matches, NULL is returned and pool_error()
returns the pool-specific error value.

ERRORS


The pool_get_pool() function will fail if:

POE_BADPARAM
The supplied configuration's status is not POF_VALID.


The pool_get_resource() function will fail if:

POE_BADPARAM
The supplied configuration's status is not POF_VALID.


POE_SYSTEM
There is not enough memory available to allocate working
buffers. Check errno for the specific system error code.


The pool_query_components(), pool_query_pools(), and
pool_query_resources() functions will fail if:

POE_BADPARAM
The supplied configuration's status is not POF_VALID.


POE_INVALID_CONF
The query generated results that were not of the
correct type. The configuration is invalid.


POE_SYSTEM
There is not enough memory available to allocate
working buffers. Check errno for the specific system
error code.


EXAMPLES


Example 1: Retrieve the pool named "foo" from a given configuration.



#include <pool.h>
#include <stdio.h>

...

pool_conf_t *conf;
pool_t *pool;

...

if ((pool = pool_get_pool(conf, "foo")) == NULL) {
(void) fprintf(stderr, "Cannot retrieve pool named
'foo'\n");
...
}
