DESCRIPTION


The scf_iter_create() function creates a new iterator associated with
handle. The scf_iter_destroy() function destroys an iteration.


The scf_iter_reset() function releases any resources involved with an
active iteration and returns the iterator to its initial state.


The scf_iter_handle_scopes(), scf_iter_scope_services(),
scf_iter_service_instances(), scf_iter_instance_snapshots(),
scf_iter_service_pgs(), scf_iter_instance_pgs(),
scf_iter_snaplevel_pgs(), scf_iter_pg_properties(), and
scf_iter_property_values() functions set up a new iteration of all the
children parent of a particular type. The scf_iter_property_values()
function will iterate over values in the order in which they were
specified with scf_entry_add_value(3SCF).


The scf_iter_service_pgs_typed(), scf_iter_instance_pgs_typed(), and
scf_iter_snaplevel_pgs_typed() functions iterate over the child property
groups of parent, but restrict them to a particular property group type.


The scf_iter_instance_pgs_composed() function sets up a new iteration of
the composed view of instance's children at the time snapshot was taken.
If snapshot is NULL, the current properties are used. The composed view
of an instance's properties is the union of the properties of the
instance and its ancestors. Properties of the instance take precedence
over properties of the service with the same name, including property
group name. Property groups retrieved with this iterator might not have
instance as their parent and properties retrieved from such property
groups might not have the indicated property group as their parent. If
instance and its parent have property groups with the same name but
different types, the properties in the property group of the parent are
excluded. The scf_iter_instance_pgs_typed_composed() function behaves as
scf_iter_instance_pgs_composed(), except the property groups of the type
pgtype are returned.


The scf_iter_next_scope(), scf_iter_next_service(),
scf_iter_next_instance(), scf_iter_next_snapshot(), scf_iter_next_pg(),
scf_iter_next_property(), and scf_iter_next_value() functions retrieve
the next element of the iteration.

RETURN VALUES


Upon successful completion, scf_iter_create() returns a pointer to a new
iterator. Otherwise, it returns NULL.


Upon successful completion, scf_iter_handle() returns the handle
associated with iter. Otherwise it returns NULL.


Upon successful completion, scf_iter_handle_scopes(),
scf_iter_scope_services(), scf_iter_service_instances(),
scf_iter_instance_snapshots(), scf_iter_service_pgs(),
scf_iter_instance_pgs(), scf_iter_snaplevel_pgs(),
scf_iter_pg_properties(), scf_iter_property_values(),
scf_iter_service_pgs_typed(), scf_iter_instance_pgs_composed(),
scf_iter_instance_pgs_typed(), scf_iter_instance_pgs_typed_composed(),
and scf_iter_snaplevel_pgs_typed() return 0. Otherwise, they return -1.


Upon successful completion, scf_iter_next_scope(),
scf_iter_next_service(), scf_iter_next_instance(),
scf_iter_next_snapshot(), scf_iter_next_pg(), scf_iter_next_property(),
and scf_iter_next_value() return 1. If the iterator is complete, they
return 0. Otherwise, they return -1.

ERRORS


The scf_iter_create() function will fail if:

SCF_ERROR_NO_MEMORY
There is no memory available.


SCF_ERROR_NO_RESOURCES
The server does not have adequate resources
for a new iteration.

The handle associated with iter has been
destroyed.

EXAMPLES


Example 1: Iterate over all instances under a service.



scf_iter_t *iter = scf_iter_create(handle);

if (iter == NULL || scf_iter_service_instances(iter, parent) == -1) {
/* failure */
}
while ((r = scf_iter_next_instance(iter, child)) > 0) {
/* process child */
}
if (r < 0) {
/* failure */
}
scf_iter_destroy(iter);


Example 2: Connect to the repository, walk all services and instances and


print their FMRIs.

scf_handle_t *handle = scf_handle_create(SCF_VERSION);
scf_scope_t *scope = scf_scope_create(handle);
scf_service_t *svc = scf_service_create(handle);
scf_instance_t *inst = scf_instance_create(handle);
scf_iter_t *svc_iter = scf_iter_create(handle);
scf_iter_t *inst_iter = scf_iter_create(handle);

size_t sz = scf_limit(SCF_LIMIT_MAX_FMRI_LENGTH) + 1;
char *fmri = malloc(sz + 1);

int r;

if (handle == NULL || scope == NULL || svc == NULL ||
inst == NULL || svc_iter == NULL || inst_iter == NULL ||
fmri == NULL) {
/* failure */
}
if (scf_handle_bind(handle) == -1 ||
scf_handle_get_scope(handle, SCF_SCOPE_LOCAL, scope) == -1 ||
scf_iter_scope_services(svc_iter, scope) == -1) {
/* failure */
}
while ((r = scf_iter_next_service(svc_iter, svc)) > 0) {
if (scf_service_to_fmri(svc, fmri, sz) < 0) {
/* failure */
}
puts(fmri);
if (scf_iter_service_instances(inst_iter, svc) < 0) {
/* failure */
}
while ((r = scf_iter_next_instance(inst_iter, inst)) > 0) {
if (scf_instance_to_fmri(inst, fmri, sz) < 0) {
/* failure */
}
