CPG_DISPATCH(3) Corosync Cluster Engine Programmer's Manual CPG_DISPATCH(3)


cpg_dispatch - Dispatches callbacks from the CPG service


#include <corosync/cpg.h>

int cpg_dispatch(cpg_handle_t handle, cpg_dispatch_t *dispatch_types);


The cpg_dispatch function is used to dispatch configuration changes or messages from the closed process groups API.

Each application may have several connections to the CPG API. Each application uses the handle argument to uniquely identify the connection.

The dispatch_types argument is used to identify the type of dispatch to execute. The possible types are defined by the structure:

typedef enum {

CS_DISPATCH_BLOCKING } cpg_dispatch_t;

The dispatch values have the following meanings:

Dispatch atleast one callback, blocking until the callback is dispatched.
Dispatch all waiting callbacks without blocking to wait for any callbacks.
Dispatch all callbacks, blocking indefinitely. This is used in a threaded program where a thread is created, and then cpg_dispatch() is called immediately from the created thread to execute callbacks.
Dispatch at most one callback. If there is no pending callback, CS_ERR_TRY_AGAIN is returned.


This call returns the CS_OK value if successful, otherwise an error is returned.


The errors are undocumented.
