Detailed Description


   

Define Documentation

 

#define GLOBUS_CALLBACK_GLOBAL_SPACE

The 'global' space handle. This is the default space handle implied if no spaces are explicitly created.  

Enumeration Type Documentation

 

enum globus_callback_space_behavior_t

Callback space behaviors describe how a space behaves. In a non-threaded build all spaces exhibit a behavior == _BEHAVIOR_SINGLE. Setting a specific behavior in this case is ignored.

In a threaded build, _BEHAVIOR_SINGLE retains all the rules and behaviors of a non-threaded build while _BEHAVIOR_THREADED makes the space act as the global space.

Setting a space's behavior to _BEHAVIOR_SINGLE guarantees that the poll protection will always be there and all callbacks are serialized and only kicked out when polled for. In a threaded build, it is still necessary to poll for callbacks in a _BEHAVIOR_SINGLE space. (globus_cond_wait() will take care of this for you also)

Setting a space's behavior to _BEHAVIOR_SERIALIZED guarantees that the poll protection will always be there and all callbacks are serialized. In a threaded build, it is NOT necessary to poll for callbacks in a _BEHAVIOR_SERIALIZED space. Callbacks in this space will be delivered as soon as possible, but only one outstanding (and unblocked) callback will be allowed at any time.

Setting a space's behavior to _BEHAVIOR_THREADED allows the user to have the poll protection provided by spaces when built non-threaded, yet, be fully threaded when built threaded (where poll protection is not needed)

Enumerator:

GLOBUS_CALLBACK_SPACE_BEHAVIOR_SINGLE
The default behavior. Indicates that you always want poll protection and single threaded behavior (callbacks need to be explicitly polled for
GLOBUS_CALLBACK_SPACE_BEHAVIOR_SERIALIZED
Indicates that you want poll protection and all callbacks to be serialized (but they do not need to be polled for in a threaded build).
GLOBUS_CALLBACK_SPACE_BEHAVIOR_THREADED
Indicates that you only want poll protection.
 

Function Documentation

 

globus_result_t globus_callback_space_init (globus_callback_space_t * space, globus_callback_space_attr_t attr)

Initialize a user space. This creates a user space.

Parameters:

space storage for the initialized space handle. This must be destroyed with globus_callback_space_destroy()
attr a space attr descibing desired behaviors. If GLOBUS_NULL, the default behavior of GLOBUS_CALLBACK_SPACE_BEHAVIOR_SINGLE is assumed. This attr is copied into the space, so it is acceptable to destroy the attr as soon as it is no longer needed

Returns:

GLOBUS_CALLBACK_ERROR_INVALID_ARGUMENT on NULL space
GLOBUS_CALLBACK_ERROR_MEMORY_ALLOC
GLOBUS_SUCCESS

See also:

globus_condattr_setspace()


 

 

globus_result_t globus_callback_space_reference (globus_callback_space_t space)

Take a reference to a space. A library which has been 'given' a space to provide callbacks on would use this to take a reference on the user's space. This prevents mayhem should a user destroy a space before the library is done with it. This reference should be destroyed with globus_callback_space_destroy() (think dup())

Parameters:

space space to reference

Returns:

GLOBUS_CALLBACK_ERROR_INVALID_SPACE
GLOBUS_SUCCESS

 

globus_result_t globus_callback_space_destroy (globus_callback_space_t space)

Destroy a reference to a user space. This will destroy a reference to a previously initialized space. Space will not actually be destroyed until all callbacks registered with this space have been run and unregistered (if the user has a handle to that callback) AND all references (from globus_callback_space_reference()) have been destroyed.

Parameters:

space space to destroy, previously initialized by globus_callback_space_init() or referenced with globus_callback_space_reference()

Returns:

GLOBUS_CALLBACK_ERROR_INVALID_SPACE
GLOBUS_SUCCESS

See also:

globus_callback_space_init()

globus_callback_space_reference()

 

globus_result_t globus_callback_space_attr_init (globus_callback_space_attr_t * attr)

Initialize a space attr. Currently, the only attr to set is the behavior. The default behavior associated with this attr is GLOBUS_CALLBACK_SPACE_BEHAVIOR_SINGLE

Parameters:

attr storage for the intialized attr. Must be destroyed with globus_callback_space_attr_destroy()

Returns:

GLOBUS_CALLBACK_ERROR_INVALID_ARGUMENT on NULL attr
GLOBUS_CALLBACK_ERROR_MEMORY_ALLOC
GLOBUS_SUCCESS

 

globus_result_t globus_callback_space_attr_destroy (globus_callback_space_attr_t attr)

Destroy a space attr. Parameters:

attr attr to destroy, previously initialized with globus_callback_space_attr_init()

Returns:

GLOBUS_CALLBACK_ERROR_INVALID_ARGUMENT on NULL attr
GLOBUS_SUCCESS

See also:

globus_callback_space_attr_init()

 

globus_result_t globus_callback_space_attr_set_behavior (globus_callback_space_attr_t attr, globus_callback_space_behavior_t behavior)

Set the behavior of a space. Parameters:

attr attr to associate behavior with
behavior desired behavior

Returns:

GLOBUS_CALLBACK_ERROR_INVALID_ARGUMENT
GLOBUS_SUCCESS

See also:

globus_callback_space_behavior_t

 

globus_result_t globus_callback_space_attr_get_behavior (globus_callback_space_attr_t attr, globus_callback_space_behavior_t * behavior)

Get the behavior associated with an attr. Note: for a non-threaded build, this will always pass back a behavior == GLOBUS_CALLBACK_SPACE_BEHAVIOR_SINGLE.

Parameters:

attr attr on which to query behavior
behavior storage for the behavior

Returns:

GLOBUS_CALLBACK_ERROR_INVALID_ARGUMENT
GLOBUS_SUCCESS

 

globus_result_t globus_callback_space_get (globus_callback_space_t * space)

Retrieve the space of a currently running callback. Parameters:

space storage for the handle to the space currently running

Returns:

GLOBUS_CALLBACK_ERROR_INVALID_ARGUMENT on NULL space
GLOBUS_CALLBACK_ERROR_NO_ACTIVE_CALLBACK
GLOBUS_SUCCESS

 

int globus_callback_space_get_depth (globus_callback_space_t space)

Retrieve the current nesting level of a space. Parameters:

space The space to query.

Returns:

the current nesting level
-1 on invalid space

 

globus_bool_t globus_callback_space_is_single (globus_callback_space_t space)

See if the specified space is a single threaded behavior space. Parameters:

space the space to query

Returns:

GLOBUS_TRUE if space's behavior is _BEHAVIOR_SINGLE
GLOBUS_FALSE otherwise
