NAME

nbd_aio_block_status - send block status command to the NBD server

SYNOPSIS

 #include <libnbd.h>

 typedef struct {
   int (*callback) (void *user_data,
                    const char *metacontext,
                    uint64_t offset, uint32_t *entries,
                    size_t nr_entries, int *error);
   void *user_data;
   void (*free) (void *user_data);
 } nbd_extent_callback;

 typedef struct {
   int (*callback) (void *user_data, int *error);
   void *user_data;
   void (*free) (void *user_data);
 } nbd_completion_callback;

 int64_t nbd_aio_block_status (struct nbd_handle *h,
                               uint64_t count,
                               uint64_t offset,
                               nbd_extent_callback extent_callback,
                               nbd_completion_callback completion_callback,
                               uint32_t flags);

DESCRIPTION

Send the block status command to the NBD server.

To check if the command completed, call nbd_aio_command_completed(3). Or supply the optional completion_callback which will be invoked as described in "Completion callbacks" in libnbd(3).

Other parameters behave as documented in nbd_block_status(3).

RETURN VALUE

This call returns the 64 bit cookie of the command. The cookie is ≥ 1. Cookies are unique (per libnbd handle, not globally).

ERRORS

On error -1 is returned.

Refer to "ERROR HANDLING" in libnbd(3) for how to get further details of the error.

HANDLE STATE

The handle must be connected and finished handshaking with the server, otherwise this call will return an error.

VERSION

This function first appeared in libnbd 1.0.

If you need to test if this function is available at compile time check if the following macro is defined:

 #define LIBNBD_HAVE_NBD_AIO_BLOCK_STATUS 1
