NAME

rsm_memseg_import_set_mode, rsm_memseg_import_get_mode - set or get mode for barrier scoping  

SYNOPSIS

cc [ flag... ] file... -lrsm [ library... ]
#include <rsmapi.h> 

int rsm_memseg_import_set_mode(rsm_memseg_import_handle_t memseg, rsm_barrier_mode_t mode);

int rsm_memseg_import_get_mode(rsm_memseg_import_handle_t memseg, rsm_barrier_mode_t *mode);  

DESCRIPTION

The rsm_memseg_import_set_mode() function provides support for optional explicit barrier scoping in the functions described on the rsm_memseg_import_get(3RSM) and rsm_memseg_import_put(3RSM) manual pages.. The two valid barrier modes are RSM_BARRIER_MODE_EXPLICIT and RSM_BARRIER_MODE_IMPLICIT. By default, the barrier mode is set to RSM_BARRIER_MODE_IMPLICIT. When the mode is RSM_BARRIER_MODE_IMPLICIT, an implicit barrier open and barrier close is applied to the put operation. Irrespective of the mode set, the barrier must be initialized using the rsm_memseg_import_init_barrier(3RSM) function before any barrier operations, either implicit or explicit, are used.

The rsm_memseg_import_get_mode() function obtains the current value of the mode used for barrier scoping in put functions.  

RETURN VALUES

Upon successful completion, these functions return 0. Otherwise, an error value is returned to indicate the error.  

ERRORS

The rsm_memseg_import_set_mode() and rsm_memseg_import_get_mode() functions can return the following errors:

RSMERR_BAD_SEG_HNDL Invalid segment handle.
