Function Documentation

int rte_eal_alarm_set ( uint64_t  us,
rte_eal_alarm_callback  cb,
void *  cb_arg 

Function to set a callback to be triggered when us microseconds have expired. Accuracy of timing to the microsecond is not guaranteed. The alarm function will not be called before the requested time, but may be called a short period of time afterwards. The alarm handler will be called only once. There is no need to call "rte_eal_alarm_cancel" from within the callback function.

usThe time in microseconds before the callback is called
cbThe function to be called when the alarm expires
cb_argPointer parameter to be passed to the callback function
On success, zero. On failure, a negative error number
int rte_eal_alarm_cancel ( rte_eal_alarm_callback  cb_fn,
void *  cb_arg 

Function to cancel an alarm callback which has been registered before. If used outside alarm callback it wait for all callbacks to finish execution.

cb_fnalarm callback
cb_argPointer parameter to be passed to the callback function. To remove all copies of a given callback function, irrespective of parameter, (void *)-1 can be used here.
  • value greater than 0 and rte_errno not changed - returned value is the number of canceled alarm callback functions
  • value greater or equal 0 and rte_errno set to EINPROGRESS, at least one alarm could not be canceled because cancellation was requested from alarm callback context. Returned value is the number of succesfuly canceled alarm callbacks
  • 0 and rte_errno set to ENOENT - no alarm found
  • -1 and rte_errno set to EINVAL - invalid parameter (NULL callback)
