mtcp_getsockopt

NAME

mtcp_getsockopt − get options on mTCP/mOS sockets

SYNOPSIS

#include <mtcp_api.h>

int mtcp_getsockopt(mctx_t mctx, int sockid, int level, int optname, const void *optval, socklen_t *optlen);

DESCRIPTION

mtcp_getsockopt() manipulate options for the socket referred to by the sockid descriptor. These options may exist at multiple protocol levels. When manipulating socket options, the level at which the options resides and the name of the option must be specified. A user can use SOL_SOCKET level to adjust these options for mTCP endpoint applications; while SOL_MONSOCKET level can be used to adjust options for monitoring sockets.

For mtcp_getsockopt() optval identifies the buffer in which the value for the requested option is to be returned and the optlen argument is updated to indicate the actual size of the optval returned. It is the user’s responsibility to allocate memory for both optval and optlen arguments.

At the moment, mOS only provides one optname named SO_ERROR that can only be used for mtcp_getsockopt() function for SOL_SOCKET socket level with the specified option name returns the most recently recorded socket error for the particular connection (specific to the sockid socket descriptor).

SOL_MONSOCKET socket level can be used by mtcp_getsockopt() to retrieve a number of socket options.

MOS_FRAGINFO_CLIBUF

Gives back offsets to fragments (non-contiguous data segments) currently stored in client’s TCP ring buffer. The optval is an array of struct tcp_ring_fragment which is defined as:

struct tcp_ring_fragment {
uint64_t offset;
uint32_t len;
}

where offset flow data starting from client’s TCP SYN sequence number, and len is the length of the tcp_ring_fragment. The optval holds the size of the array (in terms of the number of elements).

MOS_FRAGINFO_SVRBUF

Gives back offsets to fragments (non-contiguous data segments) currently stored in server’s TCP ring buffer. The optval is the array of struct tcp_ring_fragment

where offset flow data starting from server’s TCP SYN sequence number, and len is the length of the tcp_ring_fragment. The optlen holds the size of the array (in terms of the number of elements).

MOS_INFO_CLIBUF

Returns meta-data regarding the client’s TCP ring buffer. This information is returned in the form of optval which is passed as struct tcp_buf_info.

struct tcp_buf_info {
/* The initial TCP sequence number
of TCP ring buffer. */
uint32_t tcpbi_init_seq;

/* TCP sequence number of the ’last
byte of payload that has already
been read by the end application’
(applies in the case of embedded
monitor setup) */
uint32_t tcpbi_last_byte_read;

/* TCP sequence number of the ’last
byte of the payload that is
currently buffered and needs to
be read by the end application’
(applies in the case of embedded
monitor setup). In case of standalone
monitors, tcpbi_last_byte_read =
tcpbi_next_byte_expected */
uint32_t tcpbi_next_byte_expected;

/* TCP sequence number of the ’last
byte of the payload that is
currently stored’ in the TCP
ring buffer. This value may be
greater than tcpbi_next_byte_expected
if packets arrive out of order. */
uint32_t tcpbi_last_byte_received;
}

The optlen value contains the sizeof(struct tcp_buf_info).

MOS_INFO_SVRBUF

Returns meta-data regarding the server’s TCP ring buffer. This information is returned in the form of optval which is passed as struct tcp_buf_info. The optlen value contains the sizeof(struct tcp_buf_info).

MOS_TCP_STATE_CLI

Returns the current emulated state of the client. The optval argument is a pointer to an int whereas the optlen argument contains the sizeof(int). The optval returns a value of type enum tcpstate which can carry any one of the following states.

enum tcpstate {
TCP_CLOSED = 0,
TCP_LISTEN,
TCP_SYN_SENT,
TCP_SYN_RCVD,
TCP_ESTABLISHED,
TCP_FIN_WAIT_1,
TCP_FINE_WAIT_2,
TCP_CLOSE_WAIT,
TCP_CLOSING,
TCP_LAST_ACK,
TCP_TIME_WAIT
}

MOS_TCP_STATE_SVR

Returns the current emulated state of the server. The optval argument is a pointer to an int whereas the optlen argument contains the sizeof(int). The optval returns a value of type enum tcpstate.

Both the functions take an additional argument named mctx that represent the per-core mTCP context in an application (see mtcp_create_context() for details).

RETURN VALUE

Returns 0 on success; -1 on failure. In case of failure, errno is set appropriately.

ERRORS

EACCES

mctx is not valid.

EBADF

sockid is not a valid socket descriptor.

ENOTSOCK

The socket referred to by sockid is not valid.

ENOSYS

Either the level or the optname is not implemented.

EPERM

Permission to access a socket option is denied.
