NAME

nn_getsockopt - retrieve a socket option

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

#include <nanomsg/nn.h>

int nn_getsockopt (int s, int level, int option, void *optval, size_t *optvallen);

DESCRIPTION

Retrieves the value for the option. The level argument specifies the protocol level at which the option resides. For generic socket-level options use NN_SOL_SOCKET level. For socket-type-specific options use socket type for level argument (e.g. NN_SUB). For transport-specific options use ID of the transport as the level argument (e.g. NN_TCP).

The value is stored in the buffer pointed to by optval argument. Size of the buffer is specified by the optvallen argument. If the size of the option is greater than size of the buffer, the value will be silently truncated. Otherwise, the optvallen will be modified to indicate the actual length of the option.

<nanomsg/nn.h> header defines generic socket-level options (NN_SOL_SOCKET level). The options are as follows:

NN_DOMAIN

Returns the domain constant as it was passed to nn_socket().

NN_PROTOCOL

Returns the protocol constant as it was passed to nn_socket().

NN_LINGER

Specifies how long the socket should try to send pending outbound messages after nn_close() have been called, in milliseconds. Negative value means infinite linger. The type of the option is int. Default value is 1000 (1 second).

NN_SNDBUF

Size of the send buffer, in bytes. To prevent blocking for messages larger than the buffer, exactly one message may be buffered in addition to the data in the send buffer. The type of this option is int. Default value is 128kB.

NN_RCVBUF

Size of the receive buffer, in bytes. To prevent blocking for messages larger than the buffer, exactly one message may be buffered in addition to the data in the receive buffer. The type of this option is int. Default value is 128kB.

NN_RCVMAXSIZE

Maximum message size that can be received, in bytes. Negative value means that the received size is limited only by available addressable memory. The type of this option is int. Default is 1024kB.

NN_SNDTIMEO

The timeout for send operation on the socket, in milliseconds. If message cannot be sent within the specified timeout, EAGAIN error is returned. Negative value means infinite timeout. The type of the option is int. Default value is -1.

NN_RCVTIMEO

The timeout for recv operation on the socket, in milliseconds. If message cannot be received within the specified timeout, EAGAIN error is returned. Negative value means infinite timeout. The type of the option is int. Default value is -1.

NN_RECONNECT_IVL

For connection-based transports such as TCP, this option specifies how long to wait, in milliseconds, when connection is broken before trying to re-establish it. Note that actual reconnect interval may be randomised to some extent to prevent severe reconnection storms. The type of the option is int. Default value is 100 (0.1 second).

NN_RECONNECT_IVL_MAX

This option is to be used only in addition to NN_RECONNECT_IVL option. It specifies maximum reconnection interval. On each reconnect attempt, the previous interval is doubled until NN_RECONNECT_IVL_MAX is reached. Value of zero means that no exponential backoff is performed and reconnect interval is based only on NN_RECONNECT_IVL. If NN_RECONNECT_IVL_MAX is less than NN_RECONNECT_IVL, it is ignored. The type of the option is int. Default value is 0.

NN_SNDPRIO

Retrieves outbound priority currently set on the socket. This option has no effect on socket types that send messages to all the peers. However, if the socket type sends each message to a single peer (or a limited set of peers), peers with high priority take precedence over peers with low priority. The type of the option is int. Highest priority is 1, lowest priority is 16. Default value is 8.

NN_RCVPRIO

Sets inbound priority for endpoints subsequently added to the socket. This option has no effect on socket types that are not able to receive messages. When receiving a message, messages from peer with higher priority are received before messages from peer with lower priority. The type of the option is int. Highest priority is 1, lowest priority is 16. Default value is 8.

NN_IPV4ONLY

If set to 1, only IPv4 addresses are used. If set to 0, both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses are used. The type of the option is int. Default value is 1.

NN_SNDFD

Retrieves a file descriptor that is readable when a message can be sent to the socket. The descriptor should be used only for polling and never read from or written to. The type of the option is same as the type of file descriptor on the platform. That is, int on POSIX-complaint platforms and SOCKET on Windows. The descriptor becomes invalid and should not be used any more once the socket is closed. This socket option is not available for unidirectional recv-only socket types.

NN_RCVFD

Retrieves a file descriptor that is readable when a message can be received from the socket. The descriptor should be used only for polling and never read from or written to. The type of the option is same as the type of file descriptor on the platform. That is, int on POSIX-complaint platforms and SOCKET on Windows. The descriptor becomes invalid and should not be used any more once the socket is closed. This socket option is not available for unidirectional send-only socket types.

NN_SOCKET_NAME

Socket name for error reporting and statistics. The type of the option is string. Default value is "N" where N is socket integer. This option is experimental, see nn_env(7) for details

RETURN VALUE

If the function succeeds zero is returned. Otherwise, -1 is returned and errno is set to to one of the values defined below.

ERRORS

EBADF

The provided socket is invalid.

ENOPROTOOPT

The option is unknown at the level indicated.

ETERM

The library is terminating.

EXAMPLE

int linger;
size_t sz = sizeof (linger);
nn_getsockopt (s, NN_SOL_SOCKET, NN_LINGER, &linger, &sz);
