NAME

zmq_ctx_set - set context options

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

int zmq_ctx_set (void *context, int option_name, int option_value);

DESCRIPTION

The zmq_ctx_set() function shall set the option specified by the option_name argument to the value of the option_value argument.

The zmq_ctx_set() function accepts the following options:

    ZMQ_IO_THREADS: Set number of I/O threads

The ZMQ_IO_THREADS argument specifies the size of the 0MQ thread pool to handle I/O operations. If your application is using only the inproc transport for messaging you may set this to zero, otherwise set it to at least one. This option only applies before creating any sockets on the context.

    ZMQ_THREAD_SCHED_POLICY: Set scheduling policy for I/O threads

The ZMQ_THREAD_SCHED_POLICY argument sets the scheduling policy for internal context\(cqs thread pool. This option is not available on windows. Supported values for this option can be found in sched.h file, or at \m[blue]http://man7.org/linux/man-pages/man2/sched_setscheduler.2.html\m[]. This option only applies before creating any sockets on the context.

    ZMQ_THREAD_PRIORITY: Set scheduling priority for I/O threads

The ZMQ_THREAD_PRIORITY argument sets scheduling priority for internal context\(cqs thread pool. This option is not available on windows. Supported values for this option depend on chosen scheduling policy. Details can be found in sched.h file, or at \m[blue]http://man7.org/linux/man-pages/man2/sched_setscheduler.2.html\m[]. This option only applies before creating any sockets on the context.

    ZMQ_MAX_SOCKETS: Set maximum number of sockets

The ZMQ_MAX_SOCKETS argument sets the maximum number of sockets allowed on the context. You can query the maximal allowed value with zmq_ctx_get(3) using the ZMQ_SOCKET_LIMIT option.

    ZMQ_IPV6: Set IPv6 option

The ZMQ_IPV6 argument sets the IPv6 value for all sockets created in the context from this point onwards. A value of 1 means IPv6 is enabled, while 0 means the socket will use only IPv4. When IPv6 is enabled, a socket will connect to, or accept connections from, both IPv4 and IPv6 hosts.

RETURN VALUE

The zmq_ctx_set() function returns zero if successful. Otherwise it returns -1 and sets errno to one of the values defined below.

ERRORS

EINVAL

The requested option option_name is unknown.

EXAMPLE

Setting a limit on the number of sockets.

void *context = zmq_ctx_new ();
zmq_ctx_set (context, ZMQ_MAX_SOCKETS, 256);
int max_sockets = zmq_ctx_get (context, ZMQ_MAX_SOCKETS);
assert (max_sockets == 256);
