Class type Rpc_transport.rpc_multiplex_controller

class type rpc_multiplex_controller = object .. end

method alive : bool
If the controller is alive, the socket is not yet completely down.
method event_system : Unixqueue.event_system
Returns the event system
method getsockname : sockaddr
The address of this socket
method getpeername : sockaddr
The address of the peer's socket. Only available if the socket is connected. (Fails otherwise.)
method protocol : Rpc.protocol
The protocol encapsulation
method peer_user_name : string option
If the transport mechanism provides a way to authenticate the peer, it can return the name here.
method reading : bool
True iff there is a reader
method read_eof : bool
Whether the EOF marker has been read
method start_reading : ?peek:(unit -> unit) ->
?before_record:(int -> sockaddr -> in_rule) ->
when_done:((in_record * sockaddr)
result_eof -> unit) ->
unit -> unit
Start reading from the connection. When a whole message has been received, the when_done callback is invoked. The in_record passed to when_done is usually `Accept m when m is the undecoded message string. For other types of in_record see the comments to before_record below.

This starts one-time read job only, i.e. it is not restarted after when_done has been invoked.

It is an error to start reading several times at once.

peek: This function is called immediately before a data chunk is read from the underlying data connection.

before_record: If passed, this function is called back whenever a fragment of data is started. The integer is the so-far known size of the message in bytes. It is guaranteed that the function is invoked once for every message fragment as long as the previous fragments were accepted, and in total at least once before when_done. The result of the last before_record call determines what is returned as in_record, e.g. a `Deny rule causes that a `Deny result is passed to when_done. Also, for `Deny and `Drop no message buffer is allocated (i.e. no memory consumption). For `Reject, only a very small buffer is allocated that only provides space for the session identifier (xid). When there is no before_record function, `Accept is passed to when_done.

method writing : bool
True iff there is a writer
method start_writing : when_done:(unit result -> unit) ->
Rpc_packer.packed_value -> sockaddr -> unit
Starts writing the message. Invoked when_done when it is written, or an error condition is reached.

This starts one-time write job only, i.e. it is not restarted after when_done has been invoked.

It is an error to start writing several times at once.

method cancel_rd_polling : unit -> unit
Cancels polling for the next input message. This method must not be called from the before_record callback function. Polling can be resumed by calling start_reading again.
method abort_rw : unit -> unit
Aborts the current reader and/or writer forever. Note that there is no clean way of resuming reading and/or writing. The readers/writers are not notified about cancellation.
method start_shutting_down : when_done:(unit result -> unit) -> unit -> unit
Start shutting down the connection. After going through the shutdown procedure, the when_done callback is invoked reporting the success or failure.

The underlying file descriptor (if any) is not closed. A shutdown is only a protocol handshake. After a shutdown,read_eof is true. Call inactivate to close the descriptor.

method cancel_shutting_down : unit -> unit
Cancels the shutdown procedure. After that, the state of the connection is undefined. The when_done callback is invoked with the `Cancelled.

It is no error if no shutdown is in progress.

method set_timeout : notify:(unit -> unit) -> float -> unit
If there is no read or write activity for the passed number of seconds, the notify callback is invoked.
method inactivate : unit -> unit
Inactivates the connection immediately, and releases any resources the controller is responsible for (e.g. closes file descriptors). Note that this is more than cancelling all pending operations and shutting the connection down. However, the details of this method are implementation-defined. Callbacks are not invoked.
