cpg_initialize: Create a new connection to the CPG service


cpg_initialize - Create a new connection to the CPG service


#include <corosync/cpg.h>

int cpg_initialize(cpg_handle_t *handle, cpg_callbacks_t *callbacks);


The cpg_initialize function is used to initialize a connection to the closed process groups API. This function is deprecated and cpg_model_initialize should be used in newly written code.

Each application may have several connections to the CPG API. Each application uses the handle argument to uniquely identify the connection. The handle argument is then used in other function calls to identify the connection to be used for communication with the CPG service.

Every time an CPG event occurs within the joined group, one of the callbacks specified by the argument callbacks is called. The callback functions are described by the following type definitions:

typedef void (*cpg_deliver_fn_t) (
        cpg_handle_t handle,
        const struct cpg_name *group_name,
        uint32_t nodeid,
        uint32_t pid,
        const void *msg,
        size_t msg_len);

typedef void (*cpg_confchg_fn_t) (
        cpg_handle_t handle,
        const struct cpg_name *group_name,
        const struct cpg_address *member_list, size_t member_list_entries,
        const struct cpg_address *left_list, size_t left_list_entries,
        const struct cpg_address *joined_list, size_t joined_list_entries);

The callbacks argument is of the type:

typedef struct {
        cpg_deliver_fn_t cpg_deliver_fn;
        cpg_confchg_fn_t cpg_confchg_fn;
} cpg_callbacks_t;

When a configuration change occurs or a message is to be delivered one of the callbacks is called from the cpg_dispatch() function. If a configuration change occurs, cpg_confchg_fn is called. If a delivery of a message occurs, cpg_deliver_fn is called.

The cpg_address structure is defined

struct cpg_address {
        unsigned int nodeid;
        unsigned int pid;
        unsigned int reason;

where nodeid is a 32 bit unique node identifier, pid is the process ID of the process that has joined/left the group or sent the message, and reason is an integer code indicating why the node joined/left the group.

CPG_REASON_JOIN     - the process joined a group using cpg_join().
CPG_REASON_LEAVE    - the process left a group using cpg_leave()
CPG_REASON_NODEDOWN - the process left a group because the node left the cluster.
CPG_REASON_NODEUP   - the process joined a group because it was already a member of a group on a node that has just joined the cluster
CPG_REASON_PROCDOWN - the process left a group without calling cpg_leave()


This call returns the CS_OK value if successful, otherwise an error is returned.


The errors are undocumented.
