Default unblock handler


#include <sys/iofunc.h>

int iofunc_unblock_default( resmgr_context_t * ctp,
                            io_pulse_t * msg,
                            iofunc_ocb_t * ocb );


A pointer to a resmgr_context_t structure that the resource-manager library uses to pass context information between functions.
A pointer to the io_pulse_t structure that describes the pulse that the resource manager received.
A pointer to the iofunc_ocb_t structure for the Open Control Block that was created when the client opened the resource.



Use the -l c option to qcc to link against this library. This library is usually included automatically.


The iofunc_unblock_default() function calls iofunc_unblock().

The iofunc_unblock_default() function implements the functionality required when the client requests to be unblocked (e.g. a signal or timeout).

You can place this function directly into the io_funcs table passed to resmgr_attach(), at the unblock position, or you can call iofunc_func_init() to initialize all of the functions to their default values.

The unblock message is synthesized by the resource-manager shared library when a client wishes to unblock from its MsgSendv() to the resource manager. The iofunc_unblock_default() function takes care of freeing up any locks that the client may have placed on the resource.


No client connection was found.
A client connection has been unblocked.


If you're calling iofunc_lock_default(), your unblock handler should call iofunc_unblock_default():

if((status = iofunc_unblock_default(...)) != _RESMGR_DEFAULT) {
return status;

/* Do your own thing to look for a client to unblock */
