NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       rapi_session  -  Create  an  Resource ReSerVation Protocol
       (RSVP) API session

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       #include <rapi.h>

       rapi_sid_t rapi_session(
               rapi_addr_t *Dest,
               int Protid,
               unsigned int flags,
               rapi_event_return_t *Event_rtn,
               void *Event_arg,
               int *errnop );

LIBRARY    [Toc]    [Back]

       RAPI Library (librsvp.so, librsvp.a)

PARAMETERS    [Toc]    [Back]

       Points to a rapi_addr_t structure that contains the destination
  IP address (IPv4 or IPv6) and port number to which
       data is sent. The  Dest  and  Protid  parameters  together
       define  an  RSVP session.  If the Protid specifies the UDP
       or TCP transport, the port corresponds to the  appropriate
       transport  port  number. See RSVP(7) for the format of the
       rapi_addr_t structure.  Specifies the IP protocol  identifier
  for  the  session. If you do not set this parameter,
       the API defaults to the UDP protocol (value  17).   Specifies
  one  of  the following flags: If this option is set,
       this indicates that IntServ formats are used  on  upcalls;
       otherwise,  Simplified formats are used. See RSVP(7) for a
       description of RAPI objects and  formats.   Points  to  an
       upcall  routine  that is invoked to notify the application
       of RSVP errors and state  change  events.  Pending  events
       cause  the  invocation of the upcall function.  If no such
       upcall routine exists, set  the  parameter  to  NULL.  See
       rapi_event_rtn_t(3)  for  more  information.  Points to an
       argument to be passed to the upcall  routine  when  it  is
       invoked.  This  is  an  optional  parameter.  Points to an
       integer into  which  a  RSVP  API  (RAPI)  error  code  is

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The rapi_session() routine creates an RSVP API session.

       If  the  call  to rapi_session() succeeds, the application
       might receive upcalls of type RAPI_PATH_EVENT for the  API

NOTES    [Toc]    [Back]

       An  application  can have multiple API sessions registered
       for the same RSVP session or different  RSVP  sessions  at
       the  same  time. Each API session can have only one sender
       associated with it. Therefore, in order to announce multiple
  senders for a given RSVP session, an application must
       announce each sender in a separate API session.

       If two API sessions for the same RSVP session are  receiving
  data, they are assumed to have joined the same multicast
 group and will receive the same data packets. At present,
  if  two  or  more  such sessions issue calls to the
       rapi_reserve() routine, their reservation parameters  must
       agree  or unpredictable results occur; reservation parameter
 conflicts are not checked.

RETURN VALUES    [Toc]    [Back]

       Upon successful  completion,  the  rapi_session()  routine
       returns  a  non-zero  session handle for use in subsequent
       calls related to this RSVP API session.

       Upon failure, it returns a session handle with a value  of
       zero  (RAPI_NULL_SID) and sets an integer variable pointed
       to by errnop to an RAPI error code.

SEE ALSO    [Toc]    [Back]

       Functions:     rapi_dispatch(3),      rapi_event_rtn_t(3),
       rapi_getfd(3),      rapi_release(3),      rapi_reserve(3),
       rapi_sender(3), rapi_strerror(3), rapi_version(3).

       Network: RSVP(7).
