.SH NAME
.P
cmap_dispatch \- Dispatches callbacks from the CMAP service

.SH SYNOPSIS
.P
\fB#include <corosync/cmap.h>\fR

.P
\fBcs_error_t
cmap_dispatch (cmap_handle_t \fIhandle\fB, cs_dispatch_flags_t \fIdispatch_types\fB);\fR

.SH DESCRIPTION
The
.B cmap_dispatch
function is used to dispatch configuration changes.
.PP
Each application may have several connections to the CMAP API. Each application
uses the
.I handle
argument to uniquely identify the connection.
.PP
The
.I dispatch_types
argument is used to identify the type of dispatch to execute. The possible types are
CS_DISPATCH_ONE, CS_DISPATCH_ALL and CS_DISPATCH_BLOCKING.

The dispatch values have the following meanings:
.TP
.B CS_DISPATCH_ONE
Dispatch at least one callback, blocking until the callback is dispatched.
.TP
.B CS_DISPATCH_ALL
Dispatch all waiting callbacks without blocking to wait for any callbacks.
.TP
.B CS_DISPATCH_BLOCKING
Dispatch all callbacks blocking indefinitely. This is used in a threaded
program where a thread is created, and then cs_dispatch() is called immediately
from the created thread to execute callbacks.
.TP
.B CS_DISPATCH_ONE_NONBLOCKING
Dispatch at most one callback. If there is no pending callback,
CS_ERR_TRY_AGAIN is returned.
.PP
It's needed to call
.B cmap_track_add(3)
to add tracked items and receive callbacks.

.SH RETURN VALUE
.P
This call returns the CS_OK value if successful, otherwise an error is returned.

.SH "SEE ALSO"
.BR cmap_track_add (3),
.BR cmap_track_delete (3),
.BR cmap_overview (8)
