Function Documentation

◆ ub_event_get_version()

const char* ub_event_get_version ( void  )

Returns event-base type.

Could be "mini-event", "winsock-event" for the daemon compile, and will be "pluggable-event<PACKAGE_VERSION>" for libunbound.

Referenced by checkrlimits().

◆ ub_default_event_base()

struct ub_event_base* ub_default_event_base ( int  ,
time_t *  ,
struct timeval *   

Return a default event base.

In the daemon this will be the only event bases used.

Referenced by comm_base_create(), and usage().

◆ ub_libevent_get_event_base()

struct event_base* ub_libevent_get_event_base ( struct ub_event_base )

Return the libevent base underlying the given ub_event_base.

Will return NULL when the ub_event_base does not have an underlying libevent event base

References ub_event_base::vmt.

Referenced by ub_ctx_set_event(), and ub_get_event_sys().

◆ ub_event_base_free()

void ub_event_base_free ( struct ub_event_base )

Free event base.

Free events yourself

◆ ub_event_add()

int ub_event_add ( struct ub_event ,
struct timeval *   

◆ ub_comm_base_now()

void ub_comm_base_now ( struct comm_base cb)

Equip the comm_base with the current time.

fillup the time values in the event base

fillup the time values in the event base
