Functions

virConnCopyLastError

int	virConnCopyLastError		(virConnectPtr conn,
					 virErrorPtr to)

Copy the content of the last error caught on that connection

This method is not protected against access from multiple threads. In a multi-threaded application, always use the global virGetLastError() API which is backed by thread local storage.

If the connection object was discovered to be invalid by an API call, then the error will be reported against the global error object.

Since 0.6.0, all errors reported in the per-connection object are also duplicated in the global error object. As such an application can always use virGetLastError(). This method remains for backwards compatibility.

One will need to free the result with virResetError()

conn
pointer to the hypervisor connection
to
target to receive the copy
Returns
0 if no error was found and the error code otherwise and -1 in case of parameter error.

virConnGetLastError

virErrorPtr	virConnGetLastError	(virConnectPtr conn)

Provide a pointer to the last error caught on that connection

This method is not protected against access from multiple threads. In a multi-threaded application, always use the global virGetLastError() API which is backed by thread local storage.

If the connection object was discovered to be invalid by an API call, then the error will be reported against the global error object.

Since 0.6.0, all errors reported in the per-connection object are also duplicated in the global error object. As such an application can always use virGetLastError(). This method remains for backwards compatibility.

conn
pointer to the hypervisor connection
Returns
a pointer to the last error or NULL if none occurred.

virConnResetLastError

void	virConnResetLastError		(virConnectPtr conn)

The error object is kept in thread local storage, so separate threads can safely access this concurrently.

Reset the last error caught on that connection

conn
pointer to the hypervisor connection

virConnSetErrorFunc

void	virConnSetErrorFunc		(virConnectPtr conn,
					 void * userData,
					 virErrorFunc handler)

Set a connection error handling function, if @handler is NULL it will reset to default which is to pass error back to the global library handler.

conn
pointer to the hypervisor connection
userData
pointer to the user data provided in the handler callback
handler
the function to get called in case of error or NULL

virCopyLastError

int	virCopyLastError		(virErrorPtr to)

Copy the content of the last error caught at the library level

The error object is kept in thread local storage, so separate threads can safely access this concurrently.

One will need to free the result with virResetError()

to
target to receive the copy
Returns
0 if no error was found and the error code otherwise and -1 in case of parameter error.

virDefaultErrorFunc

void	virDefaultErrorFunc		(virErrorPtr err)

Default routine reporting an error to stderr.

err
pointer to the error.

virErrorFunc

typedef void	(*virErrorFunc		)	(void * userData,
					 virErrorPtr error)

Signature of a function to use when there is an error raised by the library.

userData
user provided data for the error callback
error
the error being raised.

virFreeError

void	virFreeError			(virErrorPtr err)

Resets and frees the given error.

err
error to free

virGetLastError

virErrorPtr	virGetLastError		(void)

Provide a pointer to the last error caught at the library level

The error object is kept in thread local storage, so separate threads can safely access this concurrently.

Returns
a pointer to the last error or NULL if none occurred.

virGetLastErrorMessage

const char *	virGetLastErrorMessage	(void)

Get the most recent error message

Returns
the most recent error message string in this thread, or a generic message if none is set

virResetError

void	virResetError			(virErrorPtr err)

Reset the error being pointed to

err
pointer to the virError to clean up

virResetLastError

void	virResetLastError		(void)

Reset the last error caught at the library level.

The error object is kept in thread local storage, so separate threads can safely access this concurrently, only resetting their own error object.

virSaveLastError

virErrorPtr	virSaveLastError	(void)

Save the last error into a new error object. On success, errno is unchanged; on failure, errno is ENOMEM.

Returns
a pointer to the copied error or NULL if allocation failed. It is the caller's responsibility to free the error with virFreeError().

virSetErrorFunc

void	virSetErrorFunc			(void * userData,
					 virErrorFunc handler)

Set a library global error handling function, if @handler is NULL, it will reset to default printing on stderr. The error raised there are those for which no handler at the connection level could caught.

userData
pointer to the user data provided in the handler callback
handler
the function to get called in case of error or NULL
