SYSMON_TASKQ(9)        NetBSD Kernel Developer's Manual        SYSMON_TASKQ(9)

NAME
     sysmon_taskq -- general purpose system monitoring task queue

SYNOPSIS
     #include <dev/sysmon/sysmon_taskq.h>

     void
     sysmon_task_queue_preinit(void);

     void
     sysmon_task_queue_init(void);

     void
     sysmon_task_queue_fini(void);

     int
     sysmon_task_queue_sched(u_int pri, void (*func)(void *), void *arg);

DESCRIPTION
     The machine-independent sysmon_taskq provides a simple general purpose
     task queue.  It can be used to run callbacks that require thread context,
     but do not warrant the use of a more fine-grained solution.

     Although the intended usage is related to the context of system monitor-
     ing and power management, also other comparable functions are suitable
     for sysmon_taskq.

FUNCTIONS
     The necessary internal data structures are initialized during system
     startup by sysmon_task_queue_preinit().  Before actual usage, a machine-
     dependent procedure should finish the initialization by calling
     sysmon_task_queue_init().  This will create a kernel thread that can be
     later halted by sysmon_task_queue_fini().  All scheduled tasks are exe-
     cuted before the queue is halted.

     The sysmon_task_queue_sched() enqueues func to be executed at the prior-
     ity pri.  If pri is 0, the scheduled function will be placed as the last
     element in the queue.  The single argument passed to func is specified by
     arg.

RETURN VALUES
     Upon successful completion, sysmon_task_queue_sched() returns 0.  Other-
     wise, the following error values are returned:

     [EINVAL]  An invalid parameter was specified.

     [ENOMEM]  There was not enough memory.
