Abstract:
In this document, we present a description of IBP version 1.0 API. The current implementation of IBP supports only synchronized client requests; all client IBP calls will block pending completion on the server(s) side, or the expiration of the client's timeout. We present the C-language prototype of every call along with a detailed description of the data structures, success behavior and error conditions involved in that call. Failure of an IBP client call is indicated by a return value of 0 or NULL, with a special variable (IBP_errno) set to the appropriate error code.
