AIX Version 4.3 Kernel and Subsystems Technical Reference, Volume 1

dmp_prinit Kernel Service


Initializes the remote dump protocol.


#include <sys/types.h>
#include <sys/errno.h>
#include <sys/dump.h>
void dmp_prinit 
(dmp_proto, proto_info)
int dmp_proto;
void *proto_info;


dmp_proto Identifies the protocol. The values for the dmp_proto parameter are defined in the /usr/include/sys/dump.h file.
proto_info Points to a protocol-specific structure containing information required by the system dump services. For the TCP/IP protocol, the proto_info parameter contains a pointer to the ARP table.


When a communications subsystem is configured, it makes itself known to the system dump services by calling the dmp_prinit kernel service. The dmp_prinit kernel service identifies the protocol and passes protocol-specific information, which is required for a remote dump.

Execution Environment

The dmp_prinit kernel service can be called from the process environment only.

Implementation Specifics

The dmp_prinit kernel service is part of the Base Operating System (BOS) Runtime.
