Conveys one data link service data unit (DLSDU) from the data link service (DLS) provider to the DLS user.
The message consists of one
M_PROTO message block, which contains the following structure,
followed by one or more M_DATA blocks containing at least one byte
This structure is defined in /usr/include/sys/dlpi.h.
The DL_UNITDATA_IND primitive conveys one DLSDU from the DLS provider to the DLS user.
Note: The amount of user data that may be transferred in a single DLSDU is limited. This limit is conveyed by the dl_max_sdu parameter of the DL_INFO_ACK primitive.
|dl_primitive||Specifies the DL_UNITDATA_IND primitive.|
|dl_dest_addr_length||Specifies the length of the data link service access point (DLSAP) address of the destination DLS user. If the destination user is implemented using the Data Link Provider Interface (DLPI), the full DLSAP address is returned on the DL_BIND_ACK primitive.|
|dl_dest_addr_offset||Indicates where the destination DLSAP address begins. The value of this parameter is the offset from the beginning of the M_PROTO message block.|
|dl_src_addr_length||Specifies the length of the DLSAP address of the source DLS user.|
|dl_src_addr_offset||Indicates where the source DLSAP address begins. The value of this parameter is the offset from the beginning of the M_PROTO message block.|
|dl_group_address||Indicates the address set by the DLS provider upon receiving and passing upstream a data message when the destination address of the data message is a multicast or broadcast address.|
|Valid||The primitive is valid in the DL_IDLE state.|
|New||The resulting state is unchanged.|
This primitive is part of Base Operating System (BOS) Runtime.
