NAME ^

Socket::Mmsg - Perl extension for recvmmsg and sendmmsg Linux syscalls

SYNOPSIS ^

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use Socket; use Socket::Mmsg;

### Creating sending udp socket my $snd_sock; socket($snd_sock, PF_INET, SOCK_DGRAM, getprotobyname('udp'));

### Generating array of messages for sendmmsg my $msg_array = []; foreach (1..8){ push @$msg_array , [(pack_sockaddr_in('9999', INADDR_LOOPBACK)), 'Hello number:'.$_] }

### Creating receiving udp socket my $recv_sock; socket($recv_sock, PF_INET, SOCK_DGRAM, getprotobyname('udp')); bind ($recv_sock, sockaddr_in('9999', INADDR_LOOPBACK));

### Send all messages in one syscall my $snt_msg = &sendmmsg($snd_sock,$msg_array); print "Sent messages: $snt_msg\n";

### Receive all messages in one syscall my $recv_buffer = &recvmmsg($recv_sock, 8, 1000, 1); print "Recieved messages: ".scalar @$recv_buffer."\n";

### Print received messages foreach my $pkt(@$recv_buffer){ my ($port,$ip) = sockaddr_in($pkt->[0]); print $pkt->[1].' from:'.inet_ntoa($ip).':'.$port."\n"; }

DESCRIPTION ^

Socket::Mmsg - Is wrapper around two Linux-specific syscalls : recvmmsg and sendmmsg. Basically it was made for using in gather-type scripts (like snmp requests on huge number of devices), for more info you can read man pages of recvmmsg(2) and sendmmsg(2) syscalls.

FUNCTIONS

sendmmsg SOCKET, MSG_ARRAY_REF
  Send all messages from specified array reference to specified socket.
Returns number of sent messages and removes sent messages from array.
Number of sent messages is limited by UIO_MAXIOV (for linux is 1024).
Structure of array is :

$array_ref = [ [sockaddr_in(), $message_string] ... ];

recvmmsg SOCKET, NUMBER_OF_MSG, BUFFER_FOR_EACH_MSG, TIMEOUT_FLOAT
  Receive NUMBER_OF_MSG from specified SOCKET.
Return $array_ref with recieved messages in format :

$array_ref = [ [sockaddr_in(), $message_string] ... ];

Syscall is running with MSG_WAITFORONE flag.

EXPORT

c<Socket::Mmsg> exports sendmmsg and recvmmsg by default into the caller's namespace.
