ClfsReadNextLogRecord routine

The ClfsReadNextLogRecord routine reads the next record in a sequence, relative to the current record in a read context.


NTSTATUS ClfsReadNextLogRecord(
  _Inout_   PVOID pvReadContext,
  _Out_     PVOID *ppvBuffer,
  _Out_     PULONG pcbBuffer,
  _Inout_   PCLFS_RECORD_TYPE peRecordType,
  _In_opt_  PCLFS_LSN plsnUser,
  _Out_     PCLFS_LSN plsnUndoNext,
  _Out_     PCLFS_LSN plsnPrevious,
  _Out_     PCLFS_LSN plsnRecord


pvReadContext [in, out]

A pointer to a read context that the caller previously obtained by calling ClfsReadLogRecord or ClfsReadRestartArea.

ppvBuffer [out]

A pointer to a variable that receives a pointer to a buffer that contains the record data.

pcbBuffer [out]

A pointer to a ULONG-typed variable that receives the size, in bytes, of the buffer pointed to by *ppvBuffer. This is the length of the data buffer of the record read.

peRecordType [in, out]

A pointer to a variable of type CLFS_RECORD_TYPE. The caller must set this parameter to one of the following values.

ValueRecord that will be read


The next data record.


The next restart record.


The next record that is either a data record or a restart record.


plsnUser [in, optional]

A pointer to a CLFS_LSN structure that supplies the LSN of the record to be read. The specified record is read instead of the record that would have been read according to the mode (ClfsContextUndoNext, ClfsContextPrevious, or ClfsContextForward) of the read context (pvReadContext). The LSN supplied in plsnUser must be less than the current LSN of the read context. This parameter can be NULL.

plsnUndoNext [out]

A pointer to a CLFS_LSN structure that receives the undo-next LSN of the record that is read.

plsnPrevious [out]

A pointer to a CLFS_LSN structure that receives the previous LSN of the record that was read.

plsnRecord [out]

A pointer to a CLFS_LSN structure that receives the LSN of the record that was read.

Return value

ClfsReadNextLogRecord returns STATUS_SUCCESS if it succeeds; otherwise, it returns one of the error codes defined in Ntstatus.h.

Read contexts are not thread-safe. Clients are responsible for serializing access to read contexts.
