Note   NDIS 5. x has been deprecated and is superseded by NDIS 6. x. For new NDIS driver development, see Network Drivers Starting with Windows Vista. For information about porting NDIS 5. x drivers to NDIS 6. x, see Porting NDIS 5.x Drivers to NDIS 6.0.

NdisFreeBufferPool releases a handle obtained in a preceding call to NdisAllocateBufferPool.

Syntax


VOID NdisFreeBufferPool(
  _In_  NDIS_HANDLE PoolHandle
);

Parameters

PoolHandle [in]

Specifies the handle returned when the driver called NdisAllocateBufferPool. The pool handle is no longer valid after this function returns.

Return value

None

Remarks

Before calling NdisFreeBufferPool, the driver must call NdisFreeBuffer as many times as necessary to release all buffer descriptors that were allocated with NdisAllocateBuffer but not yet released. Otherwise, the call to NdisFreeBufferPool causes a memory leak.

Requirements

Version

Not supported for NDIS 6.0 drivers in Windows Vista. Supported for NDIS 5.1 drivers in Windows Vista and Windows XP.

Header
