IRecordSequence.BeginWriteRestartArea Method (ArraySegment<Byte>, SequenceNumber, ReservationCollection, AsyncCallback, Object)


The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on to see the new experience.

When overridden in a derived class, begins an asynchronous restart area write operation, using space previously reserved in the sequence.

Namespace:   System.IO.Log
Assembly:  System.IO.Log (in System.IO.Log.dll)

IAsyncResult BeginWriteRestartArea(
	ArraySegment<byte> data,
	SequenceNumber newBaseSequenceNumber,
	ReservationCollection reservation,
	AsyncCallback callback,
	object state


Type: System.ArraySegment<Byte>

A list of byte array segments that will be concatenated and appended as the record.

Type: System.IO.Log.SequenceNumber

The new base sequence number. The specified sequence number must be greater than or equal to the current base sequence number.

Type: System.IO.Log.ReservationCollection

A ReservationCollection that contains the reservation that should be used for this restart area.

Type: System.AsyncCallback

An optional asynchronous callback, to be called when the restart area write is complete.

Type: System.Object

A user-provided object that distinguishes this particular asynchronous restart area write request from other requests.

Return Value

Type: System.IAsyncResult

An IAsyncResult that represents the asynchronous restart area write operation, which could still be pending.

You should pass the IAsyncResult returned by this method to the EndWriteRestartArea method, to assure that the restart area write operation has completed and resources can be freed appropriately. If an error has occurred during an asynchronous restart area write operation, an exception is not thrown until the EndWriteRestartArea method is called with the IAsyncResult returned by this method.

Data contained in the data parameter will be concatenated into a single byte array for appending as the record. However, no provision is made for splitting data back into array segments when the record is read.

When the operation successfully completes, the base sequence number has been updated. All log records with sequence numbers less than the new base sequence number are inaccessible.

If a ReservationCollection is specified, the written restart area will consume space that has been previously reserved, using a reservation contained in the collection. If the method succeeds, it will consume the smallest reservation that can hold the data, and that reservation will be removed from the collection.

If a record sequence has been disposed of, or if you pass an invalid argument, exceptions are thrown immediately within this operation. Errors that occurred during an asynchronous append request, for example, a disk failure during the I/O request, will result in exceptions being thrown when the EndWriteRestartArea method is called.
