IHostTaskManager::BeginThreadAffinity Method

Notifies the host that managed code is entering a period in which the current task must not be moved to another operating system thread.

HRESULT BeginThreadAffinity ();

HRESULT

Description

S_OK

BeginThreadAffinity returned successfully.

HOST_E_CLRNOTAVAILABLE

The common language runtime (CLR) has not been loaded into a process, or the CLR is in a state in which it cannot run managed code or process the call successfully.

HOST_E_TIMEOUT

The call timed out.

HOST_E_NOT_OWNER

The caller does not own the lock.

HOST_E_ABANDONED

An event was canceled while a blocked thread or fiber was waiting on it.

E_FAIL

An unknown catastrophic failure occurred. When a method returns E_FAIL, the CLR is no longer usable within the process. Subsequent calls to hosting methods return HOST_E_CLRNOTAVAILABLE.

The CLR typically calls IHostTaskManager::BeginThreadAffinity in the context of a call to Thread.BeginThreadAffinity. The current task must not be rescheduled until a corresponding call is made to IHostTaskManager::EndThreadAffinity. Tasks can be switched out, but when they are switched back in, they must be assigned to the same operating system thread from which they were switched out. Nested calls to BeginThreadAffinity have no effect, because the call refers to the current task.
