NDIS_RECEIVE_QUEUE_INFO structure

The NDIS_RECEIVE_QUEUE_INFO structure contains information about a receive queue on a network adapter.

Members

Header

The type, revision, and size of the NDIS_RECEIVE_QUEUE_INFO structure. This member is formatted as an NDIS_OBJECT_HEADER structure.

The miniport driver must set the Type member of Header to NDIS_OBJECT_TYPE_DEFAULT. To specify the version of the NDIS_RECEIVE_QUEUE_INFO structure, the driver must set the Revision member of Header to one of the following values:

NDIS_RECEIVE_QUEUE_INFO_REVISION_2

Added additional members for NDIS 6.30.

Note  Revision 2 of this structure is supported only on Windows Server 2012 and later versions of Windows Server.
 

Set the Size member to NDIS_SIZEOF_RECEIVE_QUEUE_INFO_REVISION_2.

NDIS_RECEIVE_QUEUE_INFO_REVISION_1

Original version for NDIS 6.20.

Set the Size member to NDIS_SIZEOF_RECEIVE_QUEUE_INFO_REVISION_1.

Flags

A ULONG value that contains a bitwise OR of flags. This member is reserved for NDIS.

QueueType

An NDIS_RECEIVE_QUEUE_TYPE enumeration value that specifies the type of the receive queue.

QueueId

An NDIS_RECEIVE_QUEUE_ID type value that contains a receive queue identifier. This identifier is an integer value between zero and the number of queues that the network adapter supports. A value of NDIS_DEFAULT_RECEIVE_QUEUE_ID specifies the default receive queue.

QueueGroupId

This member is reserved for NDIS.

QueueState

An NDIS_RECEIVE_QUEUE_OPERATIONAL_STATE enumeration value that specifies the operational state of the receive queue.

ProcessorAffinity

A GROUP_AFFINITY bitmap that specifies the CPU that the queue has affinity with. For example, setting bit 0 indicates that CPU 0 is used, setting bit 1 indicates that CPU 1 is used, and so on. Because a VM queue is associated with one CPU, all receive indications for the queue are handled on that processor.

NumSuggestedReceiveBuffers

A ULONG value that contains a suggested value for the number of receive buffers that the network adapter should use to support the queue. This number can be adjusted relative to the resources that the miniport driver has available or in proportion to the number that the network adapter uses for other queues. For example, the actual number of receive buffers could be double or half of this suggested value.

MSIXTableEntry

A ULONG value that contains the MSI-X table entry index for the queue.

LookaheadSize

A ULONG value for the size, in bytes, of the lookahead size requirement for this queue. A network adapter that supports lookahead in VM queues splits a received packet at an offset that is equal to or greater than the requested lookahead size and uses DMA to transfer the lookahead data and the post-lookahead data to separate shared memory segments.

Note  Starting with NDIS 6.30, splitting packet data into separate lookahead buffers is no longer supported. The value of this member must be set to zero.
 
VmName

An NDIS_VM_NAME value that contains the user-friendly description of the virtual machine.

QueueName

An NDIS_QUEUE_NAME value that contains the user-friendly description of the queue.

NumFilters

A ULONG value that specifies the number of receive filters that have been configured on the network adapter.

Note  Starting with NDIS 6.30, the miniport driver must maintain a counter for the current number of receive filters that are set on the network adapter. The driver must increment the counter each time a receive filter is set through an OID set request of OID_RECEIVE_FILTER_SET_FILTER. The driver must also decrement the counter each time a receive filter is cleared through an OID set request of OID_RECEIVE_FILTER_CLEAR_FILTER.
 
InterruptCoalescingDomainId

A ULONG value that is reserved for use by NDIS. This value is used for informational purposes by the miniport driver.

Remarks

The NDIS_RECEIVE_QUEUE_INFO structure is used with the NDIS_RECEIVE_QUEUE_INFO_ARRAY structure for the OID_RECEIVE_FILTER_ENUM_QUEUES OID that enumerates receive queues on a network adapter.

With a successful return from the OID_RECEIVE_FILTER_ENUM_QUEUES, NDIS provides an NDIS_RECEIVE_QUEUE_INFO_ARRAY structure that defines the properties of the receive queue array. Each element in the array is an NDIS_RECEIVE_QUEUE_INFO structure.

Requirements

Version

Supported in NDIS 6.20 and later.
