PATH_OFFLOAD_STATE_CACHED structure

[The TCP chimney offload feature is deprecated and should not be used.]

The PATH_OFFLOAD_STATE_CACHED structure contains the cached variable of a path state object.

Syntax


typedef struct _PATH_OFFLOAD_STATE_CACHED {
  OFFLOAD_STATE_HEADER Header;
  ULONG                PathMtu;
} PATH_OFFLOAD_STATE_CACHED, *PPATH_OFFLOAD_STATE_CACHED;

Members

Header

An OFFLOAD_STATE_HEADER structure. NDIS sets the Length member of Header to the size, in bytes, of the PATH_OFFLOAD_STATE_CACHED structure. The RecognizedOptions member of Header is reserved.

PathMtu

The maximum transmission unit (MTU) for the path (see RFC 1191 for IPv4, and RFC 1981 for IPv6).

Remarks

Cached variables are owned and maintained by the host stack. An offload target must not change the value of a cached variable unless requested to do so by the host stack. If the value of a cached variable changes, the host stack requests an update of the variable, which causes NDIS to call the offload target's MiniportUpdateOffload function. When the host stack terminates the offload of one or more state objects by causing NDIS to call the offload target's MiniportTerminateOffload function, the offload target does not return the value of offloaded constant variables to the host stack.

When passed to an offload target, a PATH_OFFLOAD_STATE_CACHED structure is associated with an NDIS_MINIPORT_OFFLOAD_BLOCK_LIST structure, which contains a header that is formatted as an NDIS_OBJECT_HEADER structure. The Revision member of the NDIS_OBJECT_HEADER structure, in this case, specifies the revision number of the PATH_OFFLOAD_STATE_CACHED structure.

Requirements
