- for me RPC means you have callable functions which are performed remotely.
You have them in the header. It's much more readable for me than a free text
or a byte hunting code :)
- async: functions return immediately without result (except on transport
error) - this header doesn't tell too much about it, but doesn't exclude it.
I go back to the school if I'm wrong:)
Additionally I visioned some modularity about transport layer in this header
(TCP/IP, unix domain socket, HW accelerated transport). You recognized well I
misunderstood something in this, e.g. I've missed a hook func from there (I
haven't thought first it's also single threaded) callable from the main event
For me it's also unclear which RPCs are performed where (DMASTER, LMASTER,
I couldn't figure out also which functionality (DMASTER, LMASTER, ltdb) takes
place where (in which process). Could you please enumerate? (e.g.
DMASTER/LMASTER logic is in the dispatcher(?), ltdb is a separate process(?)
-or not-, smbd & dispatcher are ok.)
Thank you in advance.
