Activating Continuations

Continuations are activated when they receive an event or by TSContSchedule (which schedules a continuation to receive an event). Continuations might receive an event because:

  • Your plugin calls TSContCall

  • The Traffic Server HTTP state machine sends an event corresponding to a particular HTTP hook

  • A Traffic Server IO processor (such as a cache processor or net processor) is letting a continuation know there is data (cache or network) available to read or write. These callbacks are a result of using functions such TSVConnRead/Write or TSCacheRead/Write
