TSAction TSContScheduleOnThread(TSCont contp, TSHRTime timeout, TSEventThread ethread)¶
Schedules contp to run timeout milliseconds in the future, on the thread specified by
ethread. The timeout is an approximation, meaning it will be at least timeout
milliseconds but possibly more. Resolutions finer than roughly 5 milliseconds will not be effective.
Note that contp is required to have a mutex, which is provided to
The return value can be used to cancel the scheduled event via
TSActionCancel(). This is
effective until the continuation contp is being dispatched. However, if it is scheduled on
another thread this can be problematic to be correctly timed. The return value can be checked with
TSActionDone() to see if the continuation ran before the return, which is possible if
timeout is 0.
If contp has no thread affinity set, the thread it is now scheduled on will be set as its thread affinity thread.
Note that the TSContSchedule() family of API shall only be called from an ATS EThread. Calling it from raw non-EThreads can result in unpredictable behavior.
