[FreeRTOS-Plus-TCP API Reference]

void * FreeRTOS_GetUDPPayloadBuffer_Multi( size_t uxRequestedSizeBytes,
                                           TickType_t uxBlockTimeTicks,
                                           uint8_t ucIPType )

Obtains a buffer from the TCP/IP stack for use with the zero copy interface. The zero copy interface for transmitting data is described on the FreeRTOS_sendto() documentation page.


The size of the buffer being requested. The size is specified in bytes.

The maximum time the calling RTOS task is prepared to wait for a buffer if one is not immediately available. If a buffer is not available then the calling RTOS task will be held in the Blocked state (so other tasks can execute) until either a buffer becomes available or the block time expires.
The block time is specified in ticks. Milliseconds can be converted to ticks by dividing the time in milliseconds by portTICK_PERIOD_MS.
To prevent deadlocks the maximum block time is capped to ipconfigMAX_SEND_BLOCK_TIME_TICKS. ipconfigMAX_SEND_BLOCK_TIME_TICKS is defined in FreeRTOSIPConfig.h

The type of buffer being requested - ipTYPE_IPv4 (0x40) or ipTYPE_IPv6 (0x60)

If a buffer was obtained then a pointer to the obtained buffer is returned. If a buffer could not be obtained then NULL is returned.

Example usage:
The FreeRTOS_sendto() documentation page contains an example zero copy send operation that includes a call to FreeRTOS_GetUDPPayloadBuffer_Multi().
