aiocoap.util.asyncio.recvmsg module

class aiocoap.util.asyncio.recvmsg.RecvmsgDatagramProtocol

Bases: asyncio.protocols.BaseProtocol

Callback interface similar to asyncio.DatagramProtocol, but dealing with recvmsg data.

datagram_msg_received(data, ancdata, flags, address)

Called when some datagram is received.

datagram_errqueue_received(data, ancdata, flags, address)

Called when some data is received from the error queue


Called when a send or receive operation raises an OSError.

class aiocoap.util.asyncio.recvmsg.RecvmsgSelectorDatagramTransport(loop, sock, protocol, waiter)

Bases: asyncio.transports.BaseTransport

A simple loop-independent transport that largely mimicks DatagramTransport but interfaces a RecvmsgSelectorDatagramProtocol.

This does not implement any flow control, based on the assumption that it’s not needed, for CoAP has its own flow control mechanisms.

max_size = 4096

Close the transport.

Buffered data will be flushed asynchronously. No more data will be received. After all buffered data is flushed, the protocol’s connection_lost() method will (eventually) called with None as its argument.

sendmsg(data, ancdata, flags, address)
aiocoap.util.asyncio.recvmsg.create_recvmsg_datagram_endpoint(loop, factory, sock)

Create a datagram connection that uses recvmsg rather than recvfrom, and a RecvmsgDatagramProtocol protocol type.

This is used like the create_datagram_endpoint method of an asyncio loop, but implemented in a generic way using the loop’s add_reader method; thus, it’s not a method of the loop but an independent function.

Due to the way it is used in aiocoap, socket is not an optional argument here; it could be were this module ever split off into a standalone package.
