NAME

       sd_bus_close, sd_bus_flush - Close and flush a bus connection

SYNOPSIS

       #include <systemd/sd-bus.h>

       void sd_bus_close(sd_bus *bus);

       int sd_bus_flush(sd_bus *bus);

DESCRIPTION

       sd_bus_close() disconnects the specified bus connection. When this call is invoked and the
       specified bus object refers to an active connection it is immediately terminated. No
       further messages may be sent or receieved on it. Any messages queued in the bus object
       (both incoming and outgoing) are released. If invoked on NULL bus object or when the bus
       connection is already closed this function executes no operation. This call does not free
       or unreference the bus object itself. Use sd_bus_unref(3) for that.

       sd_bus_flush() synchronously writes out all outgoing queued message on a bus connection if
       there are any. This function call may block if the peer is not processing bus messages
       quickly.

       Before a program exits it is usually a good idea to flush any pending messages with
       sd_bus_flush() and then close connections with sd_bus_close() to ensure that no unwritten
       messages are lost, no further messages may be queued and all incoming but unprocessed
       messages are released. After both operations have been done, it is a good idea to also
       drop any remaining references to the bus object so that it may be freed. Since these three
       operations are frequently done together a helper call sd_bus_flush_close_unref(3) is
       provided that combines them into one.

RETURN VALUE

       On success, sd_bus_flush() returns 0 or a positive integer. On failure, it returns a
       negative errno-style error code.

ERRORS

       Returned errors may indicate the following problems:

       -ECHILD
           The bus connection has been created in a different process.

NOTES

       These APIs are implemented as a shared library, which can be compiled and linked to with
       the libsystemd pkg-config(1) file.
