unw_set_caching_policy -- set unwind caching policy
int unw_set_caching_policy(unw_addr_space_t as, unw_caching_policy_t
The unw_set_caching_policy() routine sets the caching policy of address
space as to the policy specified by argument policy. The policy
argument can take one of three possible values:
Turns off caching completely. This also implicitly flushes the
contents of all caches as if unw_flush_cache() had been called.
Enables caching using a global cache that is shared by all
threads. If global caching is unavailable or unsupported,
libunwind may fall back on using a per-thread cache, as if
UNW_CACHE_PER_THREAD had been specified.
Enables caching using thread-local caches. If a thread-local
caching are unavailable or unsupported, libunwind may fall back
on using a global cache, as if UNW_CACHE_GLOBAL had been
If caching is enabled, an application must be prepared to make
appropriate calls to unw_flush_cache() whenever the target changes in a
way that could affect the validity of cached information. For example,
after unloading (removing) a shared library, unw_flush_cache() would
have to be called (at least) for the address-range that was covered by
the shared library.
For address spaces created via unw_create_addr_space(3), caching is
turned off by default. For the local address space
unw_local_addr_space, caching is turned on by default.
On successful completion, unw_set_caching_policy() returns 0.
Otherwise the negative value of one of the error-codes below is
THREAD AND SIGNAL SAFETY
unw_set_caching_policy() is thread-safe but not safe to use from a
The desired caching policy could not be established because the
application is out of memory.
