OMI - Complex Locks

1995 Version of ANSI (Equivalent to Current ISO Version) of Standard

Right Hand Pointer

4.3.4 Complex locks

A client may lock a list of nrefs that lie on different OMI nodes. The lock operation is atomic – it shall succeed only if all nrefs in the list are successfully claimed. This property, combined with the isolated transactions between the agent and its servers, requires the agent to assemble a complex lock from OMI lock requests to the respective servers.

The agent shall claim all nrefs of a complex lock. If all the claims succeed, then the entire lock succeeds. Otherwise, the agent shall release its successful claims and repeat the procedure until the lock succeeds or times out.

Note – To facilitate this procedure, the protocol defines a request to unlock all nrefs held by a client on one server.
