FltQueueGenericWorkItem function

FltQueueGenericWorkItem posts a work item that is not associated with a specific I/O operation to a work queue.

Syntax

NTSTATUS FLTAPI FltQueueGenericWorkItem(
  PFLT_GENERIC_WORKITEM         FltWorkItem,
  PVOID                         FltObject,
  PFLT_GENERIC_WORKITEM_ROUTINE WorkerRoutine,
  WORK_QUEUE_TYPE               QueueType,
  PVOID                         Context
);

Parameters

FltWorkItem

Pointer to the work item to be added to the work queue. The work item must have been allocated by calling FltAllocateGenericWorkItem.

FltObject

Opaque filter (PFLT_FILTER) or instance (PFLT_INSTANCE) pointer for the caller.

WorkerRoutine

Pointer to a caller-supplied worker routine. This routine is declared as follows:

typedef VOID
(*PFLT_GENERIC_WORKITEM_ROUTINE) (
 _In_ PFLT_GENERIC_WORKITEM FltWorkItem,
 _In_ PVOID FltObject,
 _In_opt_ PVOID Context
      );

FltWorkItem

Opaque pointer to a generic work item structure.

FltObject

Opaque filter pointer that was passed as the FltObject parameter of FltQueueGenericWorkItem.

Context

Context information pointer that was passed as the Context parameter of FltQueueGenericWorkItem. This parameter is optional.

QueueType

Specifies the queue into which the work item that FltWorkItem points to is to be inserted. QueueType can be either of the following:

Value Meaning
CriticalWorkQueue Insert the work item into the queue from which a system thread with a real-time priority attribute processes the work item.
DelayedWorkQueue Insert the work item into the queue from which a system thread with a variable priority attribute processes the work item.

The QueueType value HyperCriticalWorkQueue is reserved for system use.

Context

Pointer to caller-defined context information to be passed as the Context parameter of the callback routine specified in the WorkerRoutine parameter. This parameter is optional.

Return Value

FltQueueGenericWorkItem returns STATUS_SUCCESS or an appropriate NTSTATUS value such as one of the following:

Return code Description
STATUS_FLT_DELETING_OBJECT
The minifilter driver is being unloaded. This is an error code.

Remarks

FltQueueGenericWorkItem inserts a work item that is not associated with a specific I/O operation into a system work queue. The specified WorkerRoutine callback routine is called in the context of a system thread, at IRQL PASSIVE_LEVEL.

To allocate a work item, call FltAllocateGenericWorkItem.

To free the work item when it is no longer needed, call FltFreeGenericWorkItem.

Requirements

   
Target Platform Universal
Header fltkernel.h (include Fltkernel.h)
Library FltMgr.lib
DLL Fltmgr.sys
