comedi_get_hardware_buffer_size — get size of subdevice's hardware buffer
|unsigned int subdevice,|
|enum comedi_io_direction direction|
This function returns the number of bytes the subdevice can hold in it's hardware buffer.
The term “hardware buffer” refers to any FIFOs, etc. on the acquisition board itself which
are used during streaming commands. This does not include the buffer maintained by
the comedi kernel module in host memory, whose size may be queried by
direction parameter of type
should be set to
COMEDI_INPUT to query the input buffer size (e.g., the buffer of an analog
input subdevice), or
COMEDI_OUTPUT to query the output buffer size (e.g., the buffer of
an analog output).
