ZMQ_IPC

Section: 0MQ Manual (7)
Updated: 10/14/2014

NAME

zmq_ipc - 0MQ local inter-process communication transport  

SYNOPSIS

The inter-process transport passes messages between local processes using a system-dependent IPC mechanism.


Note

The inter-process transport is currently only implemented on operating systems that provide UNIX domain sockets.

 

ADDRESSING

A 0MQ endpoint is a string consisting of a transport:// followed by an address. The transport specifies the underlying protocol to use. The address specifies the transport-specific address to connect to.

For the inter-process transport, the transport is ipc, and the meaning of the address part is defined below.  

Binding a socket

When binding a socket to a local address using zmq_bind() with the ipc transport, the endpoint shall be interpreted as an arbitrary string identifying the pathname to create. The pathname must be unique within the operating system namespace used by the ipc implementation, and must fulfill any restrictions placed by the operating system on the format and length of a pathname.

When the address is *, zmq_bind() shall generate a unique temporary pathname. The caller should retrieve this pathname using the ZMQ_LAST_ENDPOINT socket option. See zmq_getsockopt(3) for details.


Note

any existing binding to the same endpoint shall be overridden. That is, if a second process binds to an endpoint already bound by a process, this will succeed and the first process will lose its binding. In this behavior, the ipc transport is not consistent with the tcp or inproc transports.


Note

the endpoint pathname must be writable by the process. When the endpoint starts with /, e.g., ipc:///pathname, this will be an absolute pathname. If the endpoint specifies a directory that does not exist, the bind shall fail.


Note

on Linux only, when the endpoint pathname starts with @, the abstract namespace shall be used. The abstract namespace is independent of the filesystem and if a process attempts to bind an endpoint already bound by a process, it will fail. See unix(7) for details.

 

Connecting a socket

When connecting a socket to a peer address using zmq_connect() with the ipc transport, the endpoint shall be interpreted as an arbitrary string identifying the pathname to connect to. The pathname must have been previously created within the operating system namespace by assigning it to a socket with zmq_bind().  

EXAMPLES

Assigning a local address to a socket.

//  Assign the pathname "/tmp/feeds/0"
rc = zmq_bind(socket, "ipc:///tmp/feeds/0");
assert (rc == 0);

Connecting a socket.

//  Connect to the pathname "/tmp/feeds/0"
rc = zmq_connect(socket, "ipc:///tmp/feeds/0");
assert (rc == 0);
