Detailed Description

Utility class to fetch latest version of the segmented data.

SegmentFetcher assumes that the data is named /<prefix>/<version>/<segment>, where:

  • <prefix> is the specified prefix,
  • <version> is an unknown version that needs to be discovered, and
  • <segment> is a segment number (number of segments is unknown and is controlled by FinalBlockId field in at least the last Data packet

The following logic is implemented in SegmentFetcher:

  1. Express first interest to discover version:

Interest: /<prefix>?ChildSelector=1&MustBeFresh=yes

  1. Infer the latest version of Data: <version> = Data.getName().get(-2)
  2. If segment number in the retrieved packet == 0, go to step 5.
  3. Send Interest for segment 0:

Interest: /<prefix>/<version>/<segment=0>

  1. Keep sending Interests for the next segment while the retrieved Data does not have FinalBlockId or FinalBlockId != Data.getName().get(-1).

Interest: /<prefix>/<version>/<segment=(N+1))>

  1. Fire onCompletion callback with memory block that combines content part from all segmented objects.

If an error occurs during the fetching process, an error callback is fired with a proper error code. The following errors are possible:

  • INTEREST_TIMEOUT: if any of the Interests times out
  • DATA_HAS_NO_SEGMENT: if any of the retrieved Data packets don't have segment as a last component of the name (not counting implicit digest)
  • SEGMENT_VERIFICATION_FAIL: if any retrieved segment fails user-provided validation

In order to validate individual segments, an VerifySegment callback needs to be specified. If the callback returns false, fetching process is aborted with SEGMENT_VERIFICATION_FAIL. If data validation is not required, provided DontVerifySegment() functor can be used.


onComplete(const ConstBufferPtr& data)

onError(uint32_t errorCode, const std::string& errorMsg)

SegmentFetcher::fetch(face, Interest("/data/prefix", time::seconds(1000)),
                      bind(&onComplete, this, _1),
                      bind(&onError, this, _1, _2));

Member Function Documentation

void ndn::util::SegmentFetcher::fetch ( Face face,
const Interest baseInterest,
const VerifySegment verifySegment,
const CompleteCallback completeCallback,
const ErrorCallback errorCallback 

Initiate segment fetching.

faceReference to the Face that should be used to fetch data
baseInterestAn Interest for the initial segment of requested data. This interest may include custom InterestLifetime and selectors that will propagate to all subsequent Interests. The only exception is that the initial Interest will be forced to include "ChildSelector=1" and "MustBeFresh=true" selectors, which will be turned off in subsequent Interests.
verifySegmentFunctor to be called when Data segment is received. If functor return false, fetching will be aborted with SEGMENT_VERIFICATION_FAIL error
completeCallbackCallback to be fired when all segments are fetched
errorCallbackCallback to be fired when an error occurs (
