streamtab(9S) Data Structures for Drivers streamtab(9S)NAME
streamtab - STREAMS entity declaration structure
Architecture independent level 1 (DDI/DKI).
Each STREAMS driver or module must have a streamtab structure.
streamtab is made up of qinit structures for both the read and write queue portions of each module or driver. Multiplexing drivers require
both upper and lower qinit structures. The qinit structure contains the entry points through which the module or driver routines are
Normally, the read QUEUE contains the open and close routines. Both the read and write queue can contain put and service procedures.
struct qinit *st_rdinit; /* read QUEUE */
struct qinit *st_wrinit; /* write QUEUE */
struct qinit *st_muxrinit; /* lower read QUEUE*/
struct qinit *st_muxwinit; /* lower write QUEUE*/

queue - STREAMS queue structure
Architecture independent level 1 (DDI/DKI)
A STREAMS driver or module consists of two queue structures, one for upstream processing (read) and one for downstream processing
(write). This structure is the major building block of a stream. It contains pointers to the processing procedures, pointers to the next
and previous queues in the stream, flow control parameters, and a pointer defining the position of its messages on the STREAMS scheduler
The queue structure is defined as type queue_t.
struct qinit*q_qinfo; /* module or driver entry points */
struct msgb*q_first; /* first message in queue */
struct msgb*q_last; /* last message in queue */
struct queue*q_next; /* next queue in stream */
struct queue*q_link; /* to next queue for scheduling*/
void *q_ptr; /* pointer to private data structure */
size_t q_count; /* approximate size of message queue */
uint_t q_flag; /* status of queue */
ssize_t q_minpsz; /* smallest packet accepted by QUEUE*/
ssize_t q_maxpsz; /*largest packet accepted by QUEUE */
size_t q_hiwat; /* high water mark */
size_t q_lowat; /* low water mark */
Valid flags are as follows:
QENAB Queue is already enabled to run.
QWANTR Someone wants to read queue.
QWANTW Someone wants to write to queue.
QFULL Queue is considered full.
QREADR This is the reader (first) queue.
QUSE This queue is in use (allocation).
QNOENB Do not enable queue by way of putq().

I have a AIX kernel STREAMS question need your help,
I need to implement a firewall on AIX and get packet raw data then decide pass or drop it,
I've seen similiar firewall code on HP-UX,
on HP-UX, you have to implement a "dlpi STREAMS driver", and specify it as a "dlpi" driver in... (1 Reply)
