Process updates asynchronously.
Instead of directly modifying the host list, update requests are queued and applied to the list at the start of the next ping cycle. This speed ups updates and avoids their adverse effect on non-destructive get requests. * README: Document changes. * doc/ping903.conf.5: Document the http-backlog-size parameter. * src/ping903.c (http_response_detail): New function. (ept_ip_delete, ept_ip_put, ept_ip_post) (ept_host_stat, ept_ip_stat): Provide meanungful error descriptions. * src/ping903.h: Definitions for the Update and Get error codes. * src/pinger.c: Queue update requests and commit them to the main host list at the beginning of the ping cycle. (update_mutex): New variable. (check_host,update_add) (update_commit): New functions. (hostlist_updated): Remove variable. (get_hostname_stat,get_ipaddr_stat,get_all_host_stat) (get_all_hosts,get_host_matches): Return meaningful error codes. (pinger_host_delete_by_name,pinger_host_add_name) (pinger_hostlist_set): Operate on the update request queue instead of the main host list. Return meaningful error codes. (start_probe): Remove. (p903_scheduler): Commit updates at the beginning of the cycle. Lock the list using sendq_mutex. (p903_saver): Call update_commit.
