Description.  This function is used to retrieve the next log event, using data from the event to fill in the supplied ndb_logevent structure.


int ndb_logevent_get_next
      const NdbLogEventHandle handle,
      struct ndb_logevent*    logevent,
      unsigned                timeout


Prior to NDB 7.2.14 and NDB 7.3.2, the log event's ndb_mgm_event_category was cast to an enum type. This behavior, although incorrect, interefered with existing applications and was reinstated in NDB 7.2.18 and NDB 7.3.7; a new function exhibiting the corrected behavior ndb_logevent_get_next2() was added in these releases.

Parameters.  Three parameters are expected by this function:

Return value.  The value returned by this function is interpreted as follows: If the return value is less than or equal to zero, then the logevent is not altered or affected in any way.
