7.1 Overview

Pset (port set) objects are a rendezvous point for ports and threads. A port must have an associated port set in order for a thread to receive messages via fluke_ipc_wait. Multiple ports can be associated with the same port set allowing a pool of threads to service requests from a group of related ports.

Ports may be moved between port sets transparently to any clients using the ports.
