EventBuffer::lockAcquires a lock on buffer


public void EventBuffer::lock ( void )

Acquires a lock on buffer. Can be used in pair with EventBuffer::unlock to make a set of operations atomic, i.e. thread-safe. Note, it is not needed to lock buffers for individual operations. When locking is enabled(see EventBuffer::enableLocking ), individual operations on event buffers are already atomic.


This function has no parameters.
