14.2.1 Device Drivers

Device drivers that implement GetHealthStatus() must verify that ChildHandle is NULL and that ControllerHandle represents a device currently under the device driver's management. The Driver Health Protocol also supports returning the combined health status for all controllers under a UEFI Driver's is management. This request is made by passing in a ControllerHandle value of NULL.

The following example shows the steps required to check these parameters. If these checks pass, the health status is returned. In this specific example, the driver opens the PCI I/O Protocol in its Driver Binding Start() function. This is why gEfiPciIoProtocolGuid is used in the call to the EDK II Library UefiLib function EfiTestManagedDevice() that checks to see if the UEFI Drivers providing this GetHealthStatus() service is currently managing ControllerHandle. If the private context structure is required, typically the UEFI Boot Service OpenProtocol() is used to open one of the UEFI Driver produced protocols on ControllerHandle and then uses a CR() based macro to retrieve a pointer to the private context structure.
