> What is this non-blocking API?

When you call a blocking API with a request it will not return until the
requested transaction is completed (successfully or otherwise).

A non-blocking API will return as soon as it has logged the request thus
allowing the thread to continue doing something else while the requested
transaction is being processed.

The easy interface is blocking.

The multi interface is non-blocking.

Is that what you wanted to know?
