GETMNTINFO(3)						   BSD Library Functions Manual 					     GETMNTINFO(3)

getmntinfo getmntinfo64 -- get information about mounted file systems SYNOPSIS
#include <sys/param.h> #include <sys/ucred.h> #include <sys/mount.h> int getmntinfo(struct statfs **mntbufp, int flags); TRANSITIIONAL SYNOPSIS (NOW DEPRECATED) int getmntinfo64(struct statfs64 **mntbufp, int flags); DESCRIPTION
The getmntinfo() function returns an array of statfs structures describing each currently mounted file system (see statfs(2)). As statfs(2) indicates, the structure is defined differently depending on whether the macro _DARWIN_FEATURE_64_BIT_INODE is defined (see stat(2) for more information on this macro). The getmntinfo() function passes its flags argument transparently to getfsstat(2). RETURN VALUES
On successful completion, getmntinfo() returns a count of the number of elements in the array. The pointer to the array is stored into mntbufp. If an error occurs, zero is returned and the external variable errno is set to indicate the error. Although the pointer mntbufp will be unmodified, any information previously returned by getmntinfo() will be lost. ERRORS
The getmntinfo() function may fail and set errno for any of the errors specified for the library routines getfsstat(2) or malloc(3). TRANSITIONAL DESCRIPTION (NOW DEPRECATED) The getmntinfo64() routine is equivalent to its corresponding non-64-suffixed routine, when 64-bit inodes are in effect. It was added before there was support for the symbol variants, and so is now deprecated. Instead of using it, set the _DARWIN_USE_64_BIT_INODE macro before including header files to force 64-bit inode support. The statfs64 structure used by this deprecated routine is the same as the statfs structure when 64-bit inodes are in effect. SEE ALSO
getfsstat(2), mount(2), stat(2), statfs(2), mount(8) HISTORY
The getmntinfo() function first appeared in 4.4BSD. BUGS
The getmntinfo() function writes the array of structures to an internal static object and returns a pointer to that object. Subsequent calls to getmntinfo() will modify the same object. The memory allocated by getmntinfo() cannot be free(3)'d by the application. BSD

getfsstat -- get list of all mounted file systems SYNOPSIS
#include <sys/param.h> #include <sys/ucred.h> #include <sys/mount.h> int getfsstat(struct statfs *buf, long bufsize, int flags); DESCRIPTION
Getfsstat() returns information about all mounted file systems. Buf is a pointer to an array of statfs structures defined as follows: typedef struct { int32_t val[2]; } fsid_t; #define MFSNAMELEN 15 /* length of fs type name, not inc. nul */ #define MNAMELEN 90 /* length of buffer for returned name */ struct statfs { short f_otype; /* type of file system (reserved: zero) */ short f_oflags; /* copy of mount flags (reserved: zero) */ long f_bsize; /* fundamental file system block size */ long f_iosize; /* optimal transfer block size */ long f_blocks; /* total data blocks in file system */ long f_bfree; /* free blocks in fs */ long f_bavail; /* free blocks avail to non-superuser */ long f_files; /* total file nodes in file system */ long f_ffree; /* free file nodes in fs */ fsid_t f_fsid; /* file system id (super-user only) */ uid_t f_owner; /* user that mounted the file system */ short f_reserved1; /* reserved for future use */ short f_type; /* type of file system (reserved) */ long f_flags; /* copy of mount flags (reserved) */ long f_reserved2[2]; /* reserved for future use */ char f_fstypename[MFSNAMELEN]; /* fs type name */ char f_mntonname[MNAMELEN]; /* directory on which mounted */ char f_mntfromname[MNAMELEN]; /* mounted file system */ char f_reserved3; /* reserved for future use */ long f_reserved4[4]; /* reserved for future use */ }; Fields that are undefined for a particular file system are set to -1. The buffer is filled with an array of statfs structures, one for each mounted file system up to the size specified by bufsize. If buf is given as NULL, getfsstat() returns just the number of mounted file systems. Normally flags should be specified as MNT_WAIT. If flags is set to MNT_NOWAIT, getfsstat() will return the information it has available without requesting an update from each file system. Thus, some of the information will be out of date, but getfsstat() will not block wait- ing for information from a file system that is unable to respond. RETURN VALUES
Upon successful completion, the number of statfs structures is returned. Otherwise, -1 is returned and the global variable errno is set to indicate the error. ERRORS
Getfsstat() fails if one or more of the following are true: [EFAULT] Buf points to an invalid address. [EIO] An I/O error occurred while reading from or writing to the file system. SEE ALSO
