STATFS(2)			    Linux Programmer's Manual				STATFS(2)

NAME
       statfs, fstatfs - get file system statistics

SYNOPSIS
       #include <sys/vfs.h>

       int statfs(const char *path, struct statfs *buf);
       int fstatfs(int fd, struct statfs *buf);

DESCRIPTION
       statfs returns information about a mounted file system.	path is the path name of any file
       within the mounted filesystem.  buf is a pointer to a statfs structure defined as follows:

	      struct statfs {
		 long	 f_type;     /* type of filesystem (see below) */
		 long	 f_bsize;    /* 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 */
		 long	 f_namelen;  /* maximum length of filenames */
		 long	 f_spare[6]; /* spare for later */
	      };

       Fields that are undefined for a particular file system are set to 0.  fstatfs returns  the
       same information about an open file referenced by descriptor fd.

RETURN VALUE
       On success, zero is returned.  On error, -1 is returned, and errno is set appropriately.

ERRORS
       For statfs:

       ENOTDIR
	      A component of the path prefix of path is not a directory.

       ENAMETOOLONG
	      path is too long.

       ENOENT The file referred to by path does not exist.

       EACCES Search permission is denied for a component of the path prefix of path.

       ELOOP  Too many symbolic links were encountered in translating path.

       EFAULT Buf or path points to an invalid address.

       EIO    An I/O error occurred while reading from or writing to the file system.

       ENOMEM Insufficient kernel memory was available.

       ENOSYS The filesystem path is on does not support statfs.

       For fstatfs:

       EBADF  fd is not a valid open file descriptor.

       EFAULT buf points to an invalid address.

       EIO    An I/O error occurred while reading from or writing to the file system.

       ENOSYS The filesystem fd is open on does not support statfs.

CONFORMING TO
       The Linux statfs was inspired by the 4.4BSD one (but they do not use the same structure).
