statvfs, fstatvfs - get file system information SYNOPSIS
#include <sys/types.h> #include <sys/statvfs.h> int statvfs(const char *restrict path, struct statvfs *restrict buf); int fstatvfs(int fildes, struct statvfs *buf); DESCRIPTION
The statvfs() function returns a "generic superblock" describing a file system; it can be used to acquire information about mounted file systems. The buf argument is a pointer to a structure (described below) that is filled by the function. The path argument should name a file that resides on that file system. The file system type is known to the operating system. Read, write, or execute permission for the named file is not required, but all directories listed in the path name leading to the file must be search- able. The statvfs structure pointed to by buf includes the following members: u_long f_bsize; /* preferred file system block size */ u_long f_frsize; /* fundamental filesystem block (size if supported) */ fsblkcnt_t f_blocks; /* total # of blocks on file system in units of f_frsize */ fsblkcnt_t f_bfree; /* total # of free blocks */ fsblkcnt_t f_bavail; /* # of free blocks avail to non-privileged user */ fsfilcnt_t f_files; /* total # of file nodes (inodes) */ fsfilcnt_t f_ffree; /* total # of free file nodes */ fsfilcnt_t f_favail; /* # of inodes avail to non-privileged user*/ u_long f_fsid; /* file system id (dev for now) */ char f_basetype[FSTYPSZ]; /* target fs type name, null-terminated */ u_long f_flag; /* bit mask of flags */ u_long f_namemax; /* maximum file name length */ char f_fstr[32]; /* file system specific string */ u_long f_filler[16]; /* reserved for future expansion */ The f_basetype member contains a null-terminated FSType name of the mounted target. The following values can be returned in the f_flag field: ST_RDONLY 0x01 /* read-only file system */ ST_NOSUID 0x02 /* does not support setuid/setgid semantics */ ST_NOTRUNC 0x04 /* does not truncate file names longer than NAME_MAX */ The fstatvfs() function is similar to statvfs(), except that the file named by path in statvfs() is instead identified by an open file descriptor fildes obtained from a successful open(2), creat(2), dup(2), fcntl(2), or pipe(2) function call. RETURN VALUES
Upon successful completion, 0 is returned. Otherwise, -1 is returned and errno is set to indicate the error. ERRORS
The statvfs() and fstatvfs() functions will fail if: EOVERFLOW One of the values to be returned cannot be represented correctly in the structure pointed to by buf. The statvfs() function will fail if: EACCES Search permission is denied on a component of the path prefix. EFAULT The path or buf argument points to an illegal address. EINTR A signal was caught during the execution of the statvfs() function. EIO An I/O error occurred while reading the file system. ELOOP Too many symbolic links were encountered in translating path. ENAMETOOLONG The length of a path component exceeds NAME_MAX characters, or the length of path The exceeds PATH_MAX characters. ENOENT Either a component of the path prefix or the file referred to by path does not exist. ENOLINK The path argument points to a remote machine and the link to that machine is no longer active. ENOTDIR A component of the path prefix of path is not a directory. The fstatvfs() function will fail if: EBADF The fildes argument is not an open file descriptor. EFAULT The buf argument points to an illegal address. EINTR A signal was caught during the execution of the fstatvfs() function. EIO An I/O error occurred while reading the file system. USAGE
The statvfs() and fstatvfs() functions have transitional interfaces for 64-bit file offsets. See lf64(5). ATTRIBUTES
