datab(9S) Data Structures for Drivers datab(9S)NAME
datab, dblk - STREAMS message data structure
Architecture independent level 1 (DDI/DKI).
The datab structure describes the data of a STREAMS message. The actual data contained in a STREAMS message is stored in a data buffer
pointed to by this structure. A msgb (message block) structure includes a field that points to a datab structure.
Because a data block can have more than one message block pointing to it at one time, the db_ref member keeps track of a data block's ref-
erences, preventing it from being deallocated until all message blocks are finished with it.
unsigned char *db_base; /* first byte of buffer */
unsigned char *db_lim; /* last byte (+1) of buffer */
unsigned char db_ref; /* # of message pointers to this data */
unsigned char db_type; /* message type */
A datab structure is defined as type dblk_t.

msgb, mblk - STREAMS message block structure
Architecture independent level 1 (DDI/DKI)
A STREAMS message is made up of one or more message blocks, referenced by a pointer to a msgb structure. The b_next and b_prev pointers
are used to link messages together on a QUEUE. The b_cont pointer links message blocks together when a message consists of more than one
Each msgb structure also includes a pointer to a datab(9S) structure, the data block (which contains pointers to the actual data of the
message), and the type of the message.
struct msgb *b_next; /* next message on queue */
struct msgb *b_prev; /* previous message on queue */
struct msgb *b_cont; /* next message block */
unsigned char *b_rptr; /* 1st unread data byte of buffer */
unsigned char *b_wptr; /* 1st unwritten data byte of buffer */
struct datab *b_datap; /* pointer to data block */
unsigned char b_band; /* message priority */
unsigned short b_flag; /* used by stream head */
Valid flags are as follows:
MSGMARK Last byte of message is marked.
MSGDELIM Message is delimited.
The msgb structure is defined as type mblk_t.

That table is over 7 GB, bigger than the rest of the DB combined:
