       This  manual  page  is part of the POSIX Programmer's Manual.  The Linux implementation of

NAME
       mq_getattr - get message queue attributes (REALTIME)

SYNOPSIS
       #include <mqueue.h>

       int mq_getattr(mqd_t mqdes, struct mq_attr *mqstat);

DESCRIPTION
       The  mq_getattr()  function  shall obtain status information and attributes of the message
       queue and the open message queue description associated with the message queue descriptor.

       The mqdes argument specifies a message queue descriptor.

       The results shall be returned in the mq_attr structure referenced by the mqstat argument.

       Upon return, the following members shall have the values associated with the open  message
       queue  description  as set when the message queue was opened and as modified by subsequent
       mq_setattr() calls: mq_flags.

       The following attributes of the message queue shall be returned as set  at  message  queue
       creation: mq_maxmsg, mq_msgsize.

       Upon  return,  the following members within the mq_attr structure referenced by the mqstat
       argument shall be set to the current state of the message queue:

       mq_curmsgs
	      The number of messages currently on the queue.

RETURN VALUE
       Upon successful completion, the mq_getattr() function shall return  zero.  Otherwise,  the
       function shall return -1 and set errno to indicate the error.

ERRORS
       The mq_getattr() function shall fail if:

       EBADF  The mqdes argument is not a valid message queue descriptor.
