NAME

sys/statvfs.h - VFS File System information structure

SYNOPSIS

#include <sys/statvfs.h>

DESCRIPTION

The <sys/statvfs.h> header shall define the statvfs structure that includes at least the following members:

unsigned long f_bsize File system block size. unsigned long f_frsize Fundamental file system block size. fsblkcnt_t f_blocks Total number of blocks on file system in units of f_frsize. fsblkcnt_t f_bfree Total number of free blocks. fsblkcnt_t f_bavail Number of free blocks available to non-privileged process. fsfilcnt_t f_files Total number of file serial numbers. fsfilcnt_t f_ffree Total number of free file serial numbers. fsfilcnt_t f_favail Number of file serial numbers available to non-privileged process. unsigned long f_fsid File system ID. unsigned long f_flag Bit mask of f_flag values. unsigned long f_namemax Maximum filename length.

The fsblkcnt_t and fsfilcnt_t types shall be defined as described in <sys/types.h> .

The following flags for the f_flag member shall be defined:
ST_RDONLY
  Read-only file system.
ST_NOSUID
  Does not support the semantics of the ST_ISUID and ST_ISGID file mode bits.

The following shall be declared as functions and may also be defined as macros. Function prototypes shall be provided.

int statvfs(const char *restrict, struct statvfs *restrict); int fstatvfs(int, struct statvfs *);

The following sections are informative.

APPLICATION USAGE

RATIONALE
