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 −1. 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

4.4BSD.
