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 0. 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

The Linux statfs was inspired by the 4.4BSD one (but they do not use the same structure).
