STATFS(2)                  BSD Programmer's Manual                   STATFS(2)


     statfs - get filesystem statistics


     #include <sys/param.h>
     #include <sys/mount.h>

     statfs(const char *path, struct statfs *buf);

     fstatfs(int fd, struct statfs *buf);


     statfs() returns information about a mounted filesystem. path is the path
     name of any file within the mounted filesystem. buf is a pointer to a
     statfs structure defined as follows:

     typedef struct { int32_t val[2]; } fsid_t;

     #define MFSNAMELEN   16 /* length of fs type name, including nul */
     #define MNAMELEN     90 /* length of buffer for returned name */

     struct statfs {
         u_int32_t  f_flags;       /* copy of mount flags */
         int32_t    f_bsize;       /* fundamental filesystem block size */
         u_int32_t  f_iosize;      /* optimal transfer block size */
         u_int32_t  f_blocks;      /* total data blocks in filesystem */
         u_int32_t  f_bfree;       /* free blocks in fs */
         int32_t    f_bavail;      /* free blocks avail to non-superuser */
         u_int32_t  f_files;       /* total file nodes in filesystem */
         u_int32_t  f_ffree;       /* free file nodes in fs */
         fsid_t     f_fsid;        /* filesystem id */
         uid_t      f_owner;       /* user that mounted the filesystem */
         u_int32_t  f_syncwrites;  /* count of sync writes since mount */
         u_int32_t  f_asyncwrites; /* count of async writes since mount */
         u_int32_t  f_ctime;       /* last mount [-u] time */
         u_int32_t  f_spare[3];    /* spare for later */
         char       f_fstypename[MFSNAMELEN]; /* fs type name */
         char       f_mntonname[MNAMELEN];    /* directory on which mounted */
         char       f_mntfromname[MNAMELEN];  /* mounted filesystem */
         union mount_info mount_info;         /* per-filesystem mount options */

     fstatfs() returns the same information about an open file referenced by
     descriptor fd.


     Upon successful completion, a value of 0 is returned. Otherwise, -1 is
     returned and the global variable errno is set to indicate the error.


     statfs() fails if one or more of the following are true:

     [ENOTDIR]     A component of the path prefix of path is not a directory.

                   The length of a component of path exceeds {NAME_MAX} char-
                   acters, or the length of path exceeds {PATH_MAX} charac-

     [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

     The statfs() function first appeared in 4.4BSD.
