NAME

       ioctl_xfs_getbmapx - query extent information for an open file

SYNOPSIS

       #include <xfs/xfs_fs.h>

       int ioctl(int fd, XFS_IOC_GETBMAP, struct getbmap *arg);
       int ioctl(int fd, XFS_IOC_GETBMAPA, struct getbmap *arg);
       int ioctl(int fd, XFS_IOC_GETBMAPX, struct getbmapx *arg);

DESCRIPTION

       Get  the block map for a segment of a file in an XFS file system.  The mapping information
       is conveyed via an array of structures of the following form:

           struct getbmap {
                __s64   bmv_offset;
                __s64   bmv_block;
                __s64   bmv_length;
                __s32   bmv_count;
                __s32   bmv_entries;
           };

       The XFS_IOC_GETBMAPX ioctl uses a larger version of that structure:

           struct getbmapx {
                __s64   bmv_offset;
                __s64   bmv_block;
                __s64   bmv_length;
                __s32   bmv_count;
                __s32   bmv_entries;
                __s32   bmv_iflags;
                __s32   bmv_oflags;
                __s32   bmv_unused1;
                __s32   bmv_unused2;
           };

       All sizes and offsets in the structure are in units of 512 bytes.

       The first structure in the array is a header and the remaining  structures  in  the  array
       contain  block  map  information  on  return.   The header controls iterative calls to the
       command and should be filled out as follows:

       bmv_offset
              The file offset of the area of interest in the file.

       bmv_length
              The length of the area of interest in the file.  If this value is set  to  -1,  the
              length of the interesting area is the rest of the file.

       bmv_count
              The  number  of elements in the array, including this header.  The minimum value is
              2.

       bmv_entries
              The number of entries actually filled in by the call.  This does  not  need  to  be
              filled out before the call.  This value may be zero if no extents were found in the
              requested range, or if iterated calls have reached the end of the requested range.

       bmv_iflags
              For the XFS_IOC_GETBMAPX function, this is a bitmask containing  a  combination  of
              the following flags:

           BMV_IF_ATTRFORK
                  Return information about the extended attribute fork.

           BMV_IF_PREALLOC
                  Return information about unwritten pre-allocated segments.

           BMV_IF_DELALLOC
                  Return information about delayed allocation reservation segments.

           BMV_IF_NO_HOLES
                  Do not return information about holes.

       The other bmv_* fields in the header are ignored.

       On  successful  return from a call, the offset and length values in the header are updated
       so that the command can be reused to obtain more information.  The remaining  elements  of
       the array will be filled out by the call as follows:

       bmv_offset
              File offset of segment.

       bmv_block
              Physical starting block of segment.  If this is -1, then the segment is a hole.

       bmv_length
              Length of segment.

       bmv_oflags
              The  XFS_IOC_GETBMAPX  function  will  fill  this  field  with a combination of the
              following flags:

           BMV_OF_PREALLOC
                  The segment is an unwritten pre-allocation.

           BMV_OF_DELALLOC
                  The segment is a delayed allocation reservation.

           BMV_OF_LAST
                  This segment is the last in the file.

           BMV_OF_SHARED
                  This segment shares blocks with other files.

       The other bmv_* fields are unused in the array of output records.

       The XFS_IOC_GETBMAPA command is identical to XFS_IOC_GETBMAP except that information about
       the attribute fork of the file is returned.

RETURN VALUE

       On error, -1 is returned, and errno is set to indicate the error.

ERRORS

       Error codes can be one of, but are not limited to, the following:

       EFAULT The kernel was not able to copy into the userspace buffer.

       EFSBADCRC
              Metadata checksum validation failed while performing the query.

       EFSCORRUPTED
              Metadata corruption was encountered while performing the query.

       EINVAL One of the arguments was not valid.

       EIO    An I/O error was encountered while performing the query.

       ENOMEM There was insufficient memory to perform the query.
