NAME

       ustat - get file system statistics

SYNOPSIS

       #include <sys/types.h>
       #include <unistd.h>    /* libc[45] */
       #include <ustat.h>     /* glibc2 */

       int ustat(dev_t dev, struct ustat *ubuf);

DESCRIPTION

       ustat()  returns  information  about  a  mounted  file  system.   dev  is  a device number
       identifying a device containing a mounted file system.  ubuf  is  a  pointer  to  a  ustat
       structure that contains the following members:

           daddr_t f_tfree;      /* Total free blocks */
           ino_t   f_tinode;     /* Number of free inodes */
           char    f_fname[6];   /* Filsys name */
           char    f_fpack[6];   /* Filsys pack name */

       The  last  two  fields, f_fname and f_fpack, are not implemented and will always be filled
       with null bytes ('\0').

RETURN VALUE

       On success, zero is returned and the ustat structure pointed to by ubuf will be filled in.
       On error, -1 is returned, and errno is set appropriately.

ERRORS

       EFAULT ubuf points outside of your accessible address space.

       EINVAL dev does not refer to a device containing a mounted file system.

       ENOSYS The  mounted  file system referenced by dev does not support this operation, or any
              version of Linux before 1.3.16.

CONFORMING TO

       SVr4.

NOTES

       ustat() is deprecated and has only been provided  for  compatibility.   All  new  programs
       should use statfs(2) instead.

   HP-UX Notes
       The  HP-UX  version  of  the  ustat  structure has an additional field, f_blksize, that is
       unknown elsewhere.  HP-UX warns: For some file systems, the number of free inodes does not
       change.   Such  file systems will return -1 in the field f_tinode.  For some file systems,
       inodes are dynamically allocated.  Such file systems will return  the  current  number  of
       free inodes.
