NAME

       libssh2_sftp_fsync - synchronize file to disk

SYNOPSIS

       #include <libssh2.h>
       #include <libssh2_sftp.h>

       int
       libssh2_sftp_fsync(LIBSSH2_SFTP_HANDLE *handle)

DESCRIPTION

       This  function  causes the remote server to synchronize the file data and metadata to disk
       (like fsync(2)).

       For this to work requires fsync@openssh.com support on the server.

       handle - SFTP File Handle as returned by libssh2_sftp_open_ex(3)

RETURN VALUE

       Returns 0 on success or negative on failure. If used  in  non-blocking  mode,  it  returns
       LIBSSH2_ERROR_EAGAIN  when  it  would  otherwise  block.  While  LIBSSH2_ERROR_EAGAIN is a
       negative number, it isn't really a failure per se.

ERRORS

       LIBSSH2_ERROR_ALLOC -  An internal memory allocation call failed.

       LIBSSH2_ERROR_SOCKET_SEND - Unable to send data on socket.

       LIBSSH2_ERROR_SFTP_PROTOCOL - An invalid  SFTP  protocol  response  was  received  on  the
       socket,  or  an  SFTP  operation  caused  an  errorcode  to be returned by the server.  In
       particular, this can be returned if the SSH server does not support the  fsync  operation:
       the SFTP subcode LIBSSH2_FX_OP_UNSUPPORTED will be returned in this case.

AVAILABILITY

       Added in libssh2 1.4.4 and OpenSSH 6.3.
