USTAT(2)                      System Calls Manual                     USTAT(2)

       ustat - get file system statistics

       #include <&lt;sys/types.h>&gt;
       #include <&lt;ustat.h>&gt;

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

       ustat()  returns  information  about  a  mounted file system.  dev is a
       device number identifying a device containing a  mounted  file  system.
       This  is  normally  the  value  returned  in the st_dev field of a stat
       structure when a stat(), fstat(), or lstat() call is made on a file  on
       that  file system.  buf is a pointer to a ustat structure that includes
       the following elements:

              daddr_t f_tfree;         /* Total blocks available to non-super-user */
              ino_t   f_tinode;        /* Number of free files */
              char    f_fname[6];      /* Filsys name */
              char    f_fpack[6];      /* Filsys pack name */

       The f_fname and f_fpack fields are always set to a null string.   Other
       fields that are undefined for a particular file system are set to -1.

       ustat() returns:

       0      on success.

       -1     on failure and sets errno to indicate the error.

       EFAULT         buf points to an invalid address.

       EINVAL         dev  is  not  the device number of a device containing a
                      mounted file system.

       EIO            An I/O error occurred while reading from or  writing  to
                      the file system.

       stat(2V), statfs(2)

       The NFS revision 2 protocol does not permit the number of free files to
       be provided to the client; thus, when ustat() is done on  an  NFS  file
       system, f_tinode is always -1.
