GETFSSTAT(2)		  FreeBSD System Calls Manual		  GETFSSTAT(2)

     getfsstat -- get list of all mounted file systems

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

     getfsstat(struct statfs *buf, size_t bufsize, int flags);

     getfsstat() returns information about all mounted file systems.  buf is a
     pointer to	an array of statfs(2) structures 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 */
	 u_int32_t  f_bsize; /*	file system block size */
	 u_int32_t  f_iosize;	     /*	optimal	transfer block size */

				     /*	unit is	f_bsize	*/
	 u_int64_t  f_blocks;	     /*	total data blocks in file system */
	 u_int64_t  f_bfree; /*	free blocks in fs */
	 int64_t    f_bavail;	     /*	free blocks avail to non-superuser */

	 u_int64_t  f_files; /*	total file nodes in file system	*/
	 u_int64_t  f_ffree; /*	free file nodes	in fs */
	 int64_t    f_favail;	     /*	free file nodes	avail to non-root */

	 u_int64_t  f_syncwrites;    /*	count of sync writes since mount */
	 u_int64_t  f_syncreads;     /*	count of sync reads since mount	*/
	 u_int64_t  f_asyncwrites;   /*	count of async writes since mount */
	 u_int64_t  f_asyncreads;    /*	count of async reads since mount */

	 fsid_t	    f_fsid;	     /*	file system id */
	 u_int32_t  f_namemax;	     /*	maximum	filename length	*/
	 uid_t	    f_owner; /*	user that mounted the file system */
	 u_int64_t  f_ctime; /*	last mount [-u]	time */

	 char f_fstypename[MFSNAMELEN];	     /*	fs type	name */
	 char f_mntonname[MNAMELEN]; /*	directory on which mounted */
	 char f_mntfromname[MNAMELEN];	     /*	mounted	file system */
	 char f_mntfromspec[MNAMELEN];	     /*	special	for mount request */
	 union mount_info mount_info;	     /*	per-filesystem mount options */

     The buffer	is filled with an array	of statfs structures, one for each
     mounted file system up to the size	specified by bufsize.

     If	buf is NULL, getfsstat() returns just the number of mounted file sys-

     Normally flags should be specified	as MNT_WAIT.  If flags is set to
     MNT_NOWAIT, getfsstat() will return the information it has	available
     without requesting	an update from each file system.  Thus,	some of	the
     information will be out of	date, but getfsstat() will not block waiting
     for information from a file system	that is	unable to respond.  If no
     flags are provided, MNT_WAIT is assumed.

     Note that f_fsid will be empty unless the user is the superuser.

     Upon successful completion, the number of statfs structures is returned.
     Otherwise,	-1 is returned and the global variable errno is	set to indi-
     cate the error.

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

     [EFAULT]		buf points to an invalid address.

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

     statfs(2),	fstab(5), mount(8)

     The getfsstat() function first appeared in	4.4BSD.
