STATFS(2)                 (2020-12-21)                  STATFS(2)

          statfs, fstatfs - get filesystem statistics

          #include <sys/vfs.h>    /* or <sys/statfs.h> */

          int statfs(const char *path, struct statfs *buf);
          int fstatfs(int fd, struct statfs *buf);

          The statfs() system call returns information about a mounted
          filesystem.  path is the pathname of any file within the
          mounted filesystem.  buf is a pointer to a statfs structure
          defined approximately as follows:

              struct statfs {
                  __fsword_t f_type;    /* Type of filesystem (see below) */
                  __fsword_t f_bsize;   /* Optimal transfer block size */
                  fsblkcnt_t f_blocks;  /* Total data blocks in filesystem */
                  fsblkcnt_t f_bfree;   /* Free blocks in filesystem */
                  fsblkcnt_t f_bavail;  /* Free blocks available to
                                           unprivileged user */
                  fsfilcnt_t f_files;   /* Total inodes in filesystem */
                  fsfilcnt_t f_ffree;   /* Free inodes in filesystem */
                  fsid_t     f_fsid;    /* Filesystem ID */
                  __fsword_t f_namelen; /* Maximum length of filenames */
                  __fsword_t f_frsize;  /* Fragment size (since Linux 2.6) */
                  __fsword_t f_flags;   /* Mount flags of filesystem
                                           (since Linux 2.6.36) */

          Linux-specific.  The Linux statfs() was inspired by the
          4.4BSD one (but they do not use the same structure).

          The __fsword_t type used for various fields in the statfs
          structure definition is a glibc internal type, not intended
          for public use.  This leaves the programmer in a bit of a
          conundrum when trying to copy or compare these fields to
          local variables in a program.  Using unsigned int for such
          variables suffices on most systems.

          The original Linux statfs() and fstatfs() system calls were
          not designed with extremely large file sizes in mind.  Sub-
          sequently, Linux 2.6 added new statfs64() and fstatfs64()
          system calls that employ a new structure, statfs64. The new
          structure contains the same fields as the original statfs
          structure, but the sizes of various fields are increased, to
          accommodate large file sizes.  The glibc statfs() and
          fstatfs() wrapper functions transparently deal with the ker-
          nel differences.

          Some systems have only <sys/vfs.h>, other systems also have
          <sys/statfs.h>, where the former includes the latter.  So it
          seems including the former is the best choice.

          LSB has deprecated the library calls statfs() and fstatfs()
          and tells us to use statvfs(2) and fstatvfs(2) instead.

        The f_fsid field
          Solaris, Irix and POSIX have a system call statvfs(2) that
          returns a struct statvfs (defined in <sys/statvfs.h>) con-
          taining an unsigned long f_fsid. Linux, SunOS, HP-UX, 4.4BSD
          have a system call statfs() that returns a struct statfs
          (defined in <sys/vfs.h>) containing a fsid_t f_fsid, where
          fsid_t is defined as struct { int val[2]; }. The same holds
          for FreeBSD, except that it uses the include file

     Page 5                        Linux             (printed 5/21/22)

     STATFS(2)                 (2020-12-21)                  STATFS(2)

          The general idea is that f_fsid contains some random stuff
          such that the pair (f_fsid,ino) uniquely determines a file.
          Some operating systems use (a variation on) the device num-
          ber, or the device number combined with the filesystem type.
          Several operating systems restrict giving out the f_fsid
          field to the superuser only (and zero it for unprivileged
          users), because this field is used in the filehandle of the
          filesystem when NFS-exported, and giving it out is a secu-
          rity concern.

          Under some operating systems, the fsid can be used as the
          second argument to the sysfs(2) system call.

          From Linux 2.6.38 up to and including Linux 3.1, fstatfs()
          failed with the error ENOSYS for file descriptors created by

          stat(2), statvfs(3), path_resolution(7)
