sys/statvfs.h — VFS File System information structure
The <sys/statvfs.h> header shall define the statvfs structure, which shall include at least the following members:
f_bsize File system block size.
unsigned long f_frsize Fundamental file system block size.
fsblkcnt_t f_blocks Total number of blocks on file system in units of f_frsize.
fsblkcnt_t f_bfree Total number of free blocks.
fsblkcnt_t f_bavail Number of free blocks available to
fsfilcnt_t f_files Total number of file serial numbers.
fsfilcnt_t f_ffree Total number of free file serial numbers.
fsfilcnt_t f_favail Number of file serial numbers available to
unsigned long f_fsid File system ID.
unsigned long f_flag Bit mask of f_flag values.
unsigned long f_namemax Maximum filename length.
The <sys/statvfs.h> header shall define the fsblkcnt_t and fsfilcnt_t types as described in <sys/types.h>.
The <sys/statvfs.h> header shall define the following symbolic constants for the f_flag member:
Read-only file system.
Does not support the semantics of the ST_ISUID and ST_ISGID file mode bits.
The following shall be declared as functions and may also be defined as macros. Function prototypes shall be provided.
fstatvfs(int, struct statvfs *);
int statvfs(const char *restrict, struct statvfs *restrict);
