ustat - get filesystem statistics
#include <sys/types.h> #include <unistd.h> /* libc */ #include <ustat.h> /* glibc2 */ int ustat(dev_t dev, struct ustat *ubuf);
ustat() returns information about a mounted filesystem. dev is a device number identifying a device containing a mounted filesystem. ubuf is a pointer to a ustat structure that contains the following members: daddr_t f_tfree; /* Total free blocks */ ino_t f_tinode; /* Number of free inodes */ char f_fname; /* Filsys name */ char f_fpack; /* Filsys pack name */ The last two fields, f_fname and f_fpack, are not implemented and will always be filled with null bytes ('\0').
On success, zero is returned and the ustat structure pointed to by ubuf will be filled in. On error, -1 is returned, and errno is set appropriately.
EFAULT ubuf points outside of your accessible address space. EINVAL dev does not refer to a device containing a mounted filesystem. ENOSYS The mounted filesystem referenced by dev does not support this operation, or any version of Linux before 1.3.16.
ustat() is deprecated and has been provided only for compatibility. All new programs should use statfs(2) instead. HP-UX notes The HP-UX version of the ustat structure has an additional field, f_blksize, that is unknown elsewhere. HP-UX warns: For some filesystems, the number of free inodes does not change. Such filesystems will return -1 in the field f_tinode. For some filesystems, inodes are dynamically allocated. Such filesystems will return the current number of free inodes.

Business Opportunity - Goldman Sachs, IBM and countless large corporations are leveraging open source to reduce costs, develop products and increase their bottom lines. Learn what these companies know about open source and how open source can give you the advantage.
Free Software provides computer programs and capabilities at no cost but more importantly, it provides the freedom to run, edit, contribute to, and share the software. The importance of free software is a matter of access, not price. Software at no cost is a benefit but ownership rights to the software and source code is far more significant.
