GETVFSBYNAME(3)        FreeBSD Library Functions Manual        GETVFSBYNAME(3)

     getvfsbyname - get information about a file system

     Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

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

     getvfsbyname(const char *name, struct xvfsconf *vfc);

     The getvfsbyname() function provides access to information about a file
     system module that is configured in the kernel.  If successful, the
     requested file system xvfsconf is returned in the location pointed to by
     vfc.  The fields in a ``struct xvfsconf'' are defined as follows:

     vfc_name      the name of the file system
     vfc_typenum   the file system type number assigned by the kernel
     vfc_refcount  the number of active mount points using the file system
     vfc_flags     flag bits, as described below

     The flags are defined as follows:

     VFCF_STATIC      statically compiled into kernel
     VFCF_NETWORK     may get data over the network
     VFCF_READONLY    writes are not implemented
     VFCF_SYNTHETIC   data does not represent real files
     VFCF_LOOPBACK    aliases some other mounted FS
     VFCF_UNICODE     stores file names as Unicode
     VFCF_JAIL        can be mounted from within a jail if
                      security.jail.mount_allowed sysctl is set to 1
     VFCF_DELEGADMIN  supports delegated administration if vfs.usermount
                      sysctl is set to 1

     The getvfsbyname() function returns the value 0 if successful; otherwise
     the value -1 is returned and the global variable errno is set to indicate
     the error.

     The following errors may be reported:

     [ENOENT]           The name argument specifies a file system that is
                        unknown or not configured in the kernel.

     jail(2), mount(2), sysctl(3), jail(8), mount(8), sysctl(8)

     A variant of the getvfsbyname() function first appeared in FreeBSD 2.0.
