io_fsync

NAME

io_fsync - Synchronize a file's complete in-core state with that on disk  

SYNOPSYS

#include <errno.h>


#include <libaio.h>
int io_fsync(io_context_t ctx, struct iocb *iocb, io_callback_t cb, int fd) struct iocb { void *data; unsigned key; short aio_lio_opcode; short aio_reqprio; int aio_fildes; }; typedef void (*io_callback_t)(io_context_t ctx, struct iocb *iocb, long res, long res2);
 

DESCRIPTION

When dealing with asynchronous operations it is sometimes necessary to get into a consistent state. This would mean for AIO that one wants to know whether a certain request or a group of request were processed. This could be done by waiting for the notification sent by the system after the operation terminated, but this sometimes would mean wasting resources (mainly computation time).

Calling this function forces all I/O operations operating queued at the time of the function call operating on the file descriptor iocb->io_fildes into the synchronized I/O completion state . The io_fsync function returns immediately but the notification through the method described in io_callback will happen only after all requests for this file descriptor have terminated and the file is synchronized. This also means that requests for this very same file descriptor which are queued after the synchronization request are not affected.  

RETURN VALUES

Returns 0, otherwise returns errno.  

ERRORS

EFAULT
iocbs referenced data outside of the program's accessible address space.
EINVAL
ctx refers to an unitialized aio context, the iocb pointed to by iocbs contains an improperly initialized iocb,
EBADF
The iocb contains a file descriptor that does not exist.
EINVAL
The file specified in the iocb does not support the given io operation.
