|AIO_FSYNC(2)||System Calls Manual||AIO_FSYNC(2)|
asynchronous file synchronization (REALTIME)
Standard C Library (libc, -lc)
op, struct aiocb
system call allows the calling process to move all modified data associated
with the descriptor iocb->aio_fildes to a permanent
storage device. The call returns immediately after the synchronization
request has been enqueued to the descriptor; the synchronization may or may
not have completed at the time the call returns.
The op argument can only be set to
O_SYNC to cause all currently queued I/O operations
to be completed as if by a call to fsync(2).
If _POSIX_PRIORITIZED_IO is defined, and the descriptor supports it, then the enqueued operation is submitted at a priority equal to that of the calling process minus iocb->aio_reqprio.
The iocb pointer may be
subsequently used as an argument to
in order to determine return or error status for the enqueued operation
while it is in progress.
If the request could not be enqueued (generally due to invalid arguments), the call returns without having enqueued the request.
The iocb->aio_sigevent structure can be used to request notification of the operation's completion as described in aio(4).
The Asynchronous I/O Control Block structure pointed to by iocb must remain valid until the operation has completed.
The asynchronous I/O control buffer
iocb should be zeroed before the
call to avoid passing bogus context information to the kernel.
Modification of the Asynchronous I/O Control Block structure is not allowed while the request is queued.
aio_fsync() function returns the
value 0 if successful; otherwise the value -1 is returned and
the global variable errno is set to indicate the
aio_fsync() system call will fail
- The request was not queued because of system resource limitations.
- The asynchronous notification method in iocb->aio_sigevent.sigev_notify is invalid or not supported.
- Asynchronous file synchronization operations on the file descriptor iocb->aio_fildes are unsafe and unsafe asynchronous I/O operations are disabled.
- A value of the op argument is not set to
The following conditions may be synchronously detected when the
aio_fsync() system call is made, or asynchronously,
at any time thereafter. If they are detected at call time,
aio_fsync() returns -1 and sets
errno appropriately; otherwise the
aio_return() system call must be called, and will
return -1, and
aio_error() must be called to
determine the actual value that would have been returned in
- The iocb->aio_fildes argument is not a valid descriptor.
- This implementation does not support synchronized I/O for this file.
If the request is successfully enqueued, but subsequently
cancelled or an error occurs, the value returned by the
aio_return() system call is per the
read(2) and write(2) system calls, and
the value returned by the
aio_error() system call is
one of the error returns from the read(2) or
write(2) system calls.

aio_fsync() system call is expected to
conform to the IEEE Std 1003.1
aio_fsync() system call first appeared
in FreeBSD 7.0.
