PMEM2_SOURCE_DEVICE_USC(3) PMDK Programmer's Manual PMEM2_SOURCE_DEVICE_USC(3)

NAME

pmem2_source_device_usc() - returns the unsafe shutdown counter value of a device

SYNOPSIS


#include <libpmem2.h>
struct pmem2_source;
int pmem2_source_device_usc(const struct pmem2_source *source, uint64_t *usc);

    

DESCRIPTION

The pmem2_source_device_usc() function retrieves the sum of the unsafe shutdown count(USC) values of all hardware devices backing the data source and stores it in *usc.

Please refer to libpmem2_unsafe_shutdown(7) for detailed description on how to properly consume this information.

RETURN VALUE

The pmem2_source_device_usc() function returns 0 on success. If the function fails, the *usc variable content is left unmodified and a negative error code is returned.

ERRORS

The pmem2_source_device_usc() can fail with the following errors:

On all systems:

PMEM2_E_NOSUPP - the underlying platform does not expose unsafe shutdown count information.

On Windows:

-errno equivalent of return code set by failing GetFinalPathNameByHandleW(), while trying to resolve volume path from the file handle.
-errno set by failing malloc(3), while trying to allocate a buffer for storing volume path.
-errno equivalent of return code set by failing CreateFileW(), while trying to obtain a handle to the volume.
-errno equivalent of return code set by failing DeviceIoControl(), while trying to obtain volume USC value.

On Linux:

-errno set by failing fstat(2), while trying to validate the file descriptor.
-errno set by failing ndctl_new(), while trying to initiate a new NDCTL library context.
-errno set by failing ndctl_dimm_get_dirty_shutdown(), while trying to obtain DIMM USC value.
