SYSEVENT_GET_ATTR_LIST(3SYSEVENT) System Event Library Functions


NAME


sysevent_get_attr_list - get attribute list pointer

SYNOPSIS


cc [flag ...] file... -lsysevent -lnvpair [library ...]
#include <libsysevent.h>
#include <libnvpair.h>

int sysevent_get_attr_list(sysevent_t *ev, nvlist_t **attr_list);


PARAMETERS


ev
handle to a system event


attr_list
address of a pointer to attribute list (nvlist_t)


DESCRIPTION


The sysevent_get_attr_list() function updates attr_list to point to a
searchable name-value pair list associated with the sysevent event, ev.
The interface manages the allocation of the attribute list, but it is up
to the caller to free the list when it is no longer needed with a call to
nvlist_free(). See nvlist_alloc(3NVPAIR).

RETURN VALUES


The sysevent_get_attr_list() function returns 0 if the attribute list for
ev is found to be valid. Otherwise it returns -1 and sets errno to
indicate the error.

ERRORS


The sysevent_get_attr_list() function will fail if:

ENOMEM
Insufficient memory available to allocate an nvlist.


EINVAL
Invalid sysevent event attribute list.
