KSTAT_IO(9S) Data Structures for Drivers KSTAT_IO(9S)


NAME


kstat_io - structure for I/O kstats

SYNOPSIS


#include <sys/types.h>
#include <sys/kstat.h>
#include <sys/ddi.h>
#include <sys/sunddi.h>


INTERFACE LEVEL


Solaris DDI specific (Solaris DDI)

DESCRIPTION


I/O kstat statistics are kept in a kstat_io structure. When
kstat_create(9F) creates an I/O kstat, the ks_data field is a pointer to
one of these structures. The macro KSTAT_IO_PTR() is provided to retrieve
this field. It looks like this:

#define KSTAT_IO_PTR(kptr) ((kstat_io_t *)(kptr)->ks_data)


STRUCTURE MEMBERS


u_longlong_t nread; /* number of bytes read */
u_longlong_t nwritten; /* number of bytes written *]/
ulong_t reads; /* number of read operations */
ulong_t writes; /* number of write operations */


The nread field should be updated by the driver with the number of bytes
successfully read upon completion.


The nwritten field should be updated by the driver with the number of
bytes successfully written upon completion.


The reads field should be updated by the driver after each successful
read operation.


The writes field should be updated by the driver after each successful
write operation.


Other I/O statistics are updated through the use of the kstat_queue(9F)
functions.
