Dear Mike,

 

We tried to use the statfs call to know the total size and total number of files present in the mounted device.

 

statfs()

 

       struct statfs {

          long    f_type;     /* type of file system (see below) */

          long    f_bsize;    /* optimal transfer block size */

          long    f_blocks;   /* total data blocks in file system */

          long    f_bfree;    /* free blocks in fs */

          long    f_bavail;   /* free blocks avail to non-superuser */

          long    f_files;    /* total file nodes in file system */

          long    f_ffree;    /* free file nodes in fs */

          fsid_t  f_fsid;     /* file system id */

          long    f_namelen;  /* maximum length of filenames */

       }

 

In the above we are getting proper values for bsize and f_blocks from which we could manipulate the size used.

 

But f_files and f_ffreee are returned "0" in case of uClinux but works properly in desktop linux .

 

We need to get the total number of files present in the device. Can you please provide info on this?

 

Is there any other way to achieve the same?

 

Regards

 

Karthik

you probably arent comparing apples to apples.  what file system exactly are you using statfs() on under the Blackfin system ?  and what file system on your desktop ?

 

i wouldnt be surprised if tmpfs/ramfs didnt maintain this information because it doesnt make sense -- the number of free entries depends entirely on the amount free memory and that changes on the fly.
