Fstat system call

Not all file systems on Linux implement all time fields. Some types of file systems allow mounting in such a way that file accesses do not cause an update of the st_atime field (See ‘noatime’ in mount(8).)

The st_atime field is modified by file accesses, e.g. by execve(2), mknod(2), pipe(2), utime(2) and read(2) (of more than zero bytes). Other routines, such as mmap(2), may or may not update st_atime.

The st_mtime field is modified by changes in the file, e.g., by mknod(2), truncate(2), utime(2) and write(2) (greater than zero bytes). In addition, the st_mtime field of a directory is modified by the creation or deletion of files in that directory. The st_mtime field is not modified by changes in the owner, group, hard link counter, or mode.

The SETGID (S_ISGID) bit has several special uses: for a directory, it indicates that BSD semantics are to be used for the directory: files created there will inherit their GID from the directory, not from the effective GID of the process creating each file, and directories created there will also have the S_ISGID bit set. For a file that does not have the group execution bit (S_IXGRP) set, it indicates mandatory file/record locking.

Con respecto a que la función stat() en archivos de más de 2GB en sistemas de 32 bits no funciona, tenga en cuenta que el comportamiento parece diferir entre Linux y Windows.    Bajo Windows no hay forma de saber si esto falló o no, pero mi experiencia es que bajo Linux, realizar un stat() en archivos que son demasiado grandes para el tamaño del entero genera una advertencia y devuelve false.    Sin embargo, en Windows se truncan silenciosamente los bits de orden superior del tamaño, dando como resultado un número incorrecto.    La única forma de saber que ha fallado es en el caso de que el truncamiento deje el bit de signo activado, lo que da como resultado un tamaño negativo.    Es decir, no hay una forma fiable de saber que ha fallado.Esto es cierto también para filesize().Tom

stat() puede no funcionar en CIFS’ montados en sistemas de 32 bits si no se especifica la opción noserverino al montar. Por ejemplo: mount -t cifs -o user=”user”,password=”password”,noserverino //example.local/share /mnt/mount-pointOtras funciones basadas en datos de stat() como las funciones de tiempo de archivo y is_dir() se ven afectadas de la misma manera.Esto sucede porque si no se especifica la opción noserverino el inodo remoto puede estar basado en 64 bits y por tanto el sistema local no puede manejarlo.

3 Introduction System Calls: An API composed of a series of functions, which allow to obtain a series of services from the Operating System. Each function has input and output parameters. POSIX (Portable Operating System Interface): IEEE standard that defines a specific API for system calls. Implementation of the API can be in any programming language. 3

4 Introduction UNIX was programmed in C In C we have a set of functions with parameters and a returned value (can also be void) Value returned by a function in UNIX is usually if there is an error (-1) or not (0), it does not tell us what error it is, but there is a global system variable that indicates the error produced 4

5 Introduction In a user program in C we can use: System calls. Interface with the OS (Manual pages:2) System functions. (Manual pages:3) POXIS: System calls common to several OS (these are the ones we will see). In particular UNIX has these calls (apart it has more) 5

6 Processes: Introduction Process: minimum unit issued by the scheduler. Process consists of: – Executable program – Data associated with the program (variables, buffers, etc) – The program execution context 6
