    Command:

    io_setup

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           #include <linux/aio_abi.h>          /* Defines needed types */
    
           int io_setup(unsigned nr_events, aio_context_t *ctx_idp);
    
           Note: There is no glibc wrapper for this system call; see NOTES.
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           The io_setup() system call creates an asynchronous I/O context suitable
           for concurrently processing nr_events operations.  The ctx_idp argument
           must  not point to an AIO context that already exists, and must be ini-
           tialized to 0 prior to the call.  On successful  creation  of  the  AIO
           context, *ctx_idp is filled in with the resulting handle.
    
    
    

    RETURN VALUE

           On success, io_setup() returns 0.  For the failure return, see NOTES.
    
    
    

    ERRORS

           EAGAIN The  specified  nr_events  exceeds the user's limit of available
                  events, as defined in /proc/sys/fs/aio-max-nr.
    
           EFAULT An invalid pointer is passed for ctx_idp.
    
           EINVAL ctx_idp is not initialized, or the specified  nr_events  exceeds
                  internal limits.  nr_events should be greater than 0.
    
           ENOMEM Insufficient kernel resources are available.
    
           ENOSYS io_setup() is not implemented on this architecture.
    
    
    

    VERSIONS

           The asynchronous I/O system calls first appeared in Linux 2.5.
    
    
    

    CONFORMING TO

           io_setup()  is  Linux-specific  and should not be used in programs that
           are intended to be portable.
    
    
    

    NOTES

           Glibc does not provide a wrapper function for this  system  call.   You
           could  invoke  it  using syscall(2).  But instead, you probably want to
           use the io_setup() wrapper function provided by libaio.
    
           Note that the libaio wrapper function uses a  different  type  (io_con-
           text_t *)  for the ctx_idp argument.  Note also that the libaio wrapper
           does not follow the usual C library conventions for indicating  errors:
           on  error it returns a negated error number (the negative of one of the
           values  listed  in  ERRORS).   If  the  system  call  is  invoked   via
           syscall(2),  then  the  return  value follows the usual conventions for
           indicating an error: -1, with errno set  to  a  (positive)  value  that
           indicates the error.
