VCOUNT(9) MidnightBSD Kernel Developer’s Manual VCOUNT(9)

NAME

vcount, count_dev — get total number of references to a device

SYNOPSIS

#include <sys/param.h>
#include <sys/time.h>
#include <sys/conf.h>
#include <sys/vnode.h>

int

vcount(struct vnode *vp);

int

count_dev(dev_t dev);

DESCRIPTION

vcount() is used to get the number of references to a particular device. It allows for the fact that multiple vnodes may reference the same device. count_dev() does the same thing as vcount(), but takes a dev_t rather than a struct vnode pointer as an argument.

RETURN VALUES

vcount() and count_dev() both return the number of references to the device.
