NAME

rctl_add_rule, rctl_get_limits rctl_get_racct, rctl_get_rules, rctl_remove_rule — manipulate and query the resource limits database

LIBRARY

Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

SYNOPSIS

#include <sys/rctl.h> int rctl_add_rule(const char *inbufp, size_t inbuflen, char *outbufp, size_t outbuflen); int rctl_get_limits(const char *inbufp, size_t inbuflen, char *outbufp, size_t outbuflen); int rctl_get_racct(const char *inbufp, size_t inbuflen, char *outbufp, size_t outbuflen); int rctl_get_rules(const char *inbufp, size_t inbuflen, char *outbufp, size_t outbuflen); int rctl_remove_rule(const char *inbufp, size_t inbuflen, char *outbufp, size_t outbuflen);

DESCRIPTION

These system calls are used to manipulate and query the resource limits database. For all functions, inbuflen refers to the length of the buffer pointed to by inbufp and outbuflen refers to the length of the buffer pointed to by outbufp. The rctl_add_rule() function adds the rule pointed to by inbufp to the resource limits data‐ base. The outbufp and outbuflen arguments are unused. Rule format is as described in rctl(8), with exceptions noted in the RULES AND FILTERS section. The rctl_get_limits() function returns in outbufp a comma-separated list of rules that apply to the process that matches the filter specified in inbufp. This includes rules with a sub‐ ject of the process itself as well as rules with a different subject (such as user or login‐ class) that apply to the process. The rctl_get_racct() function returns resource usage information for a given subject. The subject is specified by passing a filter in inbufp. Filter syntax is as described in rctl(8), with exceptions noted in the RULES AND FILTERS section. A comma-separated list of resources and the amount used of each by the specified subject is returned in outbufp. The resource and amount is formatted as "resource=amount". The rctl_get_rules() function returns in outbufp a comma-separated list of rules from the resource limits database that match the filter passed in inbufp. Filter syntax is as described in rctl(8), with exceptions noted in the RULES AND FILTERS section. A filter of :: may be passed to return all rules. The rctl_remove_rule() function removes all rules matching the filter passed in inbufp from the resource limits database. Filter syntax is as described in rctl(8), with exceptions noted in the RULES AND FILTERS section. outbufp and outbuflen are unused.

RULES AND FILTERS

This section explains how the rule and filter format described in rctl(8) differs from the format passed to the system calls themselves. The rctl tool provides several conveniences that the system calls do not. When using the system call: - The subject must be fully specified. For example, abbreviating ‘user’ to ‘u’ is not acceptable. - User and group IDs must be numeric. For example, ‘root’ must be expressed as ‘0’. - Units are not permitted on resource amounts. For example, a quantity of 1024 bytes must be expressed as ‘1024’ and not ‘1k’.

RETURN VALUES

Upon successful completion, the value 0 is returned; otherwise the value -1 is returned and the global variable errno is set to indicate the error.

ERRORS

The rctl system calls may fail if: [ENOSYS] RACCT/RCTL support is not present in the kernel or the kern.racct.enable sysctl is 0. [EINVAL] The rule or filter passed in inbufp is invalid. [EPERM] User has insufficient privileges to carry out the requested operation. [E2BIG] inbufp or outbufp are too large. [ESRCH] No process matched the provided rule or filter. [ENAMETOOLONG] The loginclass or jail name specified is too long. [ERANGE] The rule amount is outside of the allowable range or outbufp is too small. [EOPNOTSUPP] The requested operation is not supported for the given rule or filter. [EFAULT] inbufp or outbufp refer to invalid addresses.
