AIO_SUSPEND(2) System Calls Manual AIO_SUSPEND(2)

aio_suspendsuspend until asynchronous I/O operations or timeout complete (REALTIME)

Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

#include <aio.h>

aio_suspend(const struct aiocb *const list[], int nent, const struct timespec *timeout);

The () system call suspends the calling process until at least one of the specified asynchronous I/O requests have completed, a signal is delivered, or the timeout has passed.

The list argument is an array of nent pointers to asynchronous I/O requests. Array members containing NULL will be silently ignored.

If timeout is a non-nil pointer, it specifies a maximum interval to suspend. If timeout is a nil pointer, the suspend blocks indefinitely. To effect a poll, the timeout should point to a zero-value timespec structure.

If one or more of the specified asynchronous I/O requests have completed, aio_suspend() returns 0. Otherwise, it returns -1 and sets errno to indicate the error, as enumerated below.

The aio_suspend() system call will fail if:

The timeout expired before any of the listed I/O requests completed.
The suspend was interrupted by a signal.
The list argument contains more than AIO_LISTIO_MAX asynchronous I/O requests, or at least one of the requests is not valid.

aio_cancel(2), aio_error(2), aio_return(2), aio_write(2), aio(4)

The aio_suspend() system call is expected to conform to the IEEE Std 1003.1 (“POSIX.1”) standard.

The aio_suspend() system call first appeared in FreeBSD 3.0.
