       This  manual  page is part of the POSIX Programmer's Manual.  The Linux
       implementation of this interface may differ (consult the	 corresponding
       Linux  manual page for details of Linux behavior), or the interface may
       not be implemented on Linux.

       posix_typed_mem_get_info — query	 typed	memory	information  (ADVANCED

       #include <sys/mman.h>

       int posix_typed_mem_get_info(int fildes,
	   struct posix_typed_mem_info *info);

       The   posix_typed_mem_get_info()	  function   shall   return,   in  the
       posix_tmi_length field of the posix_typed_mem_info structure pointed to
       by  info, the maximum length which may be successfully allocated by the
       typed memory object designated by fildes.  This	maximum	 length	 shall
       take    into    account	  the	 flag	 POSIX_TYPED_MEM_ALLOCATE   or
       POSIX_TYPED_MEM_ALLOCATE_CONTIG specified when the typed memory	object
       represented by fildes was opened. The maximum length is dynamic; there‐
       fore, the value returned is valid only while the current mapping of the
       corresponding typed memory pool remains unchanged.

       If  fildes  represents  a  typed	 memory object opened with neither the
       flag specified, the returned value of info->posix_tmi_length is unspec‐

       The posix_typed_mem_get_info() function may return additional implemen‐
       tation-defined  information in other fields of the posix_typed_mem_info
       structure pointed to by info.

       If the memory object specified by fildes is not a typed memory  object,
       then the behavior of this function is undefined.

       Upon  successful	 completion,  the  posix_typed_mem_get_info() function
       shall return zero; otherwise,  the  corresponding  error	 status	 value
       shall be returned.

       The posix_typed_mem_get_info() function shall fail if:

       EBADF  The fildes argument is not a valid open file descriptor.

       ENODEV The  fildes  argument  is	 not connected to a memory object sup‐
	      ported by this function.

       This function shall not return an error code of [EINTR].

       The following sections are informative.



       An application that needs to allocate a	block  of  typed  memory  with
       length  dependent  upon	the  amount of memory currently available must
       either query the typed memory object to obtain the amount available, or
       repeatedly  invoke  mmap()  attempting  to guess an appropriate length.
       While the latter method is existing practice with malloc(), it is  awk‐
       ward  and  imprecise. The posix_typed_mem_get_info() function allows an
       application to immediately determine available memory. This is particu‐
       larly  important	 for  typed  memory  objects that may in some cases be
       scarce resources. Note that when	 a  typed  memory  pool	 is  a	shared
       resource,  some	form  of  mutual-exclusion  or	synchronization may be
       required while typed memory is being queried and allocated  to  prevent
       race conditions.

       The  existing  fstat()  function	 is  not suitable for this purpose. We
       realize that implementations may wish to provide	 other	attributes  of
       typed  memory  objects (for example, alignment requirements, page size,
       and so on).  The fstat() function returns  a  structure	which  is  not
       extensible  and,	 furthermore, contains substantial information that is
       inappropriate for typed memory objects.
