AIO_FSYNC(3P)		   POSIX Programmer's Manual		 AIO_FSYNC(3P)

       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.

       aio_fsync - asynchronous file synchronization (REALTIME)

       #include <aio.h>

       int aio_fsync(int op, struct aiocb *aiocbp);

       The aio_fsync() function shall asynchronously force all I/O  operations
       associated  with	 the  file indicated by the file descriptor aio_fildes
       member of the aiocb structure referenced by  the	 aiocbp	 argument  and
       queued  at  the time of the call to aio_fsync() to the synchronized I/O
       completion state. The function call shall return when the  synchroniza‐
       tion  request  has been initiated or queued to the file or device (even
       when the data cannot be synchronized immediately).

       If op is O_DSYNC, all currently queued I/O  operations  shall  be  com‐
       pleted as if by a call to fdatasync(); that is, as defined for synchro‐
       nized I/O data integrity completion. If op  is  O_SYNC,	all  currently
       queued  I/O  operations	shall be completed as if by a call to fsync();
       that is, as defined for synchronized I/O file integrity completion.  If
       the   aio_fsync()  function  fails,  or	if  the	 operation  queued  by
       aio_fsync() fails, then, as for fsync()	and  fdatasync(),  outstanding
       I/O operations are not guaranteed to have been completed.

       If aio_fsync() succeeds, then it is only the I/O that was queued at the
       time of the call to aio_fsync() that is guaranteed to be forced to  the
       relevant completion state. The completion of subsequent I/O on the file
       descriptor is not guaranteed to be completed in a synchronized fashion.

       The aiocbp argument refers to an asynchronous I/O control  block.   The
       aiocbp value may be used as an argument to aio_error() and aio_return()
       in order to determine the error status and return status, respectively,
       of  the asynchronous operation while it is proceeding. When the request
       is queued, the error status for the operation is	 [EINPROGRESS].	  When
       all  data  has been successfully transferred, the error status shall be
       reset to reflect the success or failure of the operation.  If the oper‐
       ation  does  not complete successfully, the error status for the opera‐
       tion shall be set to  indicate  the  error.   The  aio_sigevent	member
       determines  the asynchronous notification to occur as specified in Sig‐
       nal Generation and Delivery when all operations have achieved  synchro‐
       nized  I/O completion. All other members of the structure referenced by
       aiocbp are ignored.  If the control block referenced by aiocbp  becomes
       an  illegal  address  prior  to	asynchronous  I/O completion, then the
       behavior is undefined.

       If the aio_fsync() function fails or aiocbp indicates an	 error	condi‐
       tion, data is not guaranteed to have been successfully transferred.

       The  aio_fsync()	 function  shall  return  the  value  0 to the calling
       process if the I/O operation is	successfully  queued;  otherwise,  the
       function shall return the value -1 and set errno to indicate the error.

       The aio_fsync() function shall fail if:

       EAGAIN The  requested asynchronous operation was not queued due to tem‐
	      porary resource limitations.

       EBADF  The aio_fildes member of the aiocb structure referenced  by  the
	      aiocbp argument is not a valid file descriptor open for writing.

       EINVAL This  implementation  does not support synchronized I/O for this

       EINVAL A value of op other than O_DSYNC or O_SYNC was specified.

       In the event that any of the queued I/O	operations  fail,  aio_fsync()
       shall  return  the error condition defined for read() and write().  The
       error is returned in the error  status  for  the	 asynchronous  fsync()
       operation, which can be retrieved using aio_error().

       The following sections are informative.


       The  aio_fsync()	 function is part of the Asynchronous Input and Output
       option and need not be available on all implementations.
