IO_SUBMIT(2)               Linux Programmer's Manual              IO_SUBMIT(2)



NAME
       io_submit - submit asynchronous I/O blocks for processing

SYNOPSIS
       #include <libaio.h>

       int io_submit(aio_context_t ctx_id, long nr, struct iocb **iocbpp);

       Link with -laio.

DESCRIPTION
       io_submit()  queues  nr I/O request blocks for processing in the AIO context ctx_id.  iocbpp should be an array
       of nr AIO control blocks, which will be submitted to context ctx_id.

RETURN VALUE
       On success, io_submit() returns the number of iocbs submitted (which may be 0 if nr is zero).  For the  failure
       return, see NOTES.

ERRORS
       EAGAIN Insufficient resources are available to queue any iocbs.

       EBADF  The file descriptor specified in the first iocb is invalid.

       EFAULT One of the data structures points to invalid data.

       EINVAL The aio_context specified by ctx_id is invalid.  nr is less than 0.  The iocb at *iocbpp[0] is not prop-
              erly initialized, or the operation specified is invalid for the file descriptor in the iocb.

       ENOSYS io_submit() is not implemented on this architecture.

VERSIONS
       The asynchronous I/O system calls first appeared in Linux 2.5, August 2002.

CONFORMING TO
       io_submit() is Linux-specific and should not be used in programs that are intended to be portable.

NOTES
       Glibc does not provide a wrapper function for this system call.

       The wrapper provided in libaio for io_submit() does not follow the usual C library conventions  for  indicating
       error: on error it returns a negated error number (the negative of one of the values listed in ERRORS).  If the
       system call is invoked via syscall(2), then the return value follows the usual conventions  for  indicating  an
       error: -1, with errno set to a (positive) value that indicates the error.
