io_getevents(2) -- Linux man page
NAMEio_getevents - Read asynchronous I/O events from the completion queue
- long io_getevents (aio_context_t ctx_id, long min_nr, long nr, struct io_event *events, struct timespec *timeout);
io_getevents attempts to read at least min_nr events and up to nr events from the completion queue of the AIO context specified by ctx_id. timeout specifies the amount of time to wait for events, where a NULL timeout waits until at least min_nr events have been seen. Note that timeout is relative and will be updated if not NULL and the operation blocks.
io_getevents returns the number of events read: 0 if no events are available or < min_nr if the timeout has elapsed.
ctx_id is invalid. min_nr is out of range or nr is
out of range.
Either events or timeout is an invalid pointer.
io_getevents is not implemented on this architecture.
io_getevents is Linux specific and should not be used in programs that are intended to be portable.
The asynchronous I/O system calls first appeared in Linux 2.5, August 2002.
The asynchronous I/O system calls were written by Benjamin LaHaise.
