pmem2_source_device_usc() - returns the unsafe shutdown counter value of a device
#include <libpmem2.h> struct pmem2_source; int pmem2_source_device_usc(const struct pmem2_source *source, uint64_t *usc);
The pmem2_source_device_usc() function retrieves the sum of the unsafe shutdown count(USC) values of all hardware devices backing the data source and stores it in *usc.
Please refer to libpmem2_unsafe_shutdown(7) for detailed description on how to properly consume this information.
The pmem2_source_device_usc() function returns 0 on success. If the function fails, the *usc variable content is left unmodified and a negative error code is returned.
The pmem2_source_device_usc() can fail with the following errors:
PMEM2_E_NOSUPP - the underlying platform does not expose unsafe shutdown count information.
-errno set by failing fstat(2), while trying to validate the file descriptor.
-errno set by failing ndctl_new(), while trying to initiate a new NDCTL library context.
-errno set by failing ndctl_dimm_get_dirty_shutdown(), while trying to obtain DIMM USC value.
