- limit information for Service Configuration Facility
cc [ flag… ] file… -lscf [ library… ] #include <libscf.h> ssize_t scf_limit(uint32_t name);
The scf_limit() function returns information about implementation-defined limits in the service configuration facility. These limits are generally maximum lengths for various strings. The values returned do not change during the execution of a program, but they should not be cached between executions.
The available values for name are:
Return the maximum length of an FMRI the service configuration facility accepts.
Return the maximum length for property group types in the service configuration facility.
Return the maximum length for names in the service configuration facility. This value does not include space for the required terminating null byte.
Return the maximum string length a scf_value_t can hold, not including the terminating null byte.
Lengths do not include space for the required terminating null byte.
Upon successful completion, scf_limit() returns the requested value. Otherwise, it returns -1.
The scf_limit() function will fail if:
The name argument is not a recognized request.
The scf_error(3SCF) function can be used to retrieve the error value.
