libsysevent(3LIB)

Name

libsysevent - system event interface library

Synopsis

cc [ flag... ] file... –lsysevent [ library... ] 
#include <libsysevent.h>

Description

Functions in this library extract specific identifier, publisher, and attribute information from a system event (sysevent) handle, defined as sysevent_t, and allow privileged user-level applications to queue system events for delivery to the system event daemon, syseventd(8).

The libsysevent interfaces do not work at all in non-global zones.
