LIBSYSEVENT(3LIB) Interface Libraries LIBSYSEVENT(3LIB)

libsysevent - system event interface library

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

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.

For a list of events, please see sysevents(3SYSEVENT). The actual events and their payload, unlike the library interfaces, are considered private to the system and subject to change at any time.

The shared object libsysevent.so.1 provides the public interfaces defined below. See Intro(3) for additional information on shared object interfaces.
