Please give me some inoformation about how to use asynchronous I/O
functions properly(aio_read,aio_write etc.) in Unix.I am using HP-UX 10.30 .
Are there  any restrictions applicable  to aio related functions.I tried
one simple program using files & got the following error.

Unsupported file system operation(ENOSYS)
     
If possible please send me a sample code to enable me to try a simple
example using asynchronous I/O.

Please help

Regards

try "man 5 ioctl", and read some other (referred) man pages.

Concerning your ENOSYS, which call generated this error?

Can you share your simple program that generated this ENOSYS?
Preferable with an indication which call generated the error

You use Kernel Asynchronous IO (KAIO) you need to enable this specifically. This is done by:

1) Check KAIO driver "asyncdsk" is loaded into the kernel
2) su
   mknod /dev/async c 101 1
   chmod 0666 /dev/async

If you dont have root permissions, you are stuck.

This question was awarded, but never cleared due to the JSP-500 errors of that time.  It was "stuck" against userID -1 versus the intended expert whom you awarded.  This corrects the problem and the expert will now receive these points; points verified.
