Subclass of CIM_LogicalElement
The UnixFile class holds properties that are valid for various subclasses of LogicalFile, in a Unix environment. This is defined as a separate and unique class since it is applicable to Unix files, directories, etc. It is associated via a FileIdentity relationship to these subclasses of LogicalFile. Unless this approach of creating and associating a separate class is used, it is necessary to subclass each of the inheritance hierarchies under LogicalFile, duplicating the properties in this class. The referenced _PC* and _POSIX* constants are defined in unistd.h. Some properties indicate whether the UNIX implementation support a feature such as asynchronous I/O or priority I/O. If supported, sysconf returns the value as defined in the appropriate header file such as unistd.h. If a feature is not supported, then pathconf returns a -1. In this case, the corresponding property should be returned without any value.
Indicates whether the associated file has setuid permissions.
The scoping ComputerSystem’s Name.
An Identifer that uniquely describes the owner of this file.
Indicates whether asynchronous input or output operations may be performed for the associated file.
Maximum number of bytes in a filename, not including terminating null.
The scoping FileSystem’s CreationClassName.
Indicates whether synchronised input or output operations may be performed for the associated file.
The scoping LogicalFile’s CreationClassName.
An identifier that describes the group that owns this file.
Indicates whether prioritized input or output operations may be performed for the associated file.
The scoping FileSystem’s Name.
Indicates whether the associated file has setgid permissions.
The scoping LogicalFile’s Name.
Maximum number of bytes in a pathname, including the terminating null character.
Count of the number of names for this file.
Maximum number of links to a single file.
Indicates whether pathname components longer than NameMax generate an error.
File Inode number, as printed by “ls -i”.
The time that the Inode was last modified. This includes the Inode creation time, state modification, and etc.
The scoping ComputerSystem’s CreationClassName.
The use of chown() is restricted to a process with appropriate privileges. chown() is used to change the group ID of a file. The group ID can be changed to the effective group ID or one of its supplementary group IDs.
Indicates restricted deletion for directories, or possible implementation defined properties for executable files. For directories this is known as the sticky bit.
