how to read /proc/pid/status in sched.c


Hi,

I was wondering how I could read file like /proc/pid/status in sched.c which can not include user space library routines.

How to manipulate the data in such a file from kernel routines..

Thanks in advance for any input..

I am fairly sure that even if you could access '/proc/pid/status' from kernel space, you could not use that access to manipulate it. It is not an actual file in the sense of occupying disk storage; it is a virtual file whose 'contents' are provided by kernel code.

Hi,

Since I can't use FILE *fp etc to read /proc/pid/status in sched.c, how do I read that file in sched.c .I dont want to write to that file but is reading of that file possible like this. How do I do that.

Thanks in advance.

You might be able to make direct calls to the kernel module functions that implement that virtual file system. Would require some sleuthing to determine exactly what those are...
