NAME

p_cansee – determine visibility of a process

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

#include <sys/param.h>
#include <sys/proc.h>

int
p_cansee(struct thread *td, struct proc *p);

DESCRIPTION

This function can be used to determine if a given process p is visible to the thread td, where the notion of "visibility" may be read as "awareness of existence".

The function is implemented using cr_cansee(9), and the dependencies on sysctl(8) variables documented in the cr_cansee(9) manual page apply.

RETURN VALUES

The p_cansee() function returns 0 if the process denoted by p is visible by thread td, or a non-zero error return value otherwise.

ERRORS

[ESRCH]
  Process p is not visible to thread td as determined by cr_cansee(9).
[ESRCH]
  Thread td has been jailed and process p does not belong to the same jail as td.
[ESRCH]
  The MAC subsystem denied visibility.
