MINCORE(2) System Calls Manual MINCORE(2)

determine residency of memory pages

#include <sys/mman.h>
mincore(void *addr, size_t len, char *vec);

The mincore() system call allows a process to obtain information about whether pages are core resident. Here the current core residency of the pages is returned in the character array vec, with a value of 1 meaning that the page is in-core.

Upon successful completion, the value 0 is returned; otherwise the value -1 is returned and the global variable errno is set to indicate the error.
