xfs_ncheck - generate pathnames from i-numbers for XFS
[ -i ino
] ... [ -f
] [ -s
with no -i
arguments generates an inode number and
pathname list of all files on the given filesystem. Names of directory files
are followed by /.
. The output is not sorted in any particular order.
The filesystem to be examined is specified by the device
which should be the disk or volume device for the filesystem. Filesystems
stored in files can also be checked, using the -f
- Specifies that the filesystem image to be processed is
stored in a regular file at device (see the mkfs.xfs -d
file option). This might happen if an image copy of a
filesystem has been made into an ordinary file.
- -l logdev
- Specifies the device where the filesystem's external log
resides. Only for those filesystems which use an external log. See the
mkfs.xfs -l option, and refer to xfs(5) for a detailed
description of the XFS log.
- Limits the report to special files and files with setuserid
mode. This option may be used to detect violations of security
- -i ino
- Limits the report to only those files whose inode numbers
follow. May be given multiple times to select multiple inode numbers.
- Prints the version number and exits.
If the filesystem is seriously corrupted, or very busy and looks like it is
corrupt, a message of the form that would be generated by the xfs_db
"check" command may appear.
is only useful with XFS filesystems.
