Introduction to XFS

The XFS file system is a journaling file system developed by SGI which works particularly well for large files systems. The XFS package contains various utilities for managing XFS partitions.

Short Descriptions

fsck.xfs simply exits with a zero status, since XFS partitions are checked at mount time.
mkfs.xfs constructs an XFS file system.
xfs_admin changes the parameters of an XFS file system.
xfs_bmap prints block mapping for an XFS file.
xfs_check checks XFS file system consistency.
xfs_copy copies the contents of an XFS file system to one or more targets in parallel.
xfs_db is used to debug an XFS file system.
xfs_freeze suspends access to an XFS file system.
xfs_growfs expands an XFS file system.
xfs_info is equivalent to invoking xfs_growfs, but specifying that no change to the file system is to be made.
xfs_io is a debugging tool like xfs_db, but is aimed at examining the regular file I/O path rather than the raw XFS volume itself.
xfs_logprint prints the log of an XFS file system.
xfs_mkfile creates an XFS file, padded with zeroes by default.
xfs_ncheck generates pathnames from inode numbers for an XFS file system.
xfs_quota is a utility for reporting and editing various aspects of filesystem quota.
xfs_repair repairs corrupt or damaged XFS file systems.
xfs_rtcp copies a file to the real-time partition on an XFS file system.
libhandle.so contains functions to map filesystem handles to a corresponding open file descriptor for that filesystem.
