NAME

fsadm - utility to resize or check filesystem on a device

SYNOPSIS

fsdam [options] check device

fsdam [options] resize device [new_size[BKMGTEP]]

DESCRIPTION

fsadm utility resizes or checks the filesystem on a device. It tries to use the same API for ext2/ext3/ext4, ReiserFS and XFS filesystem.

OPTIONS

TagDescription
-h --help — print help message
-v --verbose
  — be more verbose
-e --ext-offline
  — unmount ext2/ext3/ext4 filesystem before doing resize
-f --force
  — bypass some sanity checks
-n --dry-run
  — print commands without running them
-y --yes — answer "yes" at any prompts
new_size
  — Absolute number of filesystem blocks to be in the filesystem, or an absolute size using a suffix (in powers of 1024). If new_size is not supplied, the whole device is used.

EXAMPLES

"fsadm -e -y resize /dev/vg/test 1000M" tries to resize the filesystem on logical volume /dev/vg/test. If /dev/vg/test contains ext2/ext3/ext4 filesystem it will be unmounted prior the resize. All [y|n] questions will be answered ’y’.

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

TagDescription
TMPDIR Where the temporary directory should be created.
