 NAME
      getext (vxfs) - get extent attributes

 SYNOPSIS
      /usr/sbin/getext [-F vxfs] [-V] [-f] [-s] file...

 DESCRIPTION
      getext displays extent attribute information associated with a set of
      files.

    Options
	   -F vxfs	  Specify the VxFS file system type.

	   -V		  Echo the completed command line, but do not
			  execute the command.	The command line is
			  generated by incorporating the user-specified
			  options.  This option allows the user to verify
			  the command line.

	   -f		  Do not print the filenames for which extent
			  attributes are displayed.

	   -s		  Do not print output for files that do not have
			  fixed extent sizes or reservations.

 OUTPUT
      The following example shows a file with a block size of 1024 bytes, 36
      blocks reserved, a fixed extent size of 3 blocks, and all extents
      aligned to 3 block boundaries:

	   file1:   Bsize  1024	 Reserve  36  Extent Size  3  align noextend

      The file size cannot be extended once the current reservation is
      exhausted.  Reservations and fixed extent sizes are allocated in units
      of the file system block size.

 NOTES
      Only the align and noextend allocation flags (set through setext(1M)
      or the VX_SETEXT ioctl) are persistent attributes of the file and
      therefore visible via getext or the VX_GETEXT ioctl.  trim is also
      visible, although it is cleared and the reservation is reduced on the
      final close of the file.
