DUMPFS(8)                 BSD System Manager's Manual                DUMPFS(8)

NAME
     dumpfs -- dump file system information

SYNOPSIS
     dumpfs [-acFimsv] filesys | device [...]

DESCRIPTION
     dumpfs prints out detailed information about the specified filesystems.

     Options:

     -a      Print details from each alternate superblock.

     -c      Print details of each cylinder group.

     -F      Dump a file system image from a file, not a special device.

     -i      Print details of each allocated inode.

     -m      Print details of the cylinder group summary.

     -s      Print details of the superblock.

     -v      Be even more verbose.

     If none of -a, -c, -i, -m, or -s are given, then dumpfs defaults to
     -cmsv.

     dumpfs is useful mostly for finding out certain file system information
     such as the file system block size, minimum free space percentage, and
     the file system level that can be upgraded with the -c option of
     fsck_ffs(8).  All of this information is output by dumpfs -s.

HISTORY
     The dumpfs command appeared in 4.2BSD.  The -a, -c, -i, -m, and -s
     options, and the inode dump were added for NetBSD 2.0.
