xfs_ncheck(8)               System Manager's Manual              xfs_ncheck(8)

       xfs_ncheck - generate pathnames from i-numbers for XFS

       xfs_ncheck [ -i ino ] ...
                 [ -s ] [ -l logdev ] xfs_special

       xfs_ncheck -f [ -i ino ] ...
                 [ -s ] [ -l logdev ] file

       xfs_ncheck  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 xfs_special argument,
       which should be the disk or volume device for the filesystem.  Filesys-
       tems stored in files can also be checked, using the -f flag.

       The options to xfs_ncheck are:

       -f       Specifies that the special device is actually a file (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       Specifies the  device  special  file  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.

       -s       Limits  the  report  to special files and files with setuserid
                mode.  This option may be used to detect violations  of  secu-
                rity policy.

       -i ino   Limits the report to only those files whose inode numbers fol-
                low.  May be given multiple times  to  select  multiple  inode

       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
       xfs_check(8) may appear.

       xfs_ncheck is only useful with XFS filesystems.
