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-
-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.
