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

NAME
       xfs_ncheck - generate pathnames from i-numbers for XFS

SYNOPSIS
       xfs_ncheck [ -i ino ] ... [ -f ] [ -s ] [ -l logdev ] device
       xfs_ncheck -V

DESCRIPTION
       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 device
       argument, which should be the disk or  volume  device  for  the  filesystem.   Filesystems
       stored in files can also be checked, using the -f flag.

OPTIONS
       -f       Specifies  that  the filesystem image to be processed is stored in a regular file
                at device (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 logdev
                Specifies the device 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 security policy.

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

       -V       Prints the version number and exits.

       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 the xfs_db(8) "check" command may appear.

       xfs_ncheck is only useful with XFS filesystems.

SEE ALSO
       mkfs.xfs(8), xfs(5).
