filefrag reports on how badly fragmented a particular file might be.
It makes allowances for indirect blocks for ext2 and ext3
filesystems, but can be used on files for any filesystem.
The filefrag program initially attempts to get the extent information
using FIEMAP ioctl which is more efficient and faster. If FIEMAP is
not supported then filefrag will fall back to using FIBMAP.
-B Force the use of the older FIBMAP ioctl instead of the FIEMAP
ioctl for testing purposes.
Use blocksize in bytes for output instead of the filesystem
blocksize. For compatibility with earlier versions of
filefrag, if blocksize is unspecified it defaults to 1024
-e Print output in extent format, even for block-mapped files.
-k Use 1024-byte blocksize for output (identical to '-b 1024').
-s Sync the file before requesting the mapping.
-v Be verbose when checking for file fragmentation.
-x Display mapping of extended attributes.
-X Display extent block numbers in hexadecimal format.
