fsck.xfs(8)                System Manager's Manual               fsck.xfs(8)

NAME         top

       fsck.xfs - do nothing, successfully

SYNOPSIS         top

       fsck.xfs [ filesys ... ]

DESCRIPTION         top

       fsck.xfs is called by the generic Linux fsck(8) program at startup to
       check and repair an XFS filesystem.  XFS is a journaling filesystem
       and performs recovery at mount(8) time if necessary, so fsck.xfs
       simply exits with a zero exit status.

       If you wish to check the consistency of an XFS filesystem, or repair
       a damaged or corrupt XFS filesystem, see xfs_repair(8).

       However, the system administrator can force fsck.xfs to run
       xfs_repair(8) at boot time by creating a /forcefsck file or booting
       the system with "fsck.mode=force" on the kernel command line.
