SYNOPSIS         top

DESCRIPTION         top

       systemd-fsck@.service is a service responsible for file system
       checks. It is instantiated for each device that requires a file
       system check.  systemd-fsck-root.service is responsible for file
       system checks on the root file system. The root file system check is
       performed before the other file systems. Either service is enabled at
       boot if passno in /etc/fstab for the file system is set to a value
       greater than zero.

       systemd-fsck will forward file system checking progress to the
       console. If a file system check fails, emergency mode is activated,
       by isolating to emergency.target.

KERNEL COMMAND LINE         top

       systemd-fsck understands one kernel command line parameter:

       fsck.mode=
           One of "auto", "force", "skip". Controls the mode of operation.
           The default is "auto", and ensures that file system checks are
           done when the file system checker deems them necessary.  "force"
           unconditionally results in full file system checks.  "skip" skips
           any file system checks.
