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