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.
