NAME         top

       xfs_bmap - print block mapping for an XFS file

SYNOPSIS         top

       xfs_bmap [ -adelpv ] [ -n num_extents ] file
       xfs_bmap -V

DESCRIPTION         top

       xfs_bmap prints the map of disk blocks used by files in an XFS
       filesystem.  The map lists each extent used by the file, as well
       as regions in the file that do not have any corresponding blocks
       (holes).  Each line of the listings takes the following form:

              extent: [startoffset..endoffset]: startblock..endblock

       Holes are marked by replacing the startblock..endblock with hole.
       All the file offsets and disk blocks are in units of 512-byte
       blocks, no matter what the filesystem's block size is.

OPTIONS         top

       -a     If this option is specified, information about the file's
              attribute fork is printed instead of the default data

       -e     If this option is used, xfs_bmap obtains all delayed
              allocation extents, and does not flush dirty pages to disk
              before querying extent data. With the -v option, the flags
              column will show which extents have not yet been

       -l     If this option is used, then

                   <nblocks>  blocks

              will be appended to each line.  nblocks is the length of
              the extent described on the line in units of 512-byte

              This flag has no effect if the -v option is used.

       -n num_extents
              If this option is given, xfs_bmap will display at most
              num_extents extents. In the absence of -n, xfs_bmap will
              display all extents in the file.

       -p     If this option is used, xfs_bmap obtains all unwritten
              (preallocated) extents that do not contain written data.
              With the -v option, the flags column will show which
              extents are preallocated/unwritten.

       -v     Shows verbose information. When this flag is specified,
              additional AG specific information is appended to each
              line in the following form:

                   agno (startagoffset..endagoffset) nblocks flags

              A second -v option will print out the flags legend.

       -V     Prints the version number and exits.
