NAME         top

       xfs_ncheck - generate pathnames from i-numbers for XFS

SYNOPSIS         top

       xfs_ncheck [ -i ino ] ... [ -f ] [ -s ] [ -l logdev ] device
       xfs_ncheck -V

DESCRIPTION         top

       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.

OPTIONS         top

       -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.

       -l logdev
                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 security policy.

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

       -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.
