SYNOPSIS

ffsinfo [-g cylinder_group] [-i inode] [-l level] [-o outfile] special | file

DESCRIPTION

The ffsinfo utility extends the dumpfs(8) utility.

The output is appended to the file outfile. Also expect the output file to be rather large. Up to 2 percent of the size of the specified file system is not uncommon.

The following options are available:

-g cylinder_group
This restricts the dump to information about this cylinder group only. Here 0 means the first cylinder group and -1 the last one.
-i inode
This restricts the dump to information about this particular inode only. Here the minimum acceptable inode is 2. If this option is omitted but a cylinder group is defined then only inodes within that cylinder group are dumped.
-l level
The level of detail which will be dumped. This value defaults to 255 and is the "bitwise or" of the following table:

0x001 initial superblock
0x002 superblock copies in each cylinder group
0x004 cylinder group summary in initial cylinder group
0x008 cylinder group information
0x010 inode allocation bitmap
0x020 fragment allocation bitmap
0x040 cluster maps and summary
0x100 inode information
0x200 indirect block dump
-o outfile
This sets the output filename where the dump is written to, and must be specified. If
is provided, output will be sent to stdout.

EXAMPLES

ffsinfo -o /var/tmp/ffsinfo -l 1023 /dev/vinum/testvol

will dump /dev/vinum/testvol to /var/tmp/ffsinfo with all available information.
