e2freefrag


SYNOPSIS
       e2freefrag [ -c chunk_kb ] [ -h ] filesys


DESCRIPTION
       e2freefrag  is used to report free space fragmentation on ext2/3/4 file
       systems.  filesys is  the  filesystem  device  name  (e.g.   /dev/hdc1,
       /dev/md0).   The e2freefrag program will scan the block bitmap informa-
       tion to check how many  free  blocks  are  present  as  contiguous  and
       aligned  free  space.  The percentage of contiguous free blocks of size
       and of alignment chunk_kb is reported.   It  also  displays  the  mini-
       mum/maximum/average  free  chunk  size  in the filesystem, along with a
       histogram of all free chunks.  This information can be  used  to  gauge
       the level of free space fragmentation in the filesystem.

OPTIONS
       -c chunk_kb
              If  a  chunk  size  is specified, then e2freefrag will print how
              many free chunks of size chunk_kb  are  available  in  units  of
              kilobytes  (Kb).   The  chunk size must be a power of two and be
              larger than filesystem block size.

       -h     Print the usage of the program.
