NAME
       findfs - find a filesystem by label or UUID

SYNOPSIS
       findfs NAME=value

DESCRIPTION
       findfs  will  search  the  block  devices  in  the system looking for a
       filesystem or partition with specified  tag.  The  currently  supported
       tags are:

       LABEL=<label>
              Specifies filesystem label.

       UUID=<uuid>
              Specifies filesystem UUID.

       PARTUUID=<uuid>
              Specifies partition UUID. This partition identifier is supported
              for example for GUID  Partition  Table (GPT) partition tables.

       PARTLABEL=<label>
              Specifies partition label (name). The partition labels are  sup-
              ported  for example for GUID Partition Table (GPT) or MAC parti-
              tion tables.

       If the filesystem or partition  is  found,  the  device  name  will  be
       printed on stdout.

       The  complete overview about filesystems and partitions you can get for
       example by

              lsblk --fs

              partx --show <disk>

              blkid

EXIT STATUS
              0      success
              1      label or uuid cannot be found
              2      usage error, wrong number of arguments or unknown option
