       lssu - list usage state of NILFS2 segments


       lssu [options] [device]


       lssu is a utility for displaying usage state of NILFS2 segments in device, where a segment
       is contiguous lump of disk blocks and an allocation  unit  of  NILFS2  disk  space.   When
       device is omitted, /proc/mounts is examined to find a NILFS2 file system.

       This command will fail if the device has no active mounts of a NILFS2 file system.


       -a, --all
              Do not hide clean segments.

       -h, --help
              Display help message and exit.

       -i index, --index=index
              Skip index segments at start of input.

       -l, --latest-usage
              Print usage status of the moment.

       -n lines, --lines=lines
              List only lines input segments.

       -p period, --protection-period=period
              Specify  protection  period.  This option is used when printing usage status of the
              moment (with -l option) to test if each block in segments is protected and  is  not
              reclaimable.   Optionally,  the  period  parameter  may  be  suffixed by one of the
              following units designators: ´s´, ´m´,  ´h´,  ´d´,´w´,´M´,  or  ´Y´,  for  seconds,
              minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, or years, respectively.

       -V, --version
              Display version and exit.


       Every line of the lssu output consists of the following fields:

       SEGNUM Segment number.

       DATE   Creation date.

       TIME   Creation time.

       STAT   State of the segment.  It consists of the following flags:

              a      The  segment  is  active,  meaning that it is recently created and cannot be
                     reclaimed by the garbage collector.

              d      The segment is dirty, meaning that it is in use.

              e      The segment is erroneous, meaning that it has  once  caused  an  I/O  error.
                     NILFS2 avoids allocating the segments with this flag.

              p (optional)
                     The segment is protected, meaning that garbage collection for the segment is
                     prevented for some reason,  for  instance,  the  protection  period  is  not
                     elapsed  from  its  last  modified  time,  the segment is pinned by the file
                     system, or it is erroneous and unreclaimable, etc.  This flag  is  displayed
                     when -l option is specified.

              Number of in-use blocks of the segment.

       NLIVEBLOCKS (optional)
              Number  and  ratio of in-use blocks of the moment.  This field is displayed when -l
              option is specified.
