NAME

       btrfs-property - get/set/list properties for given btrfs object.

SYNOPSIS

       btrfs property <subcommand> <args>

DESCRIPTION

       btrfs property is used to get/set/list property for given btrfs object.
       See the description of get subcommand for more information about both
       btrfs object and property.

       btrfs property provides an unified and user-friendly method to tune
       different btrfs properties instead of using the traditional method like
       chattr(1) or lsattr(1).

SUBCOMMAND

       get [-t <type>] <object> [<name>]
           Gets a property from a btrfs object.

           A btrfs object, which is set by <object>, can be a btrfs filesystem
           itself, a btrfs subvolume, an inode(file or directory) inside
           btrfs, or a device on which a btrfs exists.

           The -t <type> option can be used to explicitly specify what type of
           object you meant. This is only needed when a property could be set
           for more then one object type.

           Possible types are s[ubvol], f[ilesystem], i[node] and d[evice].

           Set the name of property by <name>. If no <name> is specified, all
           properties for the given object are printed.  <name> is one of the
           followings.

           ro
               read-only flag of subvolume: true or false

           label
               label of device

           compression
               compression setting for an inode: lzo, zlib, or "" (empty
               string)

       list [-t <type>] <object>
           Lists available properties with their descriptions for the given
           object.

           See the description of get subcommand for the meaning of each
           option.

       set [-t <type>] <object> <name> <value>
           Sets a property on a btrfs object.

           See the description of get subcommand for the meaning of each
           option.

EXIT STATUS

       btrfs property returns a zero exit status if it succeeds. Non zero is
       returned in case of failure.
