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
              supported  for  example  for  GUID  Partition Table (GPT) or MAC
              partition 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
