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
