NAME

       fsadm — utility to resize or check filesystem on a device

SYNOPSIS

       fsadm [options] check device
       fsadm [options] resize device [new_size]

DESCRIPTION

       fsadm  utility  checks or resizes the filesystem on a device.  It tries
       to use the same API for ext2, ext3, ext4, ReiserFS and XFS filesystem.

OPTIONS

       -e|--ext-offline
              Unmount ext2/ext3/ext4 filesystem before doing resize.

       -f|--force
              Bypass some sanity checks.

       -h|--help
              Display the help text.

       -n|--dry-run
              Print commands without running them.

       -v|--verbose
              Be more verbose.

       -y|--yes
              Answer "yes" at any prompts.

       new_size[B|K|M|G|T|P|E]
              Absolute number of filesystem blocks to be in the filesystem, or
              an  absolute  size  using  a  suffix  (in  powers  of 1024).  If
              new_size is not supplied, the whole device is used.

DIAGNOSTICS

       On successful completion, the status code is 0.  A  status  code  of  2
       indicates  the operation was interrupted by the user.  A status code of
       3 indicates the  requested  check  operation  could  not  be  performed
       because  the  filesystem  is  mounted  and  does  not support an online
       fsck(8).  A status code of 1 is used for other failures.

EXAMPLES

       Resize the filesystem on logical volume /dev/vg/test to 1000 megabytes.
       If /dev/vg/test contains ext2/ext3/ext4 filesystem it will be unmounted
       prior the resize.  All [y/n] questions will be answered 'y'.

       fsadm -e -y resize /dev/vg/test 1000M

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

       TMPDIR The temporary directory  name  for  mount  points.  Defaults  to
              "/tmp".

       DM_DEV_DIR
              The  device  directory  name.  Defaults to "/dev" and must be an
              absolute path.
