       mkfs.f2fs  [  -a  heap-based-allocation  ]  [  -l  volume-label  ] [ -o
       overprovision-ratio-percentage ] [ -s #-of-segments-per-section ] [  -z

       device

DESCRIPTION

       mkfs.f2fs is used to create a f2fs  file  system  (usually  in  a  disk
       partition).   device  is  the  special file corresponding to the device
       (e.g.  /dev/sdXX).

       The exit code returned by mkfs.f2fs is 0 on success and 1 on failure.

OPTIONS

       -a heap-based-allocation
              Specify 1 or 0 to enable/disable  heap  based  block  allocation
              policy.   If  the  value is equal to 1, each of active log areas
              are initially assigned separately according to the whole  volume
              size.  The default value is 1.

       -l volume-label
              Specify the volume label to the partition mounted as F2FS.

       -o overprovision-ratio-percentage
              Specify  the  percentage  over the volume size for overprovision
              area. This area  is  hidden  to  users,  and  utilized  by  F2FS
              cleaner.  If  not  specified,  the  best number will be assigned
              automatically accoring to the partition size.

       -s #-of-segments-per-section
              Specify the number of segments per section. A  section  consists
              of  multiple  consecutive  segments,  and is the unit of garbage
              collection.  The default number is 1, which means one segment is
              assigned to a section.

       -z #-of-sections-per-zone
              Specify  the  number  of  sections  per zone. A zone consists of
              multiple sections.  F2FS allocates segments for active logs with
              separated  zones  as much as possible.  The default number is 1,
              which means a zone consists of one section.

       -e extension-list
              Specify a file extension list in order f2fs  to  treat  them  as
              cold  files.   The data of files having those extensions will be
              stored to the cold log.   The  default  list  includes  most  of
              multimedia  file  extensions such as jpg, gif, mpeg, mkv, and so
              on.

       -d debug-level
              Specify the level of debugging options.  The default  number  is
              0, which shows basic debugging messages.
