       filefrag - report on file fragmentation


       filefrag [ -bblocksize ] [ -BeEkPsvVxX ] [ files...  ]


       filefrag  reports on how badly fragmented a particular file might be.  It makes allowances
       for indirect blocks for ext2 and ext3 file systems, but can be used on files for any  file

       The  filefrag  program initially attempts to get the extent information using FIEMAP ioctl
       which is more efficient and faster.  If FIEMAP is not supported then  filefrag  will  fall
       back to using FIBMAP.


       -B     Force  the  use  of  the older FIBMAP ioctl instead of the FIEMAP ioctl for testing

              Use blocksize in bytes, or with [KMG] suffix, up to 1GB for output instead  of  the
              file  system  blocksize.   For  compatibility with earlier versions of filefrag, if
              blocksize is unspecified it defaults to 1024 bytes.  Since blocksize is an optional
              argument, it must be added without any space after -b.

       -e     Print output in extent format, even for block-mapped files.

       -E     Display  the contents of ext4's extent status cache.  This feature is not supported
              on all kernels, and is only supported on ext4 file systems.

       -k     Use 1024-byte blocksize for output (identical to '-b1024').

       -P     Pre-load the ext4 extent status cache for the file.  This is not supported  on  all
              kernels, and is only supported on ext4 file systems.

       -s     Sync the file before requesting the mapping.

       -v     Be verbose when checking for file fragmentation.

       -V     Print version number of program and library.  If given twice, also print the FIEMAP
              flags that are understood by the current version.

       -x     Display mapping of extended attributes.

       -X     Display extent block numbers in hexadecimal format.
