       xfs_admin - change parameters of an XFS filesystem


       xfs_admin [ -eflpu ] [ -c 0|1 ] [ -L label ] [ -U uuid ] device


       xfs_admin uses the xfs_db(8) command to modify various parameters of a filesystem.

       Devices  that  are  mounted  cannot  be modified.  Administrators must unmount filesystems
       before xfs_admin or xfs_db(8) can convert parameters.  A number of parameters of a mounted
       filesystem can be examined and modified using the xfs_growfs(8) command.


       -e     Enables  unwritten  extent  support on a filesystem that does not already have this
              enabled (for legacy filesystems, it can't be disabled anymore at mkfs time).

       -f     Specifies that the filesystem image to be processed is stored in a regular file  at
              device (see the mkfs.xfs -d file option).

       -j     Enables version 2 log format (journal format supporting larger log buffers).

       -l     Print the current filesystem label.

       -p     Enable 32bit project identifier support (PROJID32BIT feature).

       -u     Print the current filesystem UUID (Universally Unique IDentifier).

       -c 0|1 Enable (1) or disable (0) lazy-counters in the filesystem.  This operation may take
              quite a bit of time on large filesystems as  the  entire  filesystem  needs  to  be
              scanned when this option is changed.

              With  lazy-counters  enabled,  the  superblock  is  not modified or logged on every
              change of the free-space and inode counters. Instead, enough information is kept in
              other  parts  of  the  filesystem to be able to maintain the counter values without
              needing to keep them in the superblock.  This  gives  significant  improvements  in
              performance on some configurations and metadata intensive workloads.

       -L label
              Set  the  filesystem  label  to  label.   XFS  filesystem  labels can be at most 12
              characters long; if label is longer than 12 characters, xfs_admin will truncate  it
              and print a warning message.  The filesystem label can be cleared using the special
              "--" value for label.

       -U uuid
              Set the  UUID  of  the  filesystem  to  uuid.   A  sample  UUID  looks  like  this:
              "c1b9d5a2-f162-11cf-9ece-0020afc76f16".   The  uuid may also be nil, which will set
              the filesystem UUID to the null UUID.  The uuid may also be  generate,  which  will
              generate a new UUID for the filesystem.

       The  mount(8)  manual  entry  describes how to mount a filesystem using its label or UUID,
       rather than its block special device name.
