       filefrag - report on file fragmentation


       filefrag [ -bblocksize ] [ -BeksvxX ] [ files...  ]


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

       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  for  output  instead  of  the  filesystem  blocksize.   For
              compatibility  with  earlier  versions  of filefrag, if blocksize is unspecified it
              defaults to 1024 bytes.

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

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

       -s     Sync the file before requesting the mapping.

       -v     Be verbose when checking for file fragmentation.

       -x     Display mapping of extended attributes.

       -X     Display extent block numbers in hexadecimal format.
