NAME fsadm - utility to resize or check filesystem on a device

SYNOPSIS fsadm [options] check device

fsadm [options] resize device [new_size[BKMGTEP]]

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

OPTIONS -h --help print help message

-v --verbose be more verbose

-e --ext-offline unmount ext2/ext3/ext4 filesystem before doing resize

-f --force bypass some sanity checks

-n --dry-run print commands without running them

-y --yes answer "yes" at any prompts

new_size 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.

EXAMPLES "fsadm -e -y resize /dev/vg/test 1000M" tries to resize the filesystem on logical volume /dev/vg/test. If /dev/vg/test contains ext2/ext3/ext4 filesystem it will be unmounted prior the resize. All [y|n] questions will be answered y.

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES TMPDIR Where the temporary directory should be created.
