NAME btrfs-inspect-internal - query various internal information
SYNOPSIS btrfs inspect-internal <subcommand> <args>
DESCRIPTION This command group provides an interface to query internal information. The functionality ranges from a simple UI to an ioctl or a more complex query that assembles the result from several internal structures. The latter usually requires calls to privileged ioctls.
SUBCOMMAND inode-resolve [-v] <ino> <path> (needs root privileges) resolve paths to all files with given inode number ino in a given subvolume at path, ie. all hardlinks Options -v verbose mode, print count of returned paths and ioctl() return value logical-resolve [-Pv] [-s <bufsize>] <logical> <path> (needs root privileges) resolve paths to all files at given logical address in the linear filesystem space Options -P skip the path resolving and print the inodes instead -v verbose mode, print count of returned paths and all ioctl() return values -s <bufsize> set internal buffer for storing the file names to bufsize, default is 4096, maximum 64k min-dev-size [options] <path> (needs root privileges) return the minimum size the device can be shrunk to, without performing any resize operation, this may be useful before executing the actual resize operation Options --id <id> specify the device id to query, default is 1 if this option is not used rootid <path> for a given file or directory, return the containing tree root id, for a subvolume itself return it’s own tree id (ie. subvol id) Note The result is undefined for the so-called empty subvolumes (identified by inode number 2), but such subvolume does not contain any files anyway subvolid-resolve <subvolid> <path> (needs root privileges) resolve the absolute path of a the subvolume id subvolid
EXIT STATUS btrfs inspect-internal returns a zero exit status if it succeeds. Non zero is returned in case of failure.
