Displays the characteristics of file systems.
lsfs [ -q ] [ -c | -l ] [ -a | -v VfsType | -u MountGroup| [FileSystem...] ]
The lsfs command displays characteristics of file systems, such as mount points, automatic mounts, permissions, and file system size. The FileSystem parameter reports on a specific file system. The following subsets can be queried for a listing of characteristics:
The lsfs command displays additional Journaled File System (JFS) or Enhanced Journaled File System (JFS2) characteristics if the -q flag is specified.
You can use a Web-based System Manager File Systems application (wsm fs fast path) to run this command. You could also use the System Management Interface Tool (SMIT) smit lsfs fast path to run this command.
JFS is POWER-based platform only, and JFS2 is common to both platforms.
|-a||Lists all file systems (default).|
|-c||Specifies that the output should be in colon format.|
|-l||Specifies that the output should be in list format.|
|-q||Queries the logical volume manager (LVM) for the logical volume size (in
512-byte blocks). Additional information is provided for JFS and JFS2
file systems. Queries the JFS superblock for the file system size, the
fragment size, the compression algorithm (if any), and the number of bytes per
i-node (nbpi). Queries the JFS2 superblock for the file system size,
the file system block size, and sparse file support.
This information is not reported for other virtual file system types. It is displayed in addition to other file system characteristics reported by the lsfs command.
|-u MountGroup||Reports on all file systems of a specified mount group.|
|-v VfsType||Reports on all file systems of a specified type.|
|/etc/filesystems||Lists the known file systems and defines their characteristics.|
The chfs command, crfs command, rmfs command.
