XFS(5)                    FreeBSD File Formats Manual                   XFS(5)

NAME
     xfs - XFS file system

SYNOPSIS
     To link into the kernel:

           options XFS

     To load as a kernel loadable module:

           kldload xfs

DESCRIPTION
     The xfs driver will permit the FreeBSD kernel to access XFS file systems.

EXAMPLES
     To mount a xfs volume located on /dev/ad1s1:

           mount -t xfs -o ro /dev/ad1s1 /mnt

SEE ALSO
     nmount(2), unmount(2), fstab(5), mount(8)

NOTES
     The sysutils/xfsprogs port contains the mkfs.xfs utility for creating XFS
     file systems, and also other utilities for analyzing, and repairing XFS
     file systems.

HISTORY
     XFS was originally written by SGI for the IRIX operating system.  SGI
     ported XFS to Linux, and released the source code under the GNU Public
     License.  For more details, see: http://oss.sgi.com/projects/xfs

     The port to FreeBSD was based on the Linux port, and started by Russell
     Cattelan <cattelan@xfs.org>, Alexander Kabaev <kan@FreeBSD.org>, and
     Craig Rodrigues <rodrigc@FreeBSD.org>.

     The xfs file system support first appeared in FreeBSD 7.0.

AUTHORS
     This manual page was written by Craig Rodrigues <rodrigc@FreeBSD.org>.

CAVEATS
     The port of XFS to FreeBSD is currently incomplete.  Only read-only
     access is supported for XFS volumes.  Writing to a volume is not
     supported.

     The -p flag to mkfs.xfs can be used to create an XFS file system which is
     populated with files and other metadata.  This can be used to quickly
     create a read-only file system which can be tested on FreeBSD.
