xfs_ncheck(8)		    System Manager's Manual		 xfs_ncheck(8)

       xfs_ncheck - generate pathnames from i-numbers for XFS

       xfs_ncheck [ -i ino ] ... [ -f ]	[ -s ] [ -l logdev ] device
       xfs_ncheck -V

       xfs_ncheck  with	no -i arguments	generates an inode number and pathname
       list of all files on the	given filesystem. Names	of directory files are
       followed	by /..	The output is not sorted in any	particular order.  The
       filesystem to be	examined is specified by the  device  argument,	 which
       should  be  the	disk or	volume device for the filesystem.  Filesystems
       stored in files can also	be checked, using the -f flag.

       -f	Specifies that the filesystem image to be processed is	stored
		in a regular file at device (see the mkfs.xfs -d file option).
		This might happen if an	image copy of a	 filesystem  has  been
		made into an ordinary file.

       -l logdev
		Specifies  the	device where the filesystem's external log re-
		sides.	Only for those filesystems which use an	external  log.
		See the	mkfs.xfs -l option, and	refer to xfs(5)	for a detailed
		description of the XFS log.

       -s	Limits the report to special files and	files  with  setuserid
		mode.	This  option may be used to detect violations of secu-
		rity policy.

       -i ino	Limits the report to only those	files whose inode numbers fol-
		low.   May  be	given  multiple	times to select	multiple inode

       -V	Prints the version number and exits.

       If the filesystem is seriously corrupted, or very busy and  looks  like
       it  is  corrupt,	 a  message of the form	that would be generated	by the
       xfs_db(8) "check" command may appear.

       xfs_ncheck is only useful with XFS filesystems.

       mkfs.xfs(8), xfs(5).
