  • Linux 5.11 XFS Will Flag File-Systems In Need Of Repair

    Phoronix: Linux 5.11 XFS Will Flag File-Systems In Need Of Repair

    The main feature change for the XFS driver code in Linux 5.11 is adding a new "needs repair" feature flag. When the XFS code marks a file-system as needing repair, it will refuse to mount until the xfs_repair operation is run on it...

    I just noticed XFS is more than just a FS and means business:
    PHP Code:
    [~] ls /sbin grep xfs 
    fsck
    .xfs
    mkfs
    .xfs
    xfs_admin 
    xfs_bmap 
    xfs_copy 
    xfs_db 
    xfs_estimate 
    xfs_freeze 
    xfs_fsr 
    xfs_growfs 
    xfs_info 
    xfs_io 
    xfs_logprint 
    xfs_mdrestore 
    xfs_metadump 
    xfs_mkfile 
    xfs_ncheck 
    xfs_quota 
    xfs_repair 
    xfs_rtcp 
    xfs_scrub 
    xfs_scrub_all 
    xfs_spaceman

      Wonder how this plays on a fiber/SAN mount.

        Other filesystems have things like these as well, e.g. we have mkfs.ext4, fsck.ext4, dumpe2fs, e2fsck, e2image, e2label, e2undo, mke2fs, resize2fs, tune2fs. Btrfs shoves most things into the btrfs command. Furthermore, some of the tools you mentioned (at least xfs_estimate, xfs_freeze, xfs_io, xfs_mkfile) are generic and work on other filesystems as well.

          The year 2038 change is probably a bit too late. Add 10 years of upstream XFS support and 10 years of Red Hat support… Oops, it's 1903 already.

            Congrats. You just discovered the xfsprogs package that contains the tools to manage XFS Now can you find coreutils for extra credit?

              Well, not really how it works though, is it?

                XFS is really exceptional. Anyone know off-hand if there is anything missing from XFS that EXT4 has and isn't deprecating or embarrassed about?

                  Yeah, sorry for the joke. Red Hat is probably not going to support the old format in any RHEL version they plan to support past 2038 or even close to 2038.
