NAME

   findfs - find a filesystem by label or UUID

SYNOPSIS

   findfs NAME=value

DESCRIPTION

   findfs  will  search  the  block  devices  in  the system looking for a
   filesystem or partition with specified  tag.  The  currently  supported
   tags are:

   LABEL=<label>
          Specifies filesystem label.

   UUID=<uuid>
          Specifies filesystem UUID.

   PARTUUID=<uuid>
          Specifies partition UUID. This partition identifier is supported
          for example for GUID  Partition  Table (GPT) partition tables.

   PARTLABEL=<label>
          Specifies partition  label  (name).  The  partition  labels  are
          supported  for  example  for  GUID  Partition Table (GPT) or MAC
          partition tables.

   If the filesystem or partition  is  found,  the  device  name  will  be
   printed on stdout.

   The  complete overview about filesystems and partitions you can get for
   example by

          lsblk --fs

          partx --show <disk>

          blkid

EXIT STATUS

          0      success
          1      label or uuid cannot be found
          2      usage error, wrong number of arguments or unknown option
