fsadm --- utility to resize or check filesystem on a device


   fsadm [options] check device
   fsadm [options] resize device [new_size]


   fsadm  utility  checks or resizes the filesystem on a device.  It tries
   to use the same API for ext2, ext3, ext4, ReiserFS and XFS filesystem.


          Unmount ext2/ext3/ext4 filesystem before doing resize.

          Bypass some sanity checks.

          Display the help text.

          Print commands without running them.

          Be more verbose.

          Answer "yes" at any prompts.

          Absolute number of filesystem blocks to be in the filesystem, or
          an  absolute  size  using  a  suffix  (in  powers  of 1024).  If
          new_size is not supplied, the whole device is used.


   On successful completion, the status code is 0.  A  status  code  of  2
   indicates  the operation was interrupted by the user.  A status code of
   3 indicates the  requested  check  operation  could  not  be  performed
   because  the  filesystem  is  mounted  and  does  not support an online
   fsck(8).  A status code of 1 is used for other failures.


   Resize the filesystem on logical volume /dev/vg/test to 1000 megabytes.
   If /dev/vg/test contains ext2/ext3/ext4 filesystem it will be unmounted
   prior the resize.  All [y/n] questions will be answered 'y'.

   fsadm -e -y resize /dev/vg/test 1000M


   TMPDIR The temporary directory  name  for  mount  points.  Defaults  to

          The  device  directory  name.  Defaults to "/dev" and must be an
          absolute path.
