Displays the characteristics of file systems.
lsfs [ -q ] [ -c | -l ] [ -a | -v VfsType | -u MountGroup | [ FileSystem ... ] ]
The lsfs command displays characteristics of file systems, such as mount points, automatic mounts, permissions, and file system size. The FileSystem parameter reports on a specific file system. The following subsets can be queried for a listing of characteristics:
The lsfs command displays additional Journaled File System (JFS) characteristics if the -q flag is specified.
You can use a Web-based System Manager File Systems application (wsm fs fast path) to run this command. You could also use the System Management Interface Tool (SMIT) smit lsfs fast path to run this command.
|-a||Lists all file systems (default).|
|-c||Specifies that the output should be in colon format.|
|-l||Specifies that the output should be in list format.|
|-q|| Queries the logical volume manager (LVM) for the logical volume size (in 512-byte blocks) and queries the JFS superblock for the file system size, the fragment size,
the compression algorithm (if any),
and the number of bytes per i-node (nbpi).
This information is not reported for other virtual file system types. It is displayed in addition to other file system characteristics reported by the lsfs command.
|-u MountGroup||Reports on all file systems of a specified mount group.|
|-v VfsType||Reports on all file systems of a specified type.|
lsfs -v jfs
lsfs -q /
|/etc/filesystems||Lists the known file systems and defines their characteristics.|
