filefrag and btrfs filesystem defragment and maybe snapshots
While exploring some btrfs maintenance with respect to defragmenting I ran the following commands: # filefrag /path/to/34G.file /path/to/5.7G.file /path/to/34G.file: 2406 extents found /path/to/5.7G.file: 572 extents found Thinking those mostly static files could be less fragmented I ran: # btrfs filesystem defragment -c /path/to/34G.file # btrfs filesystem defragment -c /path/to/5.7G.file and to my surp...

BTRFS fails defragging
Hi folks, I''m using Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal with # uname -r 3.5.0-24-generic And it seems I cannot defrag : # filefrag /boot/initrd.img-3.5.0-24-generic /boot/initrd.img-3.5.0-24-generic: 3 extents found # btrfs filesystem defrag /boot/initrd.img-3.5.0-24-generic # echo $? 20 # filefrag /boot/initrd.img-3.5.0-24-generic /boot/initrd.img-3.5.0-24-generic: 3 extents found Any clue appreciated ;-) TIA. -- Swâmi...

ZFS utility like Filefrag on linux to help analyzing the extents mapping
Hello All, I''d like to know if there is an utility like `Filefrag'' shipped with e2fsprogs on linux, which is used to fetch the extents mapping info of a file(especially a sparse file) located on ZFS? I am working on efficient sparse file detection and backup through lseek(SEEK_DATA/SEEK_HOLE) on ZFS, and I need to verify the result by comparing the or...

hi I have a virtualbox image of ubuntu hardy. I did filefrag and i got this hardy.vdi: 73 extents found, perfection would be 69 extents Why does it say perfection would be 69 extents. Shouldnt it be 1 extent?

ext3 heavy file fragmentation with NFS write
Hello, Does anybody know how to avoid the file fragmentation when a file is created over NFSv3? A file created locally is OK: dd bs=32k if=/dev/zero of=test count=32x1024 conv=fsync filefrag test test: 10 extents found, perfection would be 9 extents When I create the file in the same dir, but from another machine, mounted over NFS: filefrag test test: 4833 extents found, perfection would be 9 extents With such a file a sequential read is quite slow (~76MB vs >200MB on my raid c...

Finding the holes in sparse files.
Is there a way to find the holes in sparse files, other than assuming contiguous blocks of zeroes are holes? Thanks, Sean

Defragmentation of large files
...cular get really fragmented due to CoW, which is expected. I haven''t yet switched off CoW on the backups directory mainly to experiment and see what would happen. So doing that would be an acceptable solution to my issue below, but I''m curious as to what''s happening. Filefrag reports that a VM image file has 4744 extents. If I run btrfs fi defrag -v /path/to/file.vmdk, it returns immediately with no messages but an exit status of 20, and running filefrag again shows that no defragmentation has taken place. This is on Ubuntu 13.04, kernel 3.9.0-rc8 and v0.20-rc1 of t...

enquiry about defrag
Hi all, i am new on btrfs, i am testing KVM on btrfs (host: kernel x86-64 3.5.3), the performance is reasonable. I have two question on defrag, can someone help me? 1. According to btrfs wiki, defragment a COW file will produce two unrelated files. Does it apply to the "autodefrag" mount option? 2. Is there any command for the fragmentation status of a file/dir ? e.g. fragment

defrag makes fragmentation worse
...snapshots present on the filesystem. When I do a btrfs fi defrag on a file, the file becomes much more fragmented. The end result can be a file with 20k times more fragments than before. Initially I thought the extents were just smaller but were next to each other, so I checked with both ''filefrag'' as well as ''filefrag -v''. Both reported the same number. I don''t know if this has anything to do with having snapshots at all because files that haven''t been snapshotted yet are affected by this. Disk space isn''t an issue since my 1TB disk isn&...

chattr +C vs. btrfs subvolume snapshot
What happens if you set an individual file inside a subvolume as nocow (chattr +C) and then take a snapshot of that subvolume and modify the file in both? Will btrfs now ignore the nocow attribute completely or will it do "as few copies as possible"? (I''d love to know if it''s possible to visualize the fragmentation of a single file.) -- To unsubscribe from this list:

Please How do I calculate the offset of a file within a ext3 partition

filesystem fragmentation stats?
Let me preface this by saying "Yes, I know *nix filesystems don't need to worry about fragmentation". That said, is there a way to check the overall level of fragmentation of a live ext3 filesystem? I know about filefrag, but that's for specific files. And I think e2fsck tells you, but only if you take the filesystem offline for the scan. Is there anything that will give a percentage for a *live* filesystem? (I have a fs that's been at >95% usage for quite some time, and I want to check for any fr...

Patch to add buffering to decoding too
I find these Linux user comments about not suffering from fragmentation curious. I just tested decoding a flac in Fedora 20 and filefrag command reports the decoded file is in 8 extents.

Inode/Blocksize questions
Hi! I'm going to build a maildir-based mailserver with a ~56 gb mail-partition. What blocksize/bytes-per-inode/number of inodes should i use (i don't want to ran out of inodes and don't want to sacrifice too much space for filefragments)? Is there a drawback when lowering the blocksize/increasing the number of inodes (except the maximum filesystem size)? The inodes used by a file is always filesize divided by the blocksize rounded up to the next absolute value, isn't it? best regards, Michael Renner

Finding Fragmentation on a Btrfs Volume
I was Googling around for ways to check fragmentation on Btrfs, and I came across the ''filefrag'' command. Even though it is a ext2/3 command, it seems to work on Btrfs files since it uses the FIEMAP ioctl to determine the number of extents. From a bash prompt, I found I could examine large sections with something like: # for file in $(find <PATH/TO/BTRFS/VOL/> -type f); do f...
