Checking file system fragmentation

Postby palimmo » 08 May 2017 19:38

Very nice tutorial from Distrowatch.com

https://distrowatch.com/weekly.php?issue=20170508#qa

Apparently my file system is ok ;)

Code: Select all

 ~ $ sudo      e4defrag -c /
[sudo]
<Fragmented files>                             now/best       size/ext
1. /var/log/samba/log.wb-ALESSIO-LAPTOP         66/1              4 KB
2. /var/log/wtmp.1                              60/1              4 KB
3. /home/alessio/.local/share/akonadi/db_data/mysql.err.old
                                               768/1              4 KB
4. /var/log/pm-powersave.log.1                  20/1              4 KB
5. /var/log/wtmp                                12/1              4 KB

 Total/best extents                             170005/162702
 Average size per extent                        47 KB
 Fragmentation score                            3
 [0-30 no problem: 31-55 a little bit fragmented: 56- needs defrag]
 This directory (/) does not need defragmentation.
 Done.

Well, despite having the root partition quite full (about 88% now) my system looks fine, too:

Code: Select all

# e4defrag -c /
..........................................................
Total/best extents                             540792/537948
 Average size per extent                        50 KB
 Fragmentation score                            0
 [0-30 no problem: 31-55 a little bit fragmented: 56- needs defrag]
 This directory (/) does not need defragmentation.

So, good news. As expected.
