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

SYNOPSIS
       fsadm [options] check device

       fsadm [options] resize device [new_size[BKMGTEP]]

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

OPTIONS
       -h --help
              -- print help message

       -v --verbose
              -- be more verbose

       -e --ext-offline
              -- unmount ext2/ext3/ext4 filesystem before doing resize

       -f --force
              -- bypass some sanity checks

       -n --dry-run
              -- print commands without running them

       -y --yes
              -- answer "yes" at any prompts

       new_size
              -- 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.

DIAGNOSTICS
       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.
       A status code of 1 is used for other failures.

EXAMPLES
       "fsadm -e -y resize /dev/vg/test 1000M" tries to resize the  filesystem
       on logical volume /dev/vg/test. If /dev/vg/test contains ext2/ext3/ext4
       filesystem it will be unmounted prior the resize.  All [y|n]  questions
       will be answered 'y'.

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES
       TMPDIR Where the temporary directory should be created.
