findfs(8) [bsd man page]

FINDFS(8)						       System Administration							 FINDFS(8)

NAME
       findfs - find a filesystem by label or UUID

SYNOPSIS
       findfs NAME=value

DESCRIPTION
       findfs  will  search the block devices in the system looking for a filesystem or partition with specified tag. The currently supported tags
       are:

       LABEL=<label>
	      Specifies filesystem label.

       UUID=<uuid>
	      Specifies filesystem UUID.

       PARTUUID=<uuid>
	      Specifies partition UUID. This partition identifier is supported for example for GUID  Partition	Table (GPT) partition tables.

       PARTLABEL=<label>
	      Specifies partition label (name). The partition labels are supported for example for GUID Partition Table  (GPT)	or  MAC  partition
	      tables.

       If the filesystem or partition is found, the device name will be printed on stdout.

       The complete overview about filesystems and partitions you can get for example by

	      lsblk --fs

	      partx --show <disk>

	      blkid

EXIT STATUS
	      0      success
	      1      label or uuid cannot be found
	      2      usage error, wrong number of arguments or unknown option

AUTHOR
       findfs was originally written by Theodore Ts'o <tytso@mit.edu> and re-written for the util-linux package by Karel Zak <kzak@redhat.com>.

ENVIRONMENT
       LIBBLKID_DEBUG=all
	      enables libblkid debug output.

SEE ALSO
       blkid(8), lsblk(8), partx(8)

AVAILABILITY
