NAME
jfs_tune - adjust tunable file system parameters on JFS SYNOPSIS
jfs_tune [options] device DESCRIPTION
jfs_tune adjusts tunable parameters on a Linux JFS file system or external journal. jfs_tune must be run as root. device is the special file name corresponding to the actual device (e.g. /dev/hdb1) on which a JFS file system or JFS external journal has been created. OPTIONS
-J device=external-journal Attach the JFS external journal located on external-journal to the JFS file system on device. The external journal must already have been created using the command. More than one file system may share the same external jour- nal. mkfs.jfs -J journal_dev external-journal Attach the external journal to the file system by using the command jfs_tune -J device=external-journal device Instead of specifying a device name directly, external-journal can also be specified by either LABEL=label or UUID=UUID (Use jfs_tune -l device to display a journal device's volume label and UUID.) -l List the contents of the JFS file system or external journal superblock that resides on device. -L volume-label Set the volume label of the JFS file system or external journal. JFS labels can be at most 16 characters long; if volume-label is longer than 16 characters, jfs_tune will truncate it and print a warning. The volume label can be used by mount(8), fsck(8), and /etc/fstab(5) (and possibly others) by specifying LABEL=volume_label instead of a block special device name like /dev/hda5. -U UUID Set the universally unique identifier (UUID) of the file system or external journal device to UUID. The format of the UUID is a series of hex digits separated by hyphens, like this: "c1b9d5a2-f162-11cf-9ece-0020afc76f16". The UUID parameter may also be one of the following: clear clear the file system UUID random generate a new randomly-generated UUID time generate a new time-based UUID The UUID may be used by mount(8), fsck(8), and /etc/fstab(5) (and possibly others) by specifying UUID=uuid instead of a block spe- cial device name like /dev/hda1. See uuidgen(8) for more information. -V Print version information and exit (regardless of any other chosen options). EXAMPLES
Set a randomly-generated UUID for the JFS file system on the 3rd partition of the 2nd hard disk, and view the resultant superblock: jfs_tune -l -U random /dev/hdb3 Attach an already existing external journal on a device labeled JFSLog to a JFS file system on /dev/hda8: jfs_tune -J device=LABEL=JFSLog /dev/hda8 REPORTING BUGS
If you find a bug in JFS or jfs_tune, please report it via the bug tracking system ("Report Bugs" section) of the JFS project web site: http://jfs.sourceforge.net/ Please send as much pertinent information as possible including any error messages resulting from running jfs_tune. SEE ALSO
