INODES(8) System Manager's Manual INODES(8)NAME
inodes - print i-node information
inodes # Print information about file names typed in
cd /dev; ls | inodes
# Print information about the special files
Inodes expects a list of file names on stdin, one file name per line. For each file named, the file type, mode, uid, gid, checksum,
length, and name is printed. The checksum is the same as used by crc. This program provides a way to see the sizes of the block special
files in /dev, as shown in the second example above.

df_vxfs: df - report number of free disk blocks on a VxFS file system
prints the number of free blocks and free inodes in VxFS file systems or directories based on the counts kept in the super-blocks.
VxFS dynamically allocates inodes from a pool of free blocks. The number of free inodes and blocks reported by is an estimate based on the
number of free 8K or larger extents and the current ratio of allocated inodes to allocated blocks. (Extents smaller than 8K may not be
usable for all types of allocation, so does not count free blocks in extents smaller than 8K.) Allocating additional blocks may therefore
decrease the count of free inodes and vice versa.
If the operand to is a special device name, the file system can be an unmounted or mounted file system (for example, If you specify a
directoryname, displays information for the file system at that mount point. If neither special nor directory is specified, the free space
on all of the mounted file systems is printed.
recognizes the following options:
Report only the number of kilobytes free.
Report the number of files free.
Report only an actual count of the blocks in the free list
(free inodes are not reported). When this option is specified, reports on raw devices.
Specify the file system type
Report the entire
Report the total number of inodes, the number of free inodes, number of used inodes
and the percentage of inodes in use.
Report the allocation in kilobytes.
Report on local file systems only.
Report the file system name. If invoked with no other options this
option prints a list of mounted file system types.
Print the number of free extents of each size.
Free extents are always an integral power of two in length, ranging from a minimum of one block to the maximum extent
size supported by the file system.
Report the total allocated block figures and the number of free blocks.
Report the percentage of blocks used, the number of blocks used and the number
of blocks free. This option cannot be used with other options.
Echo the completed command line, but performs no other action.
The command line is generated by incorporating the user-specified options and other information derived from This
option allows the user to verify the command line.
There are a number of options that specify output formats, some combinations of which are incompatible. If an incompatible combination is
specified, one of the options will override the other(s).
recognizes the following operands:
directory Name of the mount point from which the VxFS file system is accessed.
special Device name, which contains a mounted or unmounted VxFS file system.
Report the number of free disk blocks for all mounted file systems:
Report the number of free extents of each size, for all mounted VxFS file systems:
Report the number of free files for all mounted VxFS file systems:
Report the total allocated block figures and the number of free blocks, for all mounted file systems:
Report the total allocated block figures and the number of free blocks, for the file system mounted as
Static information about the file systems.
