RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for xchklog (redhat section 8)

xchklog(8)			JFS utility - extract fsck.jfs log		       xchklog(8)

NAME
       xchklog - extract a log from the JFS fsck workspace into a file

SYNOPSIS
       xchklog [ -f output.file ] [ -p ] [ -V ] device

DESCRIPTION
       xchklog extracts the contents of either the most recent or immediately prior JFS fsck ser-
       vice log from the specified device, and writes the output  into	a  specified  or  default
       file.   (The default file name is <pwd>fscklog.new.  If the -p option is used, the default
       file name is <pwd>fscklog.old.)

       The contents of the output file can be formatted  into  text  by  using	the  JFS  utility
       xchkdmp.

       device is the special file name corresponding to the actual device from which the fsck log
       will be extracted (e.g.	/dev/hdb1 ).

OPTIONS
       -f output.file
	      Specify the output file name, overriding the default file name.

	      output.file must be 127 characters or less in length.

	      output.file will be created in the present working directory  unless  it	is  fully
	      qualified.

       -p     Extract the prior log (as opposed to the most recent log).

       -V     Print version information and exit (regardless of any other chosen options).

EXAMPLES
	Extract the most recent log on /dev/hda5 into <pwd>fscklog.new:

	      xchklog /dev/hda5

       Extract the most recent log on /dev/hdb3 into /temp/l9651107.log:

	      xchklog -f /temp/l9651107.log /dev/hdb3

       Extract the prior log on /dev/hdb4 into <pwd>fscklog.old:

	      xchklog -p /dev/hdb4
