Subject: [PATCH v6 0/9] xfsprogs: online scrub/repair support
Date: Fri, 10 Mar 2017 15:24:44 -0800
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Hi all,

This is the sixth revision of a patchset that adds to XFS userland tools
support for online metadata scrubbing and repair.  There aren't any
on-disk format changes, and the main overview is in the cover letter for
the kernel patches.  Since v5 I have removed from xfs_scrub the ability
to scrub non-XFS filesystems (i.e. XFS is now required) and have added
the ability to run xfs_scrub periodically and in a contained environment
if systemd is active.  None of the systemd functionality is active by

If you're going to start using this mess, you probably ought to just
pull from my github trees for kernel[1], xfsprogs[2], and xfstests[3].
The xfsprogs patches should apply against 4.10.

This is an extraordinary way to eat your data.  Enjoy! 
Comments and questions are, as always, welcome.
