BLOCKDEV(8)                           System Administration                           BLOCKDEV(8)



NAME
       blockdev - call block device ioctls from the command line

SYNOPSIS
       blockdev [-q] [-v] command [command...]  device [device...]
       blockdev --report [device...]

DESCRIPTION
       The utility blockdev allows one to call block device ioctls from the command line.

OPTIONS
       -V     Print version and exit.

       -q     Be quiet.

       -v     Be verbose.

       --report
              Print  a  report for the specified device. It is possible to give multiple devices.
              If none is given, all devices which appear in /proc/partitions are shown. Note that
              the partition StartSec is in 512-byte sectors.

COMMANDS
       It is possible to give multiple devices and multiple commands.

       --flushbufs
              Flush buffers.

       --getalignoff
              Get alignment offset.

       --getbsz
              Print blocksize in bytes.

       --getdiscardzeroes
              Get discard zeroes support status.

       --getfra
              Get filesystem readahead in 512-byte sectors.

       --getiomin
              Get minimum I/O size.

       --getioopt
              Get optimal I/O size.

       --getmaxsect
              Get max sectors per request

       --getpbsz
              Get physical block (sector) size.

       --getra
              Print readahead (in 512-byte sectors).

       --getro
              Get read-only. Print 1 if the device is read-only, 0 otherwise.

       --getsize64
              Print device size in bytes.

       --getsize
              Print device size (32-bit!) in sectors. Deprecated in favor of the --getsz option.

       --getss
              Print sectorsize in bytes - usually 512.

       --getsz
              Get size in 512-byte sectors.

       --rereadpt
              Reread partition table

       --setbsz bytes
              Set  blocksize. Note that the block size is specific to the current file descriptor
              opening the block device, so the change of block size only persists for as long  as
              blockdev has the device open, and is lost once blockdev exits.

       --setfra sectors
              Set filesystem readahead (same like --setra on 2.6 kernels).

       --setra sectors
              Set readahead (in 512-byte sectors).

       --setro
              Set read-only.

       --setrw
              Set read-write.
