* Add the "btrfs filesystem label" commandGoffredo Baroncelli2011-10-25
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Hi all, this patch adds the command "btrfs filesystem label" to change (or show) the label of a filesystem. This patch is a subset of the one written previously by Morey Roof. I included the user space part only. So it is possible only to change/show a label of a *single device* and *unounted* filesystem. The reason of excluding the kernel space part, is to simplify the patch in order to speed the check and then the merging of the patch itself. In fact I have to point out that in the past there was almost three attempts to propose this patch, without success neither complaints. Chris, let me know how you want to proceed. I know that you are very busy, and you prefer to work to stabilize btrfs instead adding new feature. But I think that changing a label is a *essential* feature for a filesystem managing tool. Think about a mount by LABEL. To show a label $ btrfs filesystem label <device> To set a label $ btrfs filesystem label <device> <newlabel> Please guys, give a look to the source. Comments are welcome. You can pull the source from the branch "label" of the repository http://cassiopea.homelinux.net/git/btrfs-progs-unstable.git Regards G.Baroncelli Signed-off-by: Chris Mason <chris.mason@oracle.com>
* Deprecate btrfsctl, btrfs-show, btrfs-volGoffredo Baroncelli2011-10-25
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Hi all, the patch below deprecates the following programs * btrfsctl * btrfs-vol * btrfs-show the reason is simple, these programs are superseded by the btrfs utility, both in terms of documentation, usability and bug. The goal is to avoid to duplicate codes and avoid update two programs. The patch adds a warning in the man pages, in the INSTALL file and in the programs. $ ./btrfsctl ** ** WARNING: this program is considered deprecated ** Please consider to switch to the btrfs utility ** no valid commands given usage: btrfsctl [ -d file|dir] [ -s snap_name subvol|tree ] [-r size] [-A device] [-a] [-c] [-D dir .] -d filename: defragments one file -d directory: defragments the entire Btree -s snap_name dir: creates a new snapshot of dir -S subvol_name dir: creates a new subvolume -r [+-]size[gkm]: resize the FS by size amount -A device: scans the device file for a Btrfs filesystem -a: scans all devices for Btrfs filesystems -c: forces a single FS sync -D: delete snapshot -m [tree id] directory: set the default mounted subvolume to the [tree id] or the directory Below the patch, but it is possible to pull the changes from: http://cassiopea.homelinux.net/git/btrfs-progs-unstable.git branch btrfs-deprecated Comments are welcome.

* Update/clean up btrfs help and man page V2Goffredo Baroncelli2011-10-25
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Hi all, enclose you can find a patch which improves the help of the btrfs commands, updates the INSTALL file and the btrfs (command) man page. Regarding the help of the btrfs command: - moved the "subvolume set-default" command in the "subvolume" commands group - removed a wrong new line - small tweak on the basis of Andreas suggestion Regarding the btrfs command man page: - renaming the command "device balance" in "filesystem balance" (thanks to Andreas Phillipp to highlight that) - adding the entry "subvolume find-new" - document the switches of the command "filesystem defrag" - document the <devid> facility of the command "filesystem resize" - small tweak on the basis of Andreas suggestion Regarding the INSTALL file, which was very old, I removed the reference of the old btrfsctl utility and changed the examples using the btrfs command. I removed the old (and now wrong) statement about the inability to delete a subvolume/snapshot Chris, you can pull the patch from the branch "help_cleanup" of the following repository. http://cassiopea.homelinux.net/git/btrfs-progs-unstable.git (or you can browse the changes at http://cassiopea.homelinux.net/git/btrfs-progs-unstable.git/?p=btrfs- progs-unstable-all.git;a=summary) The patch is very simple: only updates the man page, the INSTALL file and moves/updates some lines in the help of btrfs command. Comments are welcome.

* Update for lzo supportLi Zefan2011-10-25
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | [Btrfs-Progs][V2] Update for lzo support - Add incompat flag, otherwise btrfs-progs will report error when operating on btrfs filesystems mounted with lzo option. - Update man page. - Allow to turn on lzo compression for defrag operation: # btrfs filesystem defragment -c[zlib, lzo] <file> Note: "-c zlib" will fail, because that's how getopt() works for optional arguments.

* new util: 'btrfs'ghigo2010-03-11
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | This commit introduces a new command called 'btrfs' for managing a btrfs filesystem. 'btrfs' handles: - snapshot/subvolume creation - adding/removal of volume (ie: disk) - defragment of a tree - scan of a device searching a btrfs filesystem - re-balancing of the chunk on the disks - listing subvolumes and snapshots This has also been updated to include the new defrag range ioctl.
