jfs_tune - adjust tunable file system parameters on JFS


jfs_tune [options] device


jfs_tune adjusts tunable parameters on a Linux JFS file system or external journal. jfs_tune must be run as root.

device is the special file name corresponding to the actual device (e.g. /dev/hdb1) on which a JFS file system or JFS external journal has been created.


-J device=external-journal
Only supported on JFS versions (1.0.18 or later) that support external journal. Attach the JFS external journal located on external-journal to the JFS file system on device.
Currently, you may only attach a single JFS file system device to a single JFS external journal (i.e. each JFS file system using an external journal must have a unique external journal).
The external journal must already have been created using the command
mkfs.jfs -J journal_dev external-journal
Attach the external journal to the file system by using the command
jfs_tune -J device=external-journal device
Instead of specifying a device name directly, external-journal can also be specified by either LABEL=label or UUID=UUID (Use jfs_tune -l device to display a journal device's volume label and UUID.)
List the contents of the JFS file system or external journal superblock that resides on device.
-L volume-label
Set the volume label of the JFS file system or external journal. JFS labels can be at most 16 characters long; if volume-label is longer than 16 characters, jfs_tune will truncate it and print a warning. The volume label can be used by mount(8), fsck(8), and /etc/fstab(5) (and possibly others) by specifying LABEL=volume_label instead of a block special device name like /dev/hda5.
Set the universally unique identifier (UUID) of the file system or external journal device to UUID. The format of the UUID is a series of hex digits separated by hyphens, like this: "c1b9d5a2-f162-11cf-9ece-0020afc76f16". The UUID parameter may also be one of the following:
clear the file system UUID
generate a new randomly-generated UUID
generate a new time-based UUID
The UUID may be used by mount(8), fsck(8), and /etc/fstab(5) (and possibly others) by specifying UUID=uuid instead of a block special device name like /dev/hda1.
See uuidgen(8) for more information.
Print version information and exit (regardless of any other chosen options).


Set a randomly-generated UUID for the JFS file system on the 3rd partition of the 2nd hard disk, and view the resultant superblock:

jfs_tune -l -U random /dev/hdb3

Attach an already existing external journal on a device labeled JFSLog to a JFS file system on /dev/hda8:

jfs_tune -J device=LABEL=JFSLog /dev/hda8
