e2freefrag is used to report free space fragmentation on ext2/3/4
file systems. filesys is the filesystem device name (e.g.
/dev/hdc1, /dev/md0). The e2freefrag program will scan the block
bitmap information to check how many free blocks are present as
contiguous and aligned free space. The percentage of contiguous free
blocks of size and of alignment chunk_kb is reported. It also
displays the minimum/maximum/average free chunk size in the
filesystem, along with a histogram of all free chunks. This
information can be used to gauge the level of free space
fragmentation in the filesystem.
If a chunk size is specified, then e2freefrag will print how
many free chunks of size chunk_kb are available in units of
kilobytes (Kb). The chunk size must be a power of two and be
larger than filesystem block size.
-h Print the usage of the program.
