Is there a way of checking an XFS filesystem for clean/dirty status while mounted? One of the checks we've long performed is an FS-level error check. This is *not a full-on fsck*, this is "asking the file system if it noted any problems". This is done while the file system is mounted and "hot". For example, here's how we'd check an ext* partition: # debugfs -R "show_super_stats -h" /dev/md127 | grep -i "Filesystem state" We'd look for "Filesystem state: clean" (or something else if not clean). ZFS also allows for a "hot & mounted" check for dirty file system: # zpool status So far, I've been unsuccessful in finding an equivalent for XFS.
