How to read UFS filesystem super block information in FreeBSD

How to read UFS filesystem super block information in FreeBSD

Use the dumpfs utility (by default in FreeBSD). Quote from man:
Quote:
# man dumpfs
DUMPFS(8) FreeBSD System Manager's Manual DUMPFS(8)

NAME
dumpfs -- dump UFS file system information

SYNOPSIS
dumpfs [-f] [-l] [-m] filesys | device

DESCRIPTION
The dumpfs utility prints out the UFS super block and cylinder group
information for the file system or special device specified, unless the
-f, -l or -m flag is specified. The listing is very long and detailed.
This command is useful mostly for finding out certain file system infor-
mation such as the file system block size and minimum free space percent-
age.

If -f is specified, a sorted list of all free fragments and free fragment
ranges, as represented in cylinder group block free lists, is printed.
If the flag is specified twice, contiguous free fragments are not col-
lapsed into ranges and instead printed in a simple list. Fragment num-
bers may be converted to raw byte offsets by multiplying by the fragment
size, which may be useful when recovering deleted data.

If -l is specified, the pathname to the file system's container derived
from its unique identifier is printed.

If -m is specified, a newfs(8) command is printed that can be used to
generate a new file system with equivalent settings.

SEE ALSO
disktab(5), fs(5), disklabel(8), fsck(8), newfs(8), tunefs(8)

HISTORY
The dumpfs utility appeared in 4.2BSD.

FreeBSD 9.1 Jul 14, 2011 FreeBSD 9.1
