       fs_examine - Shows data about the volume containing a directory or file


       fs examine [-path <dir/file path>+] [-help]

       fs exa [-p <dir/file path>+] [-h]

       fs listvol [-p <dir/file path>+] [-h]

       fs listv [-p <dir/file path>+] [-h]

       fs lv [-p <dir/file path>+] [-h]


       The fs examine command displays information about the volume containing
       each specified directory or file, including its volume ID number, quota
       and the percentage of its quota that is used.

       This command provides the most information about a volume, but the fs
       listquota command displays similar information in tabular format, and
       the fs quota command reports only the percentage of quota used.

       To set volume quota, use the fs setquota or fs setvol command.


       The partition-related statistics in this command’s output do not always
       agree with the corresponding values in the output of the standard UNIX
       df command. The statistics reported by this command can be up to five
       minutes old, because the Cache Manager polls the File Server for
       partition information at that frequency. Also, on some operating
       systems, the df command’s report of partition size includes reserved
       space not included in this command’s calculation, and so is likely to
       be about 10% larger.


       -path <dir/file path>+
           Names a file or directory that resides in the volume about which to
           produce output. Partial pathnames are interpreted relative to the
           current working directory, which is also the default value if this
           argument is omitted.

           Prints the online help for this command. All other valid options
           are ignored.


       The output displays information about the volume that houses each
       specified directory or file, in the following format

          Volume status for vid = I<volume ID> named I<volume name>
          Current offline message is I<message>
          Current disk quota is I<quota in kilobytes>
          Current blocks used are I<volume size in kilobytes>
          The partition has I<available partition> blocks available out of
             I<partition size>

       where the first line specifies the volume’s ID number and name.  The
       "Current offline message" line appears only if an administrator has
       included the -offlinemsg argument to the fs setvol command. The
       remaining lines report, respectively,

       ·   The volume’s quota in kilobytes, or the string "unlimited" to
           indicate an unlimited quota.

       ·   The volume’s current size in kilobytes.

       ·   The number of blocks available and total size of the host
           partition, both in kilobytes.


       The following example shows the output for the volume "user.smith" and
       the partition housing it:

          % fs examine -path /afs/
          Volume status for vid = 50489902 named user.smith
          Current maximum quota is 15000
          Current blocks used are 5073
          The partition has 336662 blocks available out of 4177920


       The issuer must have the "r" (read) permission on the ACL of the root
       directory of the volume that houses the file or directory named by the
       -path argument, and "l" (list) permission on the ACL of each directory
       that precedes it in the pathname.
