NAME

vol_id - probe filesystem type and read label and uuid  

SYNOPSIS

vol_id [--export] [--type] [--label] [--label-raw] [--uuid] [--skip-raid] [--probe-all] [--offset=bytes] [--debug] [--help] [device]
 

DESCRIPTION

vol_id

is usually called from a udev rule, to provide udev with the filesystem type, the label and the uuid of a volume. It supports most of the common filesystem formats and detects various raid setups to prevent the recognition of raid members as a volume with a filesystem.  

OPTIONS

--export

Print all values in key/value format to import them into the environment.

--type

Print the filesystem type.

--label

Print the safe version of volume label suitable for use as filename.

--label-raw

Print the raw volume label.

--uuid

Print the uuid of a volume.

--skip-raid

Skip detection of raid metadata.

--probe-all

Probe for all types and print all matches.

--offset=bytes

Start probing at the given offset, instead of the beginning of the volume. The offset value is specified in bytes.

--debug

Print debug messages to stderr.

--help

Print usage.
 

ENVIRONMENT

UDEV_LOG

Set the syslog priority.
 

EXIT STATUS

vol_id will only return successful if the value asked for is not empty. All trailing whitespace will be removed, spaces replaced by underscore and slashes ignored.
