Wouldn't something like (under xfs_db) :
getblock -b #block -n

Sounds nice, but my (ancient? 2.8.11) version of xfs_db does not know
getblock (only blockget) since that also matches the command line and
the usage looks about to be right, I'm currently trying that one, e.g.
Sorry, I meant blockget.
smartctl reports a bad LBA at 36922326. fdisk tells me the partition
starts at 31069773, hence the block under question is 5852553.
xfs_info tells be a bsize of 4096 which I take as the block size, thus
the xfs block to look at should be 731569, right?
xfs_db> blockget -b 731569 -n
setting block 0/731569 to free1
setting block 0/731569 to free2
hmm, no inode number. Does that mean this block is not used by any file
currently - which might be perfectly fine since this partition is only
Everything right so far?
Yes, calculations look fine. I'm not sure what exactly is the difference
between free1 and free2 - someone more knowledgable would have to
comment (and overally comment about this method).
In my case when I check block allocated by some file, I get results such as:
xfs_db> blockget -b 4584722 -n
setting block 0/4584722 to data
setting inode to 36231069 for block 0/4584722
inode 36231069 block 4584722 at offset 810
sb_fdblocks 1330583, aggregate AGF count 7983498
xfs_db> ncheck -i 36231069
xfs_db> inode 36231069
data offset 0 startblock 4583912 (0/4583912) count 832 flag 0
Here the file lies in the first extent, taking 832*4096 blocks.
