istat - Display details of a meta-data structure (i.e. inode)


istat [-B num ] [-f fstype ] [-i imgtype] [-o imgoffset] [-b dev_sector_size] [-vV] [-z zone ] [-s seconds ] image [images] inode


istat displays the uid, gid, mode, size, link number, modified, accessed, changed times, and all the disk units a structure has allocated.

The options are as follows:

Display the addresses of num disk units. Useful when the inode is unallocated with size 0, but still has block pointers.
Specify the file system type. Use '-f list' to list the supported file system types. If not given, autodetection methods are used.
The time skew of the original system in seconds. For example, if the original system was 100 seconds slow, this value would be -100.
Identify the type of image file, such as raw. Use '-i list' to list the supported types. If not given, autodetection methods are used.
The sector offset where the file system starts in the image.
The size, in bytes, of the underlying device sectors. If not given, the value in the image format is used (if it exists) or 512-bytes is assumed.
Verbose output of debugging statements to stderr
Display version
An ASCII string of the original system's time zone. For example, EST5EDT or GMT. These strings are defined by the operating system and may vary. NOTE: This has changed since TCTUTILs.
The disk or partition image to read, whose format is given with '-i'. Multiple image file names can be given if the image is split into multiple segments. If only one image file is given, and its name is the first in a sequence (e.g., as indicated by ending in '.001'), subsequent image segments will be included automatically.
