prtvtoc - report information about a disk geometry and par- titioning


prtvtoc [ -fhs ] [ -t vfstab ] [ -m mnttab ] device


The prtvtoc command allows the contents of the VTOC (volume table of contents) to be viewed. The command can be used only by the super-user. The device name can be the file name of a raw device in the form of /dev/rdsk/c?t?d?s2 or can be the file name of a block device in the form of /dev/dsk/c?t?d?s2.


The following options are supported: -f Report on the disk free space, including the starting block address of the free space, number of blocks, and unused partitions. -h Omit the headers from the normal output. -s Omit all headers but the column header from the normal output. -t vfstab Use vfstab as the list of filesystem defaults, in place of /etc/vfstab. -m mnttab Use mnttab as the list of mounted filesystems, in place of /etc/mnttab.
