How to determine file system block size?


Hi there

I have RH EL installed on my machine with an ext3 filesystem. How can I know the block size of the filesystem?

I tried "df -k", which lists the sizes of the partitions in 1K-Blocks. But I believe that 1K is not the block size of the partitions as such.

Thanks for your help
Andre

As root:

tune2fs -l

will spit out a variety of data about the filesystem, one datum of which is the filesystem block size.
