Another Stupid Question


Hello Everyone...

I am new to Linux, and enjoying it very much. As a matter of fact, I'm in Linux about 90% of the time and only go back to Windows on my dual boot machine when I need an application that only runs on the Microsoft thingy.

I have searched and read all of the posts that I can find about fragmentation and defragmentation and understand that it's not a big issue with the ext3 file system I am using.

But NOWHERE can I find the command or tool that REPORTS the amount of fragmentation on the disk. I know that it exist, but I can'f find it anywhere....can anyone just jot down a command that will give me a report of the general condition of the disk and its fragmentaion status?

Thanks

the only place i think of that shows the level of fragmentation on a drive is afer a full fsck run on boot.
