This Perl script decides whether a given VxFS file system would benefit from defragmenting, based on published guidelines for fragmentation statistics. If the -a (auto) option is used, the script defragments the file system if defragmentation is necessary. checkpoint_taker.pl

IMPORTANT: Once you download the vxdefrag.txt file, you must change the file extension from .txt to .pl. Your final file should be renamed to: vxdefrag.pl. Or download the vxdefrag.zip file and extract the Perl script from there.
