BTRFS Filesystem Maintenace Scripts.

Project description

This is a quick project based upon Marc MERLIN’s ` <>`__. Fedora 24 doesn’t have shlock in the INN package, and I decided to reimplement the script in Python.


pip install btrfsmaint


Single Drive

Run a quick maintenance without a scrub on /home.

btrfsmaint --no-scrub /home

Run quick maintanance on all BTRFS volumes currently mounted.

btrfsmaint --no-scrub -a

Run via crontab, all mounted BTRFS volumes with scrub.

0  0  *  *  * root       /usr/bin/btrfsmaint -a


  • Python 2.6+

  • Python 3.0+

  • PyPy 5+

Library Dependencies


  • Perhaps a mutex of some sort or locking like unto shlock

  • Make some default scripts - cron, systemd, etc.
