bcachefs-tools 0.1-0.ab2f1ec Tools to create and manage bcachefs file systems

The bcachefs-tools are command-line utilities for creating, checking, and otherwise managing bcachefs file systems.

Bcachefs is a CoW file system supporting native encryption, compression, snapshots, and (meta)data checksums. It can use multiple block devices for replication and/or performance, similar to RAID.

In addition, bcachefs provides all the functionality of bcache, a block-layer caching system, and lets you assign different roles to each device based on its performance and other characteristics.
