The XFS team has been working on a training course aimed at developers, support staff and experienced users, that explores the internals and ondisk format of XFS.

  • XFS Overview and Internals [Index]

Barry Naujok has documented most of the XFS ondisk format, including examples on how to traverse the structure and diagnose ondisk problems:

  • Fixing XFS Filesystems Faster [[1]]

In July 2006, SGI storage marketing updated the XFS datasheet:

  • Open Source XFS for Linux [pdf]
