How to list start and end of a partition by the sectors in
parted on Linux? The default behavior seems be listing the start and end by bytes in
# parted /dev/sdc print Model: Innostor IS888 ext. HDD (scsi) Disk /dev/sdc: 2000GB Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/512B Partition Table: gpt Disk Flags: Number Start End Size File system Name Flags 1 2097kB 2000GB 2000GB ext4 home
parted has a
unit command to specify the unit to use.
Set unit as the unit to use when displaying locations and sizes, and for interpreting those given by the user when not suffixed with an explicit unit. unit can be one of “s” (sectors), “B” (bytes), “kB”, “MB”, “MiB”, “GB”, “GiB”, “TB”, “TiB”, “%” (percentage of device size), “cyl” (cylinders), “chs” (cylinders, heads, sectors), or “compact” (megabytes for input, and a human-friendly form for output).
For sectors, the unit is “s”.
To print the stand and end sections of a disk such as
sda, the command will be
parted /dev/sda 'unit s print'
# parted /dev/sda 'unit s print' Model: ATA ST2000DM001-1CH1 (scsi) Disk /dev/sda: 3907029168s Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/4096B Partition Table: gpt Disk Flags: Number Start End Size File system Name Flags 1 4096s 1229064191s 1229060096s data 3 1229064192s 3907029134s 2677964943s
