I've come across http://ck.kolivas.org/apps/defrag/ not so long ago. Looks
interesting to me, but I'm not sure if this works at all (on jfs).

I have been experimenting with defrag too. I have not verified that the files are more continous after a ./defrag. Is there a way to find out how many extents each file consists of? If not,im thinking about making a small utility that shows just that.
