That is not really very verbose – an example

[mhebenst at ehs141 ~]$ lfs getstripe /lfs/lfs10s/mhebenst/IOR.00000001
lmm_stripe_count:   1
lmm_stripe_size:    1048576
lmm_pattern:        1
lmm_layout_gen:     0
lmm_stripe_offset:  8
        obdidx           objid           objid           group
             8         4989642       0x4c22ca                0

Does that mean the file is only present on OST8 of 11(there are 12 OSTs)? What if the stripesize 2 or higher? Will the distribution be exactly round robin over the listed OSTs?

"lfs getstripe" is the command you're looking for.

Can I find out how a file (size 130GB, stripesize 1MB) is distributed over OSTs?
