    Command:

    swaplabel

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           swaplabel [-L label] [-U UUID] device
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           swaplabel  will display or change the label or UUID of a swap partition
           located on device (or regular file).
    
           If the optional arguments -L and -U are not given, swaplabel will  sim-
           ply display the current swap-area label and UUID of device.
    
           If  an  optional  argument  is  present, then swaplabel will change the
           appropriate value on device.  These values can also be set during  swap
           creation  using  mkswap(8).  The swaplabel utility allows to change the
           label or UUID on an actively used swap device.
    
    
    

    OPTIONS

           -h, --help
                  Display help text and exit.
    
           -L, --label label
                  Specify a new label for the device.  Swap partition  labels  can
                  be at most 16 characters long.  If label is longer than 16 char-
                  acters, swaplabel will truncate it and print a warning  message.
    
           -U, --uuid UUID
                  Specify  a  new  UUID  for the device.  The  UUID must be in the
                  standard 8-4-4-4-12 character format, such as is output by uuid-
                  gen(1).
