fsck - how much % fsck is completed

-C [ "fd" ]
Display completion/progress bars for those filesystem checkers (currently only for ext2 and ext3) which support them. Fsck will manage the filesystem checkers so that only one of them will display a progress bar at a time. GUI front-ends may specify a file descriptor fd, in which case the progress bar information will be sent to that file descriptor.

Note : Make sure that partition is not mounted while running fsck.

Many time due to big partition size ,we have to wait for the long time at that time we think fsck process is stuck at that time we can use the following fsck command because its showing the % for the fsck process, so that we are able to see how much % fsck is completed and remaining.

fsck -y -C0 /dev/sdb1
