Publisher description for Shake for Linux
Shake is a defragmenter that runs in userspace, without the need of patching the kernel and while the system is used (for Now, on GNU/Linux only). There is nothing MAGic in that : it just works by rewriting fragmented files. But it has some heuristics that could make it more efficient than other tools, including defrag and, maybe, xfs_fsr. As an example, it allows you to write find -iname '*.mp3' | sort | shake to defrag all mp3 in a directory, puting together on the disk those close in lexical order.
