why block number changed after change of file?




hi,

i touch a new file and input the content "a" to it, next i use filefrag to see the block number of the file , and then open the file to change the content of the file to "aa", next use filefrag to check the block number again, but why block number changed after change of file? is the block number the hard-disk block number or memory block number? if it is memory block number ,how to get the unchangable hard-disk block number?

Thanks!

the commands displays as follow:

zsk zsk-laptop:~$ sudo filefrag -v a
Checking a
Filesystem type is: ef53
Filesystem cylinder groups is approximately 104
Blocksize of file a is 4096
File size of a is 3 (1 blocks)
First block: 2501741
Last block: 2501741

zsk zsk-laptop:~$ vim a
zsk zsk-laptop:~$ sudo filefrag -v a
