I am using XFS at the moment and I will put here a few filesystem related tools, for my own future use. The Arch Linux wiki has good documentation.

To repair:

umount /dev/sda3
xfs_repair -v /dev/sda3

To check fragmentation:

xfs_db -c frag -r /dev/sda3

To defragment:

xfs_fsr /dev/sda3

XFS is among the recommended filesystems for use with SSD, supporting TRIM. In addition, XFS has had relatime as the default atime behaviour for a long time.
