How to initiate FSCK from SSH?

I’m sure somebody on this board has a good procedure for running FSCK on the FS.

I’m not looking to do this on a regular/chron-job basis, but rather once in a while (whenever I feel like it).

Thoughts welcome!

I’ve read that CTRL-SHIFT-M from the Dashboard is supposed to force this, but it doesn’t work for me.

There was a thread about this a while ago. In short, you are trying to fsck the partition where the ssh daemon is. Since fsck only works on unmounted filesystems, you can’t start it from ssh.
