xfsinvutil(1M)							xfsinvutil(1M)

NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     xfsinvutil	- xfsdump inventory database checking and pruning utility

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     xfsinvutil	[-F|-i]	[-u UUID] [-M mount_point] mm/dd/yyyy
     xfsinvutil	-i
     xfsinvutil	-C

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     xfsdump(1M) maintains an online dump inventory in /var/xfsdump/inventory.
     The -I option of xfsdump displays the inventory contents hierarchically.
     The levels	of the hierarchy are:  filesystem, dump	session, stream, and
     media file.

     Over time,	this database may grow too large as xfsdump and	xfsrestore(1M)
     do	not remove entries from	the inventory. The database may	also develop
     inconsistencies for various reasons such as operator errors etc., that
     may cause xfsdump or xfsrestore to	print error or warning messages.

     xfsinvutil	is an utility to check this inventory database for
     consistency, to remove entries of dump sessions which may no longer be of
     relevance,	and to browse the contents of the inventory.

     xfsinvutil	may be used in three different modes.  In the first mode
     xfsinvutil	steps over each	dump session recorded in the inventory and
     prompts for a yes or no response to whether each session should be
     pruned.  The second is a batch mode in which xfsinvutil will prune	every
     entry matching the	supplied criteria.  The	third mode allows the user to
     browse the	inventory in detail, to	delete or undelete records at will and
     also to import inventories	from other hosts.

     The following command line	options	are available:

     -F	  Don't	prompt the operator.  When xfsinvutil encounters a matching
	  dump session,	xfsinvutil will	normally ask the operator for
	  permission to	delete the entry. With this option the deletion	is
	  performed, no	questions asked.

     -i	  Interactive mode.  Causes xfsinvutil to run in a mode	that will
	  allow	the operator to	browse the contents of the inventory. Please
	  refer	to the Interactive Mode	section	below for more information.

     -M	mount_point
	  Specifies the	mount point of inventory entries to be selected	for
	  pruning. xfsinvutil prompts the operator when	a dump session in the
	  inventory is identified by the mount point and was created prior to
	  the specified	date.  The operator can	then select specific dump
	  sessions for removal from the	inventory database.  xfsinvutil	also
	  performs consistency checks on other inventory database entries when
	  invoked with this option.

     -u	UUID
	  Specifies the	filesystem universally unique identifier (UUID)	of
	  inventory entries to be selected for pruning.	 This option is
	  equivalent to	the -M option.

     -C	  With this option, xfsinvutil performs	consistency checks for all
	  entries in the inventory database.  It fixes any problems found. If
	  no consistent	entries	are found , the	corresponding inventory
	  database file	is removed.

   Interactive Mode    [Toc]    [Back]
     When run with -i, xfsinvutil will present the operator with a
     hierarchical representation of the	xfsdump	inventory.  In this mode, the
     operator can use the arrow	keys (or the h j k l keys) to navigate the
     inventory and also	use the	following keys and functionality:

     +	  Expand a branch of the tree.

     -	  Collapse a branch of the tree.

     *	  Fully	expand a branch	of the tree.

     %	  Fully	collapse a branch of the tree.

     h	  Move selection to the	parent entry.

     l	  Move selection to the	child entry.

     j	  Move selection to next entry.

     k	  Move selection to previous entry.

     d	  Mark the current record, and all sub-records,	to be deleted.

     u	  Clear	the current record and all parent records from being deleted.

     i	  Import another xfsdump inventory.

     ?	  Show help window.

     x	  Commit any changes made to the inventory, and	exit the program.

     q	  Exit the program without commiting any changes to the	inventory.

     Inventories from other hosts can be imported to create a larger common
     inventory.	 It is recommended that	the contents of	/var/xfsdump/inventory
     on	the remote host	be copied to a temporary local directory prior to
     running xfsinvutil.  When xfsinvutil is run in interactive	mode, and the
     operator hits i, they will	be prompted for	the path to the	inventory to
     be	imported.  xfsinvutil will then	add the	contents of the	imported
     inventory to the main window, and all entries will	be marked as imported.
     The operator can then delete any of these entries that are	not to be

     imported.	When the operator commits the changes, xfsinvutil will import
     any entries which were not	marked as deleted.  Deleted entries are	not
     actually deleted from the original	imported inventory.

NOTES    [Toc]    [Back]

     Each dump session updates an inventory database in
     /var/xfsdump/inventory.  xfsdump uses the inventory to determine the base
     of	incremental and	resumed	dumps.

     This database can be displayed by invoking	xfsdump	with the -I option.
     The display uses tabbed indentation to present the	inventory
     hierarchically.  The first	level is filesystem.  The second level is
     session.  The third level is media	stream (currently only one stream is
     supported).  The fourth level lists the media files sequentially
     composing the stream.
