xfs_logprint(8)                      System Manager's Manual                      xfs_logprint(8)

NAME
       xfs_logprint - print the log of an XFS filesystem

SYNOPSIS
       xfs_logprint [ options ] device

DESCRIPTION
       xfs_logprint prints the log of an XFS filesystem (see xfs(5)).  The device argument is the
       pathname of the partition or logical volume containing the filesystem. The device can be a
       regular  file if the -f option is used. The contents of the filesystem remain undisturbed.
       There are two major modes of operation in xfs_logprint.

       One mode is better for filesystem operation debugging.  It  is  called  the  transactional
       view  and is enabled through the -t option. The transactional view prints only the portion
       of the log that pertains to recovery. In other words, it prints out complete  transactions
       between  the tail and the head. This view tries to display each transaction without regard
       to how they are split across log records.

       The second mode starts printing out information from the beginning of the log.  Some error
       blocks  might  print out in the beginning because the last log record usually overlaps the
       oldest log record. A message is printed when the physical end of the log  is  reached  and
       when the logical end of the log is reached. A log record view is displayed one record at a
       time. Transactions that span log records may not be decoded fully.

OPTIONS
       -b     Extract and print buffer information. Only used in transactional view.

       -c     Attempt to continue when an error is detected.

       -C filename
              Copy the log from the filesystem to the file  filename.   The  log  itself  is  not
              printed.

       -d     Dump the log from front to end, printing where each log record is located on disk.

       -D     Do not decode anything; just print data.

       -e     Exit  when  an  error is found in the log. Normally, xfs_logprint tries to continue
              and unwind from bad logs.  However, sometimes it just dies in bad ways.  Using this
              option prevents core dumps.

       -f     Specifies  that the filesystem image to be processed is stored in a regular file at
              device (see the mkfs.xfs(8) -d file option).  This might happen if an image copy of
              a filesystem has been made into an ordinary file with xfs_copy(8).

       -l logdev
              External log device. Only for those filesystems which use an external log.

       -i     Extract and print inode information. Only used in transactional view.

       -q     Extract and print quota information. Only used in transactional view.

       -n     Do not try and interpret log data; just interpret log header information.

       -o     Also  print  buffer  data in hex.  Normally, buffer data is just decoded, so better
              information can be printed.

       -s start-block
              Override any notion of where to start printing.

       -t     Print out the transactional view.

       -v     Print "overwrite" data.

       -V     Prints the version number and exits.

SEE ALSO
       mkfs.xfs(8), mount(8).

                                                                                  xfs_logprint(8)
