NAME

       mdb_copy - LMDB environment copy tool

SYNOPSIS

       mdb_copy [-V] [-c] [-n] srcpath [dstpath]

DESCRIPTION

       The  mdb_copy utility copies an LMDB environment. The environment can be copied regardless
       of whether it is currently in use.  No lockfile is created, since  it  gets  recreated  at
       need.

       If  dstpath is specified it must be the path of an empty directory for storing the backup.
       Otherwise, the backup will be written to stdout.

OPTIONS

       -V     Write the library version number to the standard output, and exit.

       -c     Compact while copying. Only current data pages will  be  copied;  freed  or  unused
              pages  will be omitted from the copy. This option will slow down the backup process
              as it is more CPU-intensive.  Currently it fails if the environment has suffered  a
              page leak.

       -n     Open LDMB environment(s) which do not use subdirectories.

DIAGNOSTICS

       Exit  status  is  zero  if no errors occur.  Errors result in a non-zero exit status and a
       diagnostic message being written to standard error.

CAVEATS

       This utility can trigger significant file size  growth  if  run  in  parallel  with  write
       transactions, because pages which they free during copying cannot be reused until the copy
       is done.
