DESCRIPTION

       The vos examine command formats and displays information from the Volume Location Database
       (VLDB) entry and the volume header of the volume specified by the -id argument.

       To display the volume header only, use the vos listvol command. To display information
       from the VLDB only, use the vos listvldb command.

CAUTIONS

       Currently, the maximum quota for a volume is 2 terabytes (2^41 bytes). Note that this only
       affects the volume's quota; a volume may grow much larger if the volume quota is disabled.
       However, volumes over 2 terabytes in size may be impractical to move, and may have their
       size incorrectly reported by some tools, such as fs_listquota(1).

OPTIONS

       -id <volume name or ID>
           Specifies either the complete name or volume ID number of the volume, which can be
           read/write, read-only, or backup.

       -extended
           Displays statistics about read and write operations on files and directories in the
           volume.

       -format
           Shows information in a format suitable for machine parsing.

       -cell <cell name>
           Names the cell in which to run the command. Do not combine this argument with the
           -localauth flag. For more details, see vos(1).

       -noauth
           Assigns the unprivileged identity "anonymous" to the issuer. Do not combine this flag
           with the -localauth flag. For more details, see vos(1).

       -localauth
           Constructs a server ticket using a key from the local /etc/openafs/server/KeyFile
           file. The vos command interpreter presents it to the Volume Server and Volume Location
           Server during mutual authentication. Do not combine this flag with the -cell argument
           or -noauth flag. For more details, see vos(1).

       -verbose
           Produces on the standard output stream a detailed trace of the command's execution. If
           this argument is omitted, only warnings and error messages appear.

       -encrypt
           Encrypts the command so that the operation's results are not transmitted across the
           network in clear text. This option is available in OpenAFS versions 1.4.11 or later
           and 1.5.60 or later.

       -noresolve
           Shows all servers as IP addresses instead of the DNS name. This is very useful when
           the server address is registered as 127.0.0.1 or when dealing with multi-homed
           servers. This option is available in OpenAFS versions 1.4.8 or later and 1.5.35 or
           later.

       -config <configuration directory>
           Set the location of the configuration directory to be used. This defaults to
           /etc/openafs, except if -localauth is specified, in which case the default is
           /etc/openafs/server. This option allows the use of alternative configuration locations
           for testing purposes.

       -help
           Prints the online help for this command. All other valid options are ignored.

OUTPUT

       The first seven lines of the output show information from the volume header and the
       remaining lines come from the VLDB. Each item in the following list corresponds to a line
       of output derived from the volume header.

       ·   Basic information about the specified volume (displayed on a single line):

           ·   Name

           ·   Volume ID number

           ·   Type (the flag is "RW" for read/write, "RO" for read-only, "BK" for backup)

           ·   Size in kilobytes (1024 equals a megabyte)

           ·   Number of files in the volume, if the -extended flag is provided

           ·   Status on the file server machine, which is one of the following:

               On-line
                   The volume is completely accessible to Cache Managers.

               Off-line
                   The volume is not accessible to Cache Managers, but does not seem to be
                   corrupted. This status appears while a volume is being dumped, for example.

               Off-line**needs salvage**
                   The volume is not accessible to Cache Managers, because it seems to be
                   corrupted. Use the bos salvage or salvager command to repair the corruption.

       ·   The file server machine and partition that house the volume, as determined by the
           command interpreter as the command runs, rather than derived from the VLDB or the
           volume header.

       ·   The volume ID numbers associated with the various versions of the volume: read/write
           ("RWrite"), read-only ("ROnly"), backup ("Backup"), and ReleaseClone ("RClone"). One
           of them matches the volume ID number that appears on the first line of the volume's
           output. If the value in the "RWrite", "ROnly", or "Backup" field is 0 (zero), there is
           no volume of that type. If there is currently no ReleaseClone, the "RClone" field does
           not appear at all.

       ·   The maximum space quota allotted to the read/write copy of the volume, expressed in
           kilobyte blocks in the "MaxQuota" field.

       ·   The date and time the volume was created, in the "Creation" field. If the volume has
           been restored with the backup diskrestore, backup volrestore, or vos restore command,
           this is the restore time. For a read-only volume, this is the last release time.

       ·   The date and time this copy of this volume was created, in the "Copy" field.  This is
           the time when the volume was created on this server and partition.  For read-only
           volumes, it is not updated by a release (unlike the Creation date).  The copy date is
           not stored in volume dumps.

       ·   The date and time when the contents of the volume last changed, in the "Last Update"
           field. For read-only and backup volumes, it matches the timestamp in the "Creation"
           field.

       ·   The number of times the volume has been accessed for a fetch or store operation since
           the later of the two following times:

           ·   12:00 a.m. on the day the command is issued

           ·   The last time the volume changed location

       When the -extended flag is included, two tables appear next:

       ·   The table labeled "Raw Read/Write Stats" contains information on the number of reads
           (fetches) and writes (stores) made on the specified volume.

       ·   The table labeled "Writes Affecting Authorship" contains information on writes made to
           files and directories in the specified volume.

       If the following message appears instead of the previously listed information, it
       indicates that a volume is not accessible to Cache Managers or the vos command
       interpreter, for example because a clone is being created.

          **** Volume <volume_ID> is busy ****

       If the following message appears instead of the previously listed information, it
       indicates that the File Server is unable to attach the volume, perhaps because it is
       seriously corrupted. The FileLog and VolserLog log files in the /var/log/openafs directory
       on the file server machine possibly provide additional information; use the bos getlog
       command to display them.

          **** Could not attach volume <volume_ID> ****

       Following a blank line, information from the VLDB entry appears.  Each item in this list
       corresponds to a separate line in the output:

       ·   The base (read/write) volume name. The read-only and backup versions have the same
           name with a ".readonly" and ".backup" extension, respectively.

       ·   The volume ID numbers allocated to the versions of the volume that actually exist, in
           fields labeled "RWrite" for the read/write, "ROnly" for the read-only, "Backup" for
           the backup, and "RClone" for the ReleaseClone. (If a field does not appear, the
           corresponding version of the volume does not exist.) The appearance of the "RClone"
           field normally indicates that a release operation did not complete successfully; the
           "Old release" and "New release" flags often also appear on one or more of the site
           definition lines described just following.

       ·   The number of sites that house a read/write or read-only copy of the volume, following
           the string "number of sites ->".

       ·   A line for each site that houses a read/write or read-only copy of the volume,
           specifying the file server machine, partition, and type of volume ("RW" for read/write
           or "RO" for read-only). If a backup version exists, it is understood to share the
           read/write site.  Several flags can appear with a site definition:

           Not released
               Indicates that the vos release command has not been issued since the vos addsite
               command was used to define the read-only site.

           Old release
               Indicates that a vos release command did not complete successfully, leaving the
               previous, obsolete version of the volume at this site.

           New release
               Indicates that a vos release command did not complete successfully, but that this
               site did receive the correct new version of the volume.

       ·   If the VLDB entry is locked, the string "Volume is currently LOCKED", as well as (in
           OpenAFS 1.5.75 and later) one or more of the following strings:

           Volume is locked for a move operation
               Indicates that the volume was locked due to a vos move or a vos convertROtoRW
               command.

           Volume is locked for a release operation
               Indicates that the volume was locked due to a vos release command.

           Volume is locked for a backup operation
               Indicates that the volume was locked due to a vos backup command.

           Volume is locked for a delete/misc operation
               Indicates that the volume was locked due to a vos delentry, vos addsite, vos
               remsite, vos changeloc, vos syncvldb, vos syncserv, vos rename, or vos lock
               command.

           Volume is locked for a dump/restore operation
               Indicates that the volume was locked due to a vos dump or vos restore command.

       For further discussion of the "New release" and "Old release" flags, see vos_release(1).

EXAMPLES

       The following example shows output for the Example Corporation volume called "usr" with
       two read-only replication sites (this volume is mounted at the /afs/example.com/usr
       directory). For the sake of illustration, the output shows the volume as locked.

          % vos examine usr
