NAME

       cache_dump - dump cache metadata from device or file to standard output

SYNOPSIS

       cache_dump [options] {device|file}

DESCRIPTION

       cache_dump  dumps  binary  cache  metadata created by the device-mapper
       cache target on a device or file to standard  output  for  analysis  or
       postprocessing  in  XML  format.  XML formated metadata can be fed into
       cache_restore (see cache_restore(8)) in order to put  it  back  onto  a
       metadata device (to process by the device-mapper target) or file.

       This tool cannot be run on live metadata.

       -r, --repair
       Repair the metadata whilst dumping it.

       -h, --help
       Print help and exit.

       -V, --version
       Output version information and exit.

EXAMPLES

       Dumps the cache metadata on logical volume /dev/vg/metadata to standard
       output in XML format:

       cache_dump /dev/vg/metadata

EXAMPLES

       Dumps the cache metadata  on  logical  volume  /dev/vg/metadata  whilst
