NAME

       era_dump - dump era metadata from device or file to standard output

SYNOPSIS

       era_dump [options] {device|file}

DESCRIPTION

       era_dump  dumps  binary  era  metadata created by the device-mapper era
       target on  a  device  or  file  to  standard  output  for  analysis  or
       postprocessing  in  XML  format.  XML formated metadata can be fed into
       era_restore (see era_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.

       --logical
       Fold any unprocessed write sets into the final era array.  You probably
       want to do this if you're  intending  to  process  the  results  as  it
       simplifies the XML.

EXAMPLES

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

       era_dump /dev/vg/metadata

DIAGNOSTICS

       era_dump returns an exit code of 0 for success or 1 for error.
