       xfsinvutil - xfsdump inventory database checking and pruning utility


       xfsinvutil [-F|-i] [-m media_label] -M mount_point mm/dd/yyyy
       xfsinvutil [-F|-i] [-m media_label] -u UUID mm/dd/yyyy
       xfsinvutil [-F] -s SESSION_ID
       xfsinvutil -i
       xfsinvutil -C


       xfsdump  maintains  an online dump inventory in /var/lib/xfsdump/inventory.  The -I option
       of xfsdump displays the inventory contents hierarchically.  The levels  of  the  hierarchy
       are: filesystem, dump session, stream, and media file.

       xfsinvutil  is  a  utility  to  check  this  inventory database for consistency, to remove
       entries of dump sessions which may no longer be of relevance, and to browse  the  contents
       of the inventory.

       The following command line options are available:

       -F   Don't  prompt  the  operator.   When  xfsinvutil  encounters a matching dump session,
            xfsinvutil will normally ask the operator for permission to delete  the  entry.  With
            this option the deletion is performed, no questions asked.

       -i   Interactive mode.  Causes xfsinvutil to run in a mode that will allow the operator to
            browse and modify the contents of the inventory. Please refer to the Interactive Mode
            section below for more information.

       -M mount_point mm/dd/yyyy
            Prunes  dump sessions identified by the given mount point which were created prior to
            the specified date. Optionally -m may be be specified to further limit  the  matching
            dump sessions by media label.  xfsinvutil will prompt the operator prior to pruning a
            dump session unless the -F or -i options are given.

       -u UUID mm/dd/yyyy
            Like -M, except the matching filesystem is specified  using  its  universally  unique
            identifier (UUID) instead of its mount point.

       -m media_label
            If  specified,  only  sessions  with at least one media file whose label matches this
            value will be eligible for pruning.  This restriction is in addition to those imposed
            by  the  date  and  the  -M  or  -u  options.   This option allows the pruning of all
            inventory references to media which may have been overwritten or lost. Note that this
            option does not apply to sessions with no media files.

       -s SESSION_ID
            Prunes  the  dump session identified by the given session id.  xfsinvutil will prompt
            the operator prior to pruning a dump session unless the -F option is given.

       -C   With this option, xfsinvutil performs consistency  checks  for  all  entries  in  the
            inventory  database.  It fixes any problems found. If no consistent entries are found
            , the corresponding inventory database file is removed.

   Interactive Mode
       When run with -i, xfsinvutil will present the operator with a hierarchical  representation
       of the xfsdump inventory.  In this mode, the operator can use the arrow keys (or the h j k
       l keys) to navigate the inventory and also use the following keys and functionality:

       +    Expand a branch of the tree.

       -    Collapse a branch of the tree.

       *    Fully expand a branch of the tree.

       %    Fully collapse a branch of the tree.

       h    Move selection to the parent entry.

       l    Move selection to the child entry.

       j    Move selection to next entry.

       k    Move selection to previous entry.

       d    Mark the current record, and all sub-records, to be deleted.

       u    Clear the current record and all parent records from being deleted.

       i    Import another xfsdump inventory.

       ?    Show help window.

       x    Commit any changes made to the inventory, and exit the program.

       q    Exit the program without committing any changes to the inventory.

       Inventories from other hosts can be imported to create a larger common inventory.   It  is
       recommended  that  the contents of /var/lib/xfsdump/inventory on the remote host be copied
       to a temporary local directory prior to running xfsinvutil.  When  xfsinvutil  is  run  in
       interactive  mode,  and  the  operator  hits  i, they will be prompted for the path to the
       inventory to be imported.  xfsinvutil will then add the contents of the imported inventory
       to  the  main  window,  and all entries will be marked as imported.  The operator can then
       delete any of these entries that are not to be imported.  When the  operator  commits  the
       changes,  xfsinvutil  will  import  any entries which were not marked as deleted.  Deleted
       entries are not actually deleted from the original imported inventory.


       Each dump session updates an inventory database  in  /var/lib/xfsdump/inventory.   xfsdump
       uses the inventory to determine the base of incremental and resumed dumps.

       This  database  can be displayed by invoking xfsdump with the -I option.  The display uses
       tabbed  indentation  to  present  the  inventory  hierarchically.   The  first  level   is
       filesystem.  The second level is session.  The third level is media stream (currently only
       one stream is supported).  The fourth level lists the media files  sequentially  composing
       the stream.
