db_log_verify - Verify log files of a database environment

utility verifies the log files of a specific database environment.This utility verifies a specific range of log records,or changed log records of a specific database.
- -C cache-size
- Specify the cache size (in megabytes) of the temporary database environment internallyused during the log verification.
- -b start-lsn
- Specify the starting log record (by lsn) to verify.
- Specify whether to continue the verification after an error is detected.If not specified, the verification stops when the first error is detected.
- -D database-name
- Specify a database name. Only log records related to this database are verified.
- -d database-filename
- Specify a database file name. Only log records related this database file are verified.
- -e end-lsn
- Specify the ending log record by lsn.
- -h home-to-verify
- Specify a home directory of the database environment whose log is to be verified.
- -H temporary-home
- Specify a home directory for this utility to create a temporarily database environmentto store runtime data during the verification.
It is an error to specify the same directory as the -h option. If this directory is not specified,all temporary databases created during the verification will be in-memory,which is not a problem if the log files to verify are not huge.
- Do not acquire shared region mutexes while running. Other problems, such as potentiallyfatal errors in Berkeley DB, are ignored as well. This option is intended only for debugging errors,and should not be used under any other circumstances.
- -P password
- Specify an environment password. Although Berkeley DB utilities overwritepassword strings as soon as possible, there may be a window ofvulnerability on systems where unprivileged users can see command-linearguments or where utilities are not able to overwrite the memorycontaining the command-line arguments.
- -s start-time
- Specify the starting log record by time. The time range specified is not precise becausethe lsn of the most recent time point is used as the starting lsn.
- Write the library version number to the standard output and exit.
- Enable verbose mode to display verbose output during the verification process.
- -z end-time
- Specify the ending log record by time. The time range specified is not precise becausethe lsn of the most recent time point is used as the ending lsn.
To specify a range of log records, you must provide either an lsn range or a time range.You can neither specify both nor specify an lsn and a time as a range.
If the log footprint is over several megabytes, specify a home directory and a big cache sizefor log verification internal use. Else, the process' private memory may be exhaustedbefore the verification completes.
The db_log_verify utility does not perform the locking function, even in Berkeley DBenvironments that are configured with a locking subsystem.All errors are written to stderr, and all normal and verbose messages are written to stdout.
The db_log_verify utility uses a Berkeley DB environment (as described for the-h option, the environment variable DB_HOME, orbecause the utility was run in a directory containing a Berkeley DBenvironment). In order to avoid environment corruption when using aBerkeley DB environment, db_log_verify should always be given the chance todetach from the environment and exit gracefully. To cause db_log_verifyto release all environment resources and exit cleanly, send it aninterrupt signal (SIGINT).
utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.
- If the -h option is not specified and the environment variableDB_HOME is set, it is used as the path of the database home, as describedin DB_ENV->open.
If the application(s) that use the environment make use of the DB_ENV->set_lg_dir
method, then in order for this utility to run correctly, you need a DB_CONFIG
file which sets the proper paths using the set_lg_dir configuration parameter.
