       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/inven-
       tory.  The -I option of xfsdump displays the inventory contents hierar-
       chically.   The  levels of the hierarchy are: filesystem, dump session,
       stream, and media file.

       xfsinvutil is a utility to check this inventory  database  for  consis-
       tency,  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 per-
            mission to delete the entry. With this option the deletion is per-
            formed, 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 inven-
            tory.  Please refer to the Interactive Mode section below for more

       -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.   xfs-
            invutil  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 hierar-
       chical 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

       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/xfs-
       dump/inventory on the remote host be copied to a temporary local direc-
       tory  prior  to running xfsinvutil.  When xfsinvutil is run in interac-
       tive 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

       Each  dump  session  updates  an  inventory  database  in /var/lib/xfs-
       dump/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 hierarchi-
       cally.   The  first  level is filesystem.  The second level is session.
       The third level is media stream (currently  only  one  stream  is  sup-
       ported).  The fourth level lists the media files sequentially composing
       the stream.

                                dump inventory database

       xfsdump(8), xfsrestore(8).
