NAME
       vxprint - display records from the Veritas Volume Manager configuration

SYNOPSIS
       vxprint	[-aAbcCdfGhHlLmnpPqQrstvVx]  [-D database] [-e pattern] [-F [type:] format-spec ]
       [-g diskgroup] [name...]

       vxprint [-AqS] [-g diskgroup]

DESCRIPTION
       The vxprint utility displays complete or partial information from records in Veritas  Vol-
       ume  Manager  (VxVM)  disk  group configurations.  Records can be selected by name or with
       special search expressions.

       Selecting RVG and RLINK records via search expressions is not currently supported.

       Additionally, record association hierarchies can be displayed in  an  orderly  fashion  so
       that the structure of records is more apparent.

       Dashes (-) are displayed in the output wherever there is no applicable record value.

       If  no options are specified, the default output uses -f, -h, -r, and -A. Specifying other
       options can override the these defaults, making it necessary  to  explicitly  specify  the
       normal default options.

       The default output format consists of single-line records, each of which includes a record
       type, name, usage type or object association, enabled state, length, and other fields.	A
       one-line header is written before the record information.

       When  no  disk  group  is  specified, selected records are retrieved from the default disk
       group as determined using the rules given in the vxdg(1M) manual page.

       Subdisks/Subvolumes are sorted primarily by their device/volume, subdisks may also include
       a device offset.  Plex and volume records are sorted by name.

       Note 1: The vxprint utility can display disk group, disk media, volume, plex, subdisk/sub-
       volume, data change object (DCO), link object and snap object records.  It cannot  display
       disk  access  records.	Use  the vxdisk list operation to display disk access records, or
       physical disk information.

       Note 2: The subvolume "record type" appears as sv as a convenience in displaying views  of
       the  configuration  database.   For manipulation purposes, these records are accessible as
       subdisk record types, that is, records tagged as type sd.

OPTIONS
       The -V, -P, -v, -p, -s, -d, and -G options may be combined to specify that more	than  one
       record  type  is  allowed.   Specifying all these options restores the default behavior of
       retrieving all record types.

       -a	 Display all information about each selected record, one record  per  line.   The
		 contents  are	similar  to  the -m option, with the following exceptions: the -a
		 option format appears on a single line with one  space  character  between  each
		 field,  the  list  of	associated  records  is  not displayed, and the -m option
		 retains the  sd record type rather than  sv .	This format is	useful	for  pro-
		 cessing  output through filters such as sed and grep that operate exclusively on
		 one-line records, although the fields are not readily	distinguishable.   It  is
		 not a practical format from the viewpoint of human readability.

       -A	 Print	records  from  all active (imported) disk groups.  Each disk group repre-
		 sented in the output is separated from other disk  groups  by	blank  lines.	A
		 short header line introduces each disk group.

		 Note: This option overrides the -g option.

       -b	 Print the size of fields such as object length and offset in units of 512 bytes,
		 regardless of platform.  If used with the -m option, the output values are qual-
		 ified by a suffix character.

       -c	 Display only DCO (dc), link object (ln) and snap object (sp) records.

       -C	 Display only cache object records.

       -d	 Display only disk media records.

       -D database
		 Get  a  configuration from the specified location.  The database option argument
		 can be one of:

		 vold	   Get a configuration from the volume configuration daemon.

		 -	   Read a configuration from the standard input.  The standard	input  is
			   expected to be in standard vxmake input format.

       -e pattern
		 Use  a volume configuration search expression to select records to be displayed.
		 See vol_pattern(4) for a description of search patterns.

		 Selecting RVG and RLINK records via search expressions  is  not  currently  sup-
		 ported.

       -f	 Display  information about each record as one-line output records containing the
		 following fields, from left to right.	A one-line header is written  before  any
		 record information.

		   TY Record type.

		   NAME
		      Record name.

		   ASSOC
		      Usage-type,  volume association, or plex association (or - for unassociated
		      plexes and subdisks).

		   KSTATE
		      Kernel state (or - for subdisks, disks, or disk groups).

		   LENGTH
		      Length in sectors.

		   PLOFFS
		      Plex association offset (or - for volumes, plexes, disks, or disk  groups).
		      This field appears as LOG for log subdisks.

		   STATE
		      Usage-dependent  state  (or  - for subdisks).  If an exception condition is
		      recognized (a plex I/O failure, removed or inaccessible disk, or	an  unre-
		      covered stale data condition), then that condition is listed instead of any
		      usage-type-dependent state.

		   TUTIL0
		      The tutil[0] field is set by usage-types as a lockout mechanism.

		   PUTIL0
		      The putil[0] field can be set to prevent associations of	plex  or  subdisk
		      records.

       -F [ type :]format_spec
		 Set  a  literal  format string for displaying record information.  If the option
		 argument begins with a comma-separated list of zero or more  record  types  (dg,
		 dm, plex, sd, vol, or vset) followed by a colon, the format_spec after the colon
		 is used when printing the indicated record types.  If no record types are speci-
		 fied,	all record types are assumed.  In this case, a colon can still be used to
		 prevent parts of format_spec from being interpreted as a type.

		 The order of -F options is significant, with specifications later in the  option
		 list  overriding  earlier  specifications.   Any  use	of -F overrides any other
		 option letter specifying a type of format for the indicated record types.  Thus,
		 -F  vol:format_spec can be used with the -t option to change the format used for
		 volumes, while still using the -t format for plex and subdisk records.

		 The format-spec string consists of  literal  text  with  embedded  configuration
		 record  variables.  Configuration record variables are introduced with a percent
		 sign (%).  The percent sign is followed by a variable name or by a variable name
		 and  optional	field  width  in braces.  The following formats are allowed for a
		 variable specification:

			%field_name
			%{field_name}
			%{field_name : [[-] width ][ * ] }
			%{field_spec | field_spec [ |...] }

		 The first format specifies the exact field name.  The	second	format	allows	a
		 field	to be specified with immediately surrounding text that would otherwise be
		 taken as part of the field name.  The third format allows the specification of a
		 justification	and a field width.  The fourth format allows alternate specifica-
		 tions to be used, either with or without justification and width specifications.
		 For  the  fourth, the first specification is used if the specified field name is
		 applicable to the record and is non-empty; otherwise, the next available  speci-
		 fication is used.  Any number of alternate specifications can be used.

		 If  no field width is specified, then the number of output column positions used
		 for the field is the smallest possible to contain the	value;	otherwise  spaces
		 are  added  in  the  output  to make it width columns in length.  A field is not
		 truncated if the minimum number of column positions necessary	for  a	value  is
		 greater than width.

		 If  a field width is specified with a leading dash (-) character, then an output
		 field is lengthened by adding spaces after the field value, yielding a left-jus-
		 tified  field.   Otherwise, spaces are added before the value, yielding a right-
		 justified field.

		 If a field width is followed or replaced by an asterisk (*) character,  then  an
		 unrecognized  or  inappropriate field yields either no output for the field or a
		 field containing all blanks.  Without the asterisk, the printed  field  contains
		 the character -.

		 A  percent sign (%) can be displayed by including two percent characters (%%) in
		 format-spec.

		 See the Record Fields section for a description of the field names that  can  be
		 specified.   An  invalid format string may yield unexpected output, but does not
		 generate an error.

       -g diskgroup
		 Display records from the specified disk group.  The diskgroup argument can be	a
		 name or ID of a disk group.

		 If neither the -g option nor the -A option is specified, vxprint displays infor-
		 mation about the default disk group for the -F, -m and -n options, as determined
		 using	the  rules given in the vxdg(1M) manual page.  For other options, vxprint
		 displays information about all disk groups.

		 Note: If the default disk group is the reserved disk group,  nodg,  some  opera-
		 tions may fail.

       -G	 Display only disk group records.

       -h	 List hierarchies below selected records.  For RVGs, this list includes all asso-
		 ciated RLINKs, volumes, and subdisks.	For volumes, this list includes all asso-
		 ciated  plexes and subdisks.  For plexes, this list includes all associated sub-
		 disks/subvolumes.

		 Hierarchies are separated in the output by a blank  line.   Each  object  listed
		 occupies  its	own line.  The order of output is the volume name, followed by an
		 associated plex and its subdisks/subvolumes, followed	by  the  next  associated
		 plex and its subdisks/subvolumes, and so on.

		 If  a DCO is associated with a volume, the order of output is the volume hierar-
		 chy (as described above) followed by the DCO and the DCO volume hierarchy (if	a
		 DCO  volume is associated with the DCO), followed by any associated link objects
		 and snap objects.

		 For an RVG, all RLINKs and volumes that are associated  with  it  are	displayed
		 using a similar hierarchy.

		 The  -V, -P, -v, -p, -s and -c options limit the selection only of the head of a
		 hierarchy.  They do not prevent the display of associated records through the -h
		 option.

		 Unless  objects  are named explicitly with name operands, a record is never dis-
		 played in two separate hierarchies.  Thus, a selected plex is not displayed as a
		 separate  hierarchy  if  the  volume  that  is  associated with the plex is also
		 selected.

       -H	 Print help information on usage.

       -l	 Display all information from each selected record, including pfto values for  DM
		 records.   This  information is in a free format that is not intended for use by
		 scripts.  This format is more convenient than	the  -m  format  for  looking  at
		 records  directly,  because  the  density of information is more appropriate for
		 human viewing.

       -m	 Display all information about each selected record in a format that is useful as
		 input	to both the vxmake utility and to awk(1) scripts.  The format used is the
		 vxmake description format (see vxmake(4)).  In addition to  record  information,
		 the list of plex or subdisk/subvolume records associated with selected volume or
		 plex records is displayed.  Each field is output on a separate line, indented by
		 a  single  tab.  Values for fields that contain comment-style strings are always
		 preceded by one double-quote character and terminated by the end of the line.

		 Note: The -A option is not suitable for use with the -m option.  This is because
		 the vxmake command cannot handle vxprint output for multiple disk groups.

		 One  of  the  following  values  is  displayed  for  a volume set if the makedev
		 attribute is set to on:

		 vset_devinfo=on:read-only
			   Raw device nodes for the compnent volumes  are  visible  in	read-only
			   mode.

		 vset_devinfo=on:read-write
			   Raw	device	nodes  for the compnent volumes are visible in read-write
			   mode.

		 This field is not displayed if makedev is set to off.

		 Note: If the output from the vxprint -m command is fed to the vxmake command  to
		 recreate  a  volume  set,  the  vset_devinfo attribute must set to off.  Use the
		 vxvset set command to re-enable raw device access with the desired  access  mode
		 as described in the vxvset(1M) manual page.

       -n	 Display only the names of selected records.

       -p	 Display  only	plexes.   If a name operand refers to a volume or subdisk, then a
		 diagnostic is written to the standard error.

       -P	 Display only RLINKs.

       -q	 Suppress headers that would otherwise be printed for the default and the -t  and
		 -f output formats.

       -Q	 Suppress  the	disk group header that separates each disk group.  A single blank
		 line still separates each disk group.

       -R	 Rendezvous point. This is a reserved option to indicate the communications point
		 used with vxconfigd.

       -r	 Display  related  records  of	a  volume containing subvolumes. Grouping is done
		 under the highest level volume.

       -L	 Useful when used with the -r parameter. Display related records of a volume con-
		 taining subvolumes, but grouping is done under any volume.

       -s	 Display  only subdisks/subvolumes. If a name operand refers to a volume or plex,
		 then a diagnostic is written to the standard error.

       -S	 Display configuration summary information.  The output consists of a header line
		 followed  by  a line containing the total number of subdisks/subvolumes, plexes,
		 volumes, RVGs, and RLINKs; the number of unassociated	subdisks/subvolumes;  and
		 the number of unassociated plexes.

       -t	 Print single-line output records that depend upon the configuration record type.

		      been dissociated), this is indicated by displaying the modifier (SPARSE) in
		      the output.

		   STATE
		      Plex utility state.  If an exception condition is recognized  on	the  plex
		      (an  I/O	failure,  a removed or inaccessible disk, or an unrecovered stale

Record Fields
       The field names that can be used with the format_spec string of the -F option and that are
       produced for the -m or -a options are the same as those that can be provided as	input  to
       the  vxmake  utility.   For  a  list of these field names, see vxmake(4).  Some additional
       pseudo fields are also supported.  These are:

       admin_state
		 The persistent state for a plex or volume record, accounting for any exceptional
		 conditions.   For  volume  records,  this  displays  the  state field.  For plex
		 records, this displays one of the following in the given precedence order:

		 NODEVICE  An expected underlying disk could not be found

		 REMOVED   An underlying disk is in the removed state

		 IOFAIL    An unrecovered I/O failure caused the plex to be detached

		 RECOVER   A disk replacement left the plex in	need  of  recovery,  either  from
			   another plex or from a backup

		 RELOCATE  The plex has been moved by the Hot-Relocation feature

       aslist	 A  comma-separated list of subdisks or plexes that are associated with a plex or
		 volume record.

       assoc	 The name of the volume or plex to which a plex or subdisk record is  associated.
		 If the record is not associated, this field is empty.

       column_pl_offset
		 For  a subdisk associated with a striped plex, the column number and column off-
		 set of the subdisk separated by a  or the plex offset (if the subdisk is associ-
		 ated in a non-striped plex) or - (if the plex is not associated).

       dgname or dg_name
		 This is the name of the disk group containing the record.

       name	 The  name  of	the record being displayed.  Because the record name is specified
		 positionally within vxmake description formats, the vxmake utility  and  the  -m
		 and -a options to vxprint do not explicitly provide this field name.

       ncolumn_st_width
		 For a striped plex, the number of columns and stripe unit size for a plex, sepa-
		 rated by a , or - if the plex is not striped.

       plname or pl_name
		 The name of an associated plex record.  For a plex record, this  is  the  plex's
		 name; for a subdisk record, this is the associated plex's name (if any).

       rec_type or rtype
		 This  is  either  dg  (disk  group), dm (disk), vol (volume), plex (plex), or sd
		 (subdisk), depending on the record being displayed.

       sd_flag	 For a subdisk associated with a RAID-5 plex, this will display flags relating to
		 the status of the subdisk. An S indicates that the subdisk is considered to con-
		 tain stale data. A d indicates that the  subdisk  has	been  detached	from  the
		 RAID-5 plex.

       sdaslist  A comma-separated list of subdisks associated with a plex.  Each subdisk name is
		 followed by a colon and the subdisk's plex association offset, in sectors.   For
		 volume records, this field is equivalent to aslist.

       short_type or type
		 This  is  either  dg,	dm,  v,  pl, or sd, depending upon the record type.  This
		 pseudo variable can be used in a 2-character field, if a full 4 character  field
		 (required by rec_type) is too large.

       use_assoc The usage type for volume records and the association name for associated plexes
		 and subdisks.	For dissociated plexes and subdisks, this is an empty string.

       vname or v_name
		 The name of an associated volume record.  For a volume record, this is the  vol-
		 ume's	name;  for  a plex record, this is the associated volume's name (if any);
		 for a subdisk record, this is the associated volume of the associated	plex  (if
		 any).

       rvname or rv_name
		 The  name of an associated RVG record.  For an RLINK record, this is the associ-
		 ated RVG name (if any).

       Displaying a boolean value always yields on or off.  If a field	containing  a  length  or
       offset  is  specified  in a format_spec string, then the result is the length or offset in
       sectors.  When the field is displayed with -m or -a, the length or offset is displayed  in
       sectors with a suffix of s.

EXIT CODES
       The vxprint utility exits with a non-zero status if the attempted operation fails.  A non-
       zero exit code is not a complete indicator of the problems encountered but rather  denotes
       the first condition that prevented further execution of the utility.

       See vxintro(1M) for a list of standard exit codes.

EXAMPLES
       To  display  all  records in all disk groups, with clearly displayed associations and with
       output lines tailored to each record type, enter:

	      vxprint -Ath

       To avoid looking at the 5-line header and the extra disk group headers generated  by  this
       command, you can remove all the headers by adding a -q.

       To display all subdisks and all disk groups, in sorted order by disk, enter:

	      vxprint -AGts

       If  all plexes are named based on volumes, this can be a convenient means of viewing large
       configurations.	The association field for each of the subdisks names the  plex,  and  the
       plex name will normally imply a volume association by the form of the plex name.

       To display the names of all unassociated plexes, use the command

	      vxprint -n -p -e !assoc

       To  print all subdisks, including the subdisk name and either the subdisk plex association
       offset or the putil0 field for dissociated subdisks, enter:

	      vxprint -s -F "%{name:-14} %{pl_offset|putil0}"

       The vxprint command can be used to back up objects from one disk group configuration  with
       the  use  of  the  combined options -mvpsch or -mvpschr. The output should be saved into a
       file that is maintained outside of the system being backed up.  Use the following  command
       with the saved file to restore the configuration:

	      vxmake -d file

NOTES
       A VxVM configuration without any disk groups is not considered to be an error.

       Note:  Although	it  is	possible  to use vxmake to create new volumes from an appropriate
       description file, it is recommended that you use vxassist or the graphical user	interface
       instead.

       Note: The Configuration Backup and Restore utilities, vxcnfbk and vxcnfres, are the recom-
       mended method for backing up and restoring volume hierarchies.
