NAME
mddiagnose -- gather information to aid in diagnosing Spotlight issues SYNOPSIS
mddiagnose -h mddiagnose [-f path] [-e path] [-p path] [-n] DESCRIPTION
The mddiagnose tool gathers system and Spotlight information in order to assist Apple when investigating issues related to Spotlight. A great deal of information is harvested, spanning system state, system and Spotlight details. What mddiagnose Collects: o A spindump of the system o Several seconds of top output o Individual samples of mds and mdworker o Paths for all files used by Spotlight to contain its database on every volume o All system logs o All spin and crash reports for the following processes: mds mdworker o Recent spin and crash reports for the following processes, for all local users: mds mdworker o The query text and result quality statistics for recent Spotlight searches. The actual results of the searches are not gathered o General information about disks and mounted network shares o The path of the last file indexed by each mdworker process on behalf of Spotlight. The path of the last file which resulted in a crash of an mdworker process. In each case, only the path is gathered, not the contents of the file o Spotlight configuration for each volume currently mounted on your system. This includes the path and size of all files used inter- nally by Spotlight as well as a listing of paths that are user excluded from indexing o Comprehensive information about internal state of Spotlight What mddiagnose Doesn't Collect: o No user data is harvested from any volume o No paths or files found by any search are returned o No database storage or user files are returned o No authentication credentials are harvested from the system OPTIONS
-h Print full usage. -m Gather a subset of the normal report. -f path Write the diagnostic to the specified path. -p path Gather Spotlight permissions and filter information. Run as owner of that file. EXIT STATUS
mddiagnose exits with status 0 if there were no internal errors encountered during the diagnostic, or >0 when an error unrelated to external state occurs or unusable input is provided by the user. Mac OS X 15 March 2011 Mac OS X
