NAME
       xfsinvutil - xfsdump inventory database checking and pruning utility

SYNOPSIS
       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

DESCRIPTION
       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.

NOTES
   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.
