MMINFO(8)MMINFO(8)NAMEmminfo - NetWorker media database reporting command
SYNOPSISmminfo [ -avV ] [ -o order ] [ -s server ] [ -x exportspec ] [ report ]
[ query ] [ volname... ]
< report >: [ -m | -p | -B | -S | -X | -r reportspec ]
< query >: [ -c client ] [ -l ] [ -N name ] [ -t time ] [ -q
The mminfo command reports information about NetWorker media and save
sets. The mminfo command can produce several different reports
depending on the flags specified. Several built-in reports can be
specified using shorthand flags. Custom reports can also be specified.
The default report, along with the built-in reports printed by the use
of the -v, -V, -m, -p, -S, -B, and -X flags, are described first below.
The custom query and report generators, using the -q queryspec and -r
reportspec options, are described in the CUSTOM QUERIES AND REPORTS
section. Other options are described in the OPTIONS section.
Without any options, mminfo displays information about the save sets
that completed properly since the previous day's midnight, and are
still contained in an online file index (browsable save sets). The
following information is printed for each save set: the containing
volume name, the client's name, the creation date, the size saved on
that volume, the save set level, and the save set name. The size field
is displayed in bytes (B), kilobytes (KB), megabytes (MB), gigabytes
(GB), terabytes (TB), petabytes (PB), or exabytes (EB). The save set
level will display `full', `incr', `migration' or 1 through 9, for
full, incremental, migration save sets, level 1 through 9,
respectively. The level is only kept for scheduled saves and file
migration; save sets generated by explicitly running the save(8)
command (called ad hoc saves) do not have an associated level.
Specifying the -v flag prints aborted, purged, incomplete and
recoverable save sets in addition to the complete, browsable save sets
printed by default. The -v flag also causes three additional fields to
be displayed: the creation time, the internal save set identifier
(ssid), and two flags. One character is used per flag.
The first flag indicates which part of the save set is on the volume.
When the save is completely contained on the volume, a c is displayed.
An h is displayed when the save set spans volumes and the head is
contained on this volume. The remaining sections will be on other
volumes. An m is displayed when the save set spans volumes and a
middle section is contained on this volume. The head and tail sections
will be on different volumes. There may be more than one middle
section. A t is displayed when the tail section of a spanning save set
is contained on this volume. Again, the other sections will be on
The second flag indicates the status of the save set. A b indicates
that the save set is in the online index and is browsable via the
recover(8) command. An r indicates that the save set is not in the
online index and is recoverable via the scanner(8) command. An E
indicates that the save set has been marked eligible for recycling and
may be over-written at any time. An a indicates that the save was
aborted before completion. Aborted save sets are removed from the
online file index by nsrck(8). An i indicates that the save is still
An optional third flag indicates the type of save set. An N indicates
an NDMP save set. An R indicates a raw partition backup, eg., Networker
Modules like Oracle, Sybase and others that Networker supports. It
does not denote the save set contains files utilizing the rawasm
directive. A P indicates a snapshot save set.
An optional fourth flag s indicates whether an NDMP save set was backed
up via nsrdsa_save to a NetWorker storage node.
The -V flag displays even more detail than the -v flag. This format
also displays information such as, media file number and record number
that can be used to speed the operation of the scanner(8) command. The
-v flag displays one line per save set per volume. The -V flag displays
three lines for each section of a save set occuring within a file on a
volume. A single save set will have multiple index entries if it
starts in one file on a volume and ends in another. This report
contains all of the information reported via the -v flag, but, because
of the additional detail, some of this information is reordered. The
first line will contain the volume name, the client's name, the size
saved in that section, the save set level, and the save set name. The
size field lists the number of bytes that are contained in the section,
rather than the total amount of the save set on this volume. The
second line contains the following fields: the internal save set
identifier (ssid), the save time in seconds since 00:00:00 GMT, Jan 1,
1970, the creation data and time of day, the internal save set
identifier (ssid), the save set browse time, and the clone instance
retention time. The third line contains: the offset of the first and
last bytes of the save set contained within section, the media file
number, the first record within the media file containing data for this
save set, the internal volume identifier (volid), the total size of the
save set, and the flags, described in the -v paragraph above,
indicating which part of the save set is contained in this media file
(c, h, m, or t) and the save set's status (b, r, a, or i).
The -p flag causes mminfo to display a report on the browse and
retention times for save sets. Each line of the report displays the
save set creation date, and the stored browse and retention dates
(`undef' is displayed when connecting to a downrev server), the save
set identifier, the client's name, and the save set's name. The -v and
-V options have no effect on the columns included in this report.
The -m flag causes mminfo to display the name of each volume in the
media database, the number of bytes written to it, the percent of space
used (or the word `full' indicating that the volume is filled to
capacity), the retention (expiration) time, the number of bytes read,
the number of times the read-label operation has been performed on the
volume (not the count of explicit mounts), and the volume's capacity.
Volumes that are recyclable (see nsrim(8)) are flagged by an E in the
first column (meaning Eligible for recycling). If a volume has been
marked as manually-recyclable, an M is displayed instead of the E. If
a volume is both manually-recyclable and eligible for recycling, an X
will be displayed. Archive and migration volumes are flagged by an A,
also in the first column. If the volume is not an archive or migration
volume, and is not recyclable, no flag appears.
Specifying the -v flag with the -m flag causes three additional fields
to be displayed: the internal volume identifier (volid), the number of
the next file to be written, and the type of media.
Using a -V flag with the -m adds a column of flags to the output.
There are currently two possible flags. The d flag is set if the
volume is currently being written (dirty). The r flag is set if the
volume is marked as read-only. If neither condition is present, the
flags column will be empty.
The -S flag displays a long, multiline save set report, which is used
for debugging. The number of lines varies per save set. Due to the
length, there are no column headers. Instead, each attribute of the
save set is displayed in a `name=value' manner, except the client and
save set name, which are displayed as `client:name', and the extended
attributes, described below. The first line of each multiline group
starts on the left margin and includes the save set identifier (ssid),
save time as both a date/time string and seconds since 00:00:00 GMT,
Jan 1, 1970, and the client and save set names. Subsequent lines for
this save set are indented. If the save set is part of a save set
series (a `continued save set') and is not the first in the series, the
save set identifier of the previous save set in the series in shown on
the second line by itself. The next line displays the level, the save
set flags (in `ssflags' format, as described in the table in the CUSTOM
QUERIES AND REPORTS section), the save set size in bytes, the number of
files in the save set, and the save set insertion date. The next line
displays the save set's create, completion, browse and retention
(expiration) dates. The string `undef' for any of the values on these
two lines generally means an older server that does not store these
values is being queried. If the client identifier is set, it is
printed on the next line. If the save set has extended attributes
(such as the group to which the save set was a part or the archive
annotation), they are printed next, at most one attribute per line.
The format of each extended attribute is "name: values;". The clones
or instances of the save set are shown last (every save set has at
least once instance). The first line of each clone shown the clone
identifier, the date and time the instance was created, the clone
retention date, and the per-clone flags (in `clflags' format from the
CUSTOM QUERIES AND REPORTS table). For each instance, each section of
that instance is shown as a fragment line. The fragment line shows the
offset of that fragment from the beginning of the save set, the volume
identifier (volid) containing the fragment, the media file and record
numbers of start of the fragment, an absolute positioning identifier
(unused by existing servers), and the date of last access of the
fragment. The -v and -V options have no effect on this report. The -o
sort order options o and m are ignored when -S is specified.
The -X flag prepares a save set summary report instead of one or more
lines per save set. Note that the entire media database must be
examined to resolve this query, making it very slow and expensive. If
used in conjunction with the a option, the query of all volumes is done
to check for save sets. If used without the a option, only save set
information in the last 24 hours, is considered. The summary lists the
total number of save sets, and breaks the total down into several
overlapping categories summarizing the save set types. The recent save
set usage, if appropriate to the query, is also printed. The
categories are the number of fulls, the number of incrementals, the
number of other non-full, non-incremental saves, the number of ad hoc,
archive, migration, empty and purged save sets, the number of index
save sets, and finally, the number of incomplete save sets. For recent
usage, the number of save sets per day is shown, up to a week ago,
along with a summary of the week's save sets and, if applicable, a
summary of the month's save sets. For each line, the number of files
(saved in the time interval specified), number of save sets, total
size, average size per save set, and average size per file are listed.
The percentage of the amount saved for incrementals versus fulls and
the percentage of browsable files are also printed, when appropriate.
The -v and -V options have no effect on the summary report.
The -B flag performs a canned query to output, in a convenient format,
the list of bootstraps generated in the previous five weeks. In this
format, there is one line of output for each matched save set. Each
line contains the save date and time, save level, save set identifier
(ssid), starting file number, starting record number, and the volume.
The equivalent query is described below in the EXAMPLES section. The
-v and -V options have no effect on the bootstrap display.
OPTIONS-a Causes queries to apply to all complete, browsable save sets,
not just those in the last 24 hours. This option is implied by
the -c, -N, -q, -m, and -o options, described below. When
combined with a media-only report (-m or a custom report showing
only media information), -a applies to all volumes, not just
those with complete and browsable save sets.
Restricts the reported information to the media and/or save sets
pertaining to the specified client. This is similar to
specifying a client name using the queryspec (see -q option)
name. In both cases the names are matched using a case
insensitive string comparsion. If the reportspec (see -r option)
includes volume, the reported information will include those
pertaining to the aliases of the client. If information relating
to the aliases of the client is not required in the output, when
the reportspec includes volume, the -l option needs to be used
in conjunction with -c client.
-l This option when used with -c client along with reportspec (see
-r option) containing volume, the output will not include all
the information pertaining to the aliases of the specific
-m Displays a media report instead of the default save set report
(in other words, a report about the media containing save sets,
not the save sets themselves).
Restricts the reported information to the media and/or save sets
pertaining to the specified save set name.
Sorts the output in the specified order. Before displaying the
save sets, they are sorted by various fields. Numeric fields
are sorted least to greatest, other fields are sorted
alphabetically. order may be any combination of the letters
celmnotR, representing client, expiration date, length, media
name, name of save set, offset on media (file and record
number), time, and Reverse, respectively. The default sorting
order for save set reports is mocntl. The offset fields (file
and record) are only considered when the -V option has been
selected and for custom reports that show save set section
(fragment) information. When applied to -m media-only reports,
the length is the amount used on the volume, the time is the
last time the media was accessed, and the other order flags are
-p Displays a report on the browse and retention times for save
sets, described above.
Adds the given query constraint to the list of constraints on
the current query. Multiple -q options may be given. See the
CUSTOM QUERIES AND REPORTS section below for the syntax of the
Appends the given report specification to the list of attributes
to be displayed for the current query. Multiple -r options may
be given. See the CUSTOM QUERIES AND REPORTS section below for
the syntax of the reportspec.
Displays volume and save set information from the NetWorker
system on server. See nsr(8) for a description of server
selection. The default is the current system.
Restricts the reported information to the media and/or save sets
pertaining to the save sets created on or after time. See
nsr_getdate(3) for a description of the recognized time formats.
The default is `yesterday', except when using the following
switches: -a, -B, -c, -N, -m, -o and -q. When using those
switches, there is no default value for time. If you wish to
see only the backups since yesterday, you will have to specify
`-t yesterday' explicitly.
-v Turns on the verbose display reports, described above.
As an alternative to the default human-readable output format,
exportspec provides for two styles of program-readable output
formats. The exportspec `m' displays XML output, while
exportspec `c<separator>' displays values separated by any
single character or string. For example, `mminfo -xc,' will
produce comma-separated values.
-B Runs the canned query to report bootstraps which have been
generated in the past five weeks, as described above. This
option is used by savegrp(8) when saving the server's index and
-S Displays a long, multiline save set report, as described above.
-V Displays additional verbose report output, as described above.
-X Prepares a summary report, as described above.
CUSTOM QUERIES AND REPORTS
The custom query and report options of mminfo allow one to generate
media and save set reports matching complex constraints without
resorting to pipelines and scripts. This section describes the syntax
of custom query and report specifications, and gives some simple
examples. Further examples are shown in the EXAMPLES section, below.
The custom query option, -q queryspec, is an extension to the shorthand
query options, such as -c client, which allow you to make queries based
on almost any media or save set attribute in the database, and allow
various comparisons in addition to the simple equality comparison
provided by the shorthand options. The format of a queryspec is
[!] name [ comp value ] [ , ... ]
where name is the name of a database attribute, listed in the table
below, comp is a valid comparator for the attribute, from the set `>',
`>=', `=', '<=', '<', and value is the value being compared. Leading
and trailing spaces can be used to separate the individual components
of the specification. The comparator and value must be specified for
all but flag attributes. Generally numeric attributes allow all five
comparators, and character string attributes generally only allow
equality. When comparing flags whose values are normally `true' and
`false', one may alternatively use the `[ ! ] name' syntax. The
`!name' form is equivalent to `name=false', and `name' by itself is
equivalent to `name=true'. The comparisons in the specification are
separated by commas. If a time or a string contains commas, you must
quote the value with single or double quotes. Quotes are escaped
within a string by repeating them. The following is a valid string
name="Joe's daily, ""hot"" Save Set"
Note that command line shells also interpret quotes, so you will need
to enclose the entire query within quotes, and quote the single value
inside the query, possibly with a different kind of quote, depending on
the shell. Except for multiple character-string values, explained
below, all of the specified constraints must match a given save set
and/or media volume before a line will be printed in the report.
Multiple -q options may be specified, and may be combined with the
shorthand query constraints -c, -N and -t. The order of the above
query constraints is unimportant.
Numeric constraints, except for identifiers (volume, save set and clone
identifiers), allow ranges to be specified, and all character string
constraints allow multiple possible values to be specified. Note that
times and levels are considered to be numeric values, not character
strings. The upper and lower bounds of a numeric range are specified
as two separate constraints. For example,
matches volumes that are between 20% and 80% used. All strings are
also lists except 'attributes and volume attributes'. Each possible
value of a given character-string attribute is specified as a separate
equality constraint. For example,
matches save sets from the client `pegasus' or the client `avalon'.
Example, if `group' string attribute is used multiple times, the
`mminfo' query would be
mminfo-av -q `group=Default, group=Test'
This would report save sets for both `Default' and `Test' groups.
The custom report option, -r reportspec, allows one to specify exactly
which media and save set attributes should be shown in the report, the
order of the columns, the column widths, and where line breaks should
be placed. The format of a reportspec is
name [ (width) ] [ , name [ (width) ] ... ]
where name is the name of a database attribute, listed below, and the
optional width, enclosed in parentheses, specifies how wide the column
should be. Leading and trailing spaces are ignored. The default
column width depends on the attribute; default widths are also shown in
the table below. Multiple -r options may be specified. The order of
the columns in the report will be left to right, and correspond to the
order of the attribute names specified. Each line of output will
contain all of the data requested (you can cause line breaks within a
logical line by using the newline attribute name). If a value does not
fit in the requested column width, subsequent values in the line will
be shifted to the right (values are truncated at 256 characters).
The table below lists all of the recognized attribute names, their
valid range of query values (or `NA' for attributes that are only valid
for report specifications), their default column width in characters
(or `NA' for flag attributes that are only valid for query
specifications), and a short description.
Numeric attributes (shown as number in the valid range column of the
table) can be specified using any of the comparators listed above, and
can be used in range comparisons.
The =id attributes are used for various identifiers (volume identifier,
save set identifier, and so on) and only allow equality comparisons.
In most cases, if the column is narrow (less that 50 characters), only
the short ID is shown, which correponds to the ID used by downrev
servers. If the column is wide enough, the full ID is shown. Client
identifiers always display as full IDs, and clone identifiers always
display as short IDs.
Flag attributes have the values `true' or `false', only apply as query
constraints, and have corresponding flag summary strings for report
Time attributes are specified in nsr_getdate(3) format and are
otherwise treated as numeric attributes (note that you will need to
quote times that contain commas). The special time `forever', when
used as an expiration date, means a save set or volume will never
expire. The special time `undef' is displayed when the time is
undefined. When output, times are displayed according to local
settings, usually as MM/DD/YY HH:MM:SS for numeric month, day year
(last two digits), hours, minutes, and seconds, respectively. If the
column is very narrow (less that 17 characters), only the date is
shown. Columns 22 characters wide will generally print the full date.
This is dependent on the format reported by the operating system. If
the returned date and time will not fit in the specified columns, only
the date is shown.
Size and kbsize attributes may have a scale factor appended to them:
`KB' for kilobytes, `MB' for megabytes, `GB' for gigabytes, `TB' for
terabytes, `PB' for petabytes, or `EB' for exabytes. The default scale
(when no scale is explicitly specified) on query constraints for
attributes is bytes; the default for kbsize attributes is kilobytes.
The scale varies in reports, depending on the actual value.
String attributes may be any arbitrary character string, enclosed in
quotes if necessary, as described above in the query syntax paragraph.

no matches found for the query
No save sets or volumes were found in the database that matched
all of the constraints of the query.
invalid volume name `volname'
The volume name given is not in a valid format. Note that
volume names may not begin with a dash. Queries that match no
volumes will return the error `no matches found for the query'.
only one of -m, -B, -S, -X or -r may be specified
Only one report can be generated at a time. Use separate runs
of mminfo to obtain multiple reports.
invalid sorting order specifier, choose from `celmnotR'
Only letters from celmnotR may be used with the -o option.
only one -o allowed
Only one sorting order may be specified.
only one -s allowed
Only one server can be queried at one time. Use multiple runs
of mminfo to obtain reports from multiple servers.
Out of Memory
The query exhausted available memory. Try issuing it again,
using the sorting order -om, or make the query more restrictive
(for example, list specific volumes, clients, and/or save set
invalid value specified for `attribute'
The value specified is either out of range (for example, a
negative number for a value that can only take positive
numbers), the wrong type (an alphabetic string value specified
for a numeric attribute), or just poorly formatted (for example,
non-blank characters between a close quote and the next comma or
a missing close quote).
value of `attribute' is too long
The value specified for attribute is longer than the maximum
accepted value. Query attributes must have values less than 65
non-overlapping range specified for `attribute'
The range specified for attribute is a non-overlapping numeric
range, and cannot possibly match any save set or volume in the
unknown query constraint: attribute
The given query attribute is not valid. See the CUSTOM QUERIES
AND REPORTS table for a list of all valid attribute names.
need a value for query constraint `attribute'
The attribute is not a flag, and must be specified in the `name
comparator value' format.
constraint `attribute' is only valid for reports
The attribute specified for a query may only by used in report
(-r) specifications. Calculated values, flag summaries, save
set extended attributes, and formatting tools (space and
newline) may not be used in queries.
invalid comparator for query constraint `attribute'
The comparator used is not valid for the given attribute. See
the CUSTOM QUERIES AND REPORTS section for a list of the valid
comparators for attribute.
query constraint `attribute' specified more than once
The given attribute was specified more than once with the same
comparator, and is not a string attribute (string attributes can
match one of several specific values).
unknown report constraint: attribute
The given report attribute is not valid; see the CUSTOM QUERIES
AND REPORTS table for a list of all valid attribute names.
constraint `attribute' is only valid for queries
The attribute specified for a report is a flag matching
attribute and may only be used in query (-q) specifications.
See the CUSTOM QUERIES AND REPORTS table for the appropriate
flag summary attribute that one may use in reports of a given
column width of `attribute' is invalid
The width specified for attribute is out of range. Column
widths must be positive numbers less than 256.
missing close parenthesis after report constraint
The width of attribute is missing a close parenthesis.
missing comma after report constraint `attribute'
There are non-blank characters after the width specification for
attribute without any comma preceding them.
No data requested, no report generated
The given report specification contains only formatting, no data
You cannot specify save set extended attributes as query constraints.
You cannot list several possible equality matches for numbers, only for
Some queries, namely those that are not highly selective (few query
constraints) and use a sorting order where the volume name is not the
primary sort key, still require mminfo to retrieve the entire database
before printing any of it. Such queries use large amounts of memory in
mminfo, but not, as was the case with older versions, in nsrmmdbd.
You cannot make a report that shows save set or media instances and a
summary without running mminfo at least twice.
You cannot specify query constraints that compare database attributes
with each other.
You cannot make a report that uses -B flag with -c flag.
