ERA_DUMP(8)                                                        ERA_DUMP(8)



NAME
       era_dump - dump era metadata from device or file to standard output


SYNOPSIS
       era_dump [options] {device|file}


DESCRIPTION
       era_dump dumps binary era metadata created by the device-mapper era target on a device or file to standard out-
       put for analysis or postprocessing in XML format.  XML formated metadata  can  be  fed  into  era_restore  (see
       era_restore(8))  in  order  to  put  it back onto a metadata device (to process by the device-mapper target) or
       file.

       This tool cannot be run on live metadata.


       -r, --repair
       Repair the metadata whilst dumping it.


       -h, --help
       Print help and exit.


       -V, --version
       Output version information and exit.


       --logical
       Fold any unprocessed write sets into the final era array.  You probably want to do this if you're intending  to
       process the results as it simplifies the XML.


EXAMPLES
       Dumps era metadata on logical volume /dev/vg/metadata to standard output in XML format:

       era_dump /dev/vg/metadata


DIAGNOSTICS
       era_dump returns an exit code of 0 for success or 1 for error.
