Oracle ACFS Command-Line Utilities for Multiple Environments

Table 13-71 contains a summary of the Oracle ACFS command utilities for multiple environments.

When the options are entered with commands on a Windows platform, use / instead of - with the option. For example, to display help for acfsutil on a Linux platform, use acfsutil -h. On a Windows platform, use acfsutil /h.

Note that a mount point on a Windows operating system can be a drive letter or a directory including the drive letter.

You can use acfsutil help on all platforms to display help text. You run acfsutil version on all platforms to display the Oracle ACFS version.

acfsdbg

Purpose

Debugs an Oracle ACFS file system.

Syntax and Description


acfsdbg -h
acfsdbg [-r] [-l] volume_device

Table 13-72 contains the options available with the acfsdbg command.

Table 13-72 Options for the acfsdbg command

Option Description

-h

Prints out the usage message which displays the various options that are available when invoking the acfsdbg command, then exits.

-r

Operates in read-only mode. No data is modified on the file system and all write commands are disabled. If the device is mounted anywhere, acfsdbg may not display the latest data because some of it is cached by the file system mounts.

-l

Processes kernel log files. The default is to not process the log files.

volume_device

Specifies the device name of the volume.


acfsdbg is an extension to fsck and acfschkdsk, and is an interactive program that views and modifies on disk structures of the file system. This command is intended for experienced development and support engineers to examine on disk structures to diagnose problems. Use with caution.

When acfsdbg is started, it displays a command prompt. At the command prompt, you can enter the subcommands listed in Table 13-73.

You can also use acfsdbg for scripts by echoing acfsdbg subcommands with a shell pipe to the acfsdbg binary.

By default the file system is not modified when running the tool. If the -l option is used, the file system metadata in the transaction logs is applied before the interactive disk block dump session. The volume device must specify a volume with a dismounted Oracle ACFS file system. If the volume device has a mounted Oracle ACFS file system, acfsdbg displays an error message and exits.

You must be the administrator or a member of the Oracle ASM administrator group to run acfsdbg.

Subcommands

Table 13-73 lists the subcommands of acfsdbg.

acfsutil info id

Purpose

Displays Oracle ACFS file system information for a given identifier and mount point.

Syntax and Description


acfsutil info id -h
acfsutil info id num mount_point

acfsutil info id -h displays help text and exits.

Table 13-76 contains the options available with the acfsutil info id command.

Table 13-76 Options for the acfsutil info id command

Option Description

mount_point

Specifies the directory where the file system is mounted.

num

Specifies the Oracle ACFS file identifier number reported by the Oracle ACFS driver. The number should be specified in decimal format.


acfsutil info id is used to translate an internal numeric Oracle ACFS file identifier to a path name in the file system. This is useful when the Oracle ACFS driver reports I/O errors to the system event logger associated with a particular file in an Oracle ACFS and identifies it by its internal identifier. You must have administrator privileges or you must be a member of the Oracle ASM administrator group to run acfsutil info id.

Examples

The following is an example of acfsutil info id.

Example 13-69 Using the acfsutil info id command

$ /sbin/acfsutil info id /u01/app/acfsmounts/myacfs

acfsutil registry

Purpose

Registers an Oracle ACFS file system with the Oracle ACFS mount registry.

Syntax and Description


acfsutil registry [-h]
acfsutil registry
acfsutil registry -a [-f] [-n { nodes|all } ]
         [-o moptions] device mount_point
acfsutil registry -d {device | mount_point}
acfsutil registry -l [device | mount_point]
acfsutil registry -m device

acfsutil registry -h displays help text and exits.

Table 13-77 contains the options available with the acfsutil registry command.

Table 13-77 Options for the acfsutil registry command

Option Description

-a

Specifies to add the device, mount point, and associated moptions to the Oracle ACFS mount registry. The Oracle ASM volume device specified must exist on the local node to add the information to the mount registry.

The arguments represent all the information needed to mount the file system. At Oracle ACFS startup time these file systems are automatically mounted. On Windows the volume mount points on the specified directories are created if they do not exist.

Duplicate device entries are not allowed. Duplicate mount points are allowed but must be include the -n option for disjoint node-specific mounts.

-d

Deletes the device or mount point from the Oracle ACFS mount registry. If a mount point is specified and it is not unique in the Oracle ACFS mount registry, the command fails and you must run the command again specifying the device as an argument.

-f

This is used in combination with -a when the specified device might exist in the registry and the administrator wants to replace the registration.

-n

This is used in combination with -a and specifies an optional comma-delimited list of nodes, or the all keyword. This specifies which nodes should attempt to mount this device on the specified mount point. Host names should be specified. The all keyword is functionally equivalent to not specifying a list of nodes and indicates that the device should be mounted on all nodes. Mounting on all nodes is the default behavior.

-o moptions

Specifies the mount options for use when mounting the file system. For Linux only. All options are available except the all option. See "mount".

-l

Lists all the mount points currently in the registry on a single line, with fields separated by a colon (:).

-m

Lists the registered mount point, if one exists, associated with the specified device. The mount point is only returned if the Oracle ACFS file system has been registered or has been previously mounted.

mount_point

Specifies the directory where the file system is mounted.

device

Specifies an Oracle ACFS device file that has been formatted.


acfsutil registry adds or deletes a file system from the Oracle ACFS persistent mount registry. The mount registry is a global registry that is used at Oracle ACFS startup on each node to mount all file systems specified in it. root or asmadmin privileges are required to modify the registry. For information about operating system group privileges, see "About Privileges for Oracle ASM".

Any user is allowed to display the contents of the registry. To mount all the file systems in the Oracle ACFS mount registry, use the platform specific mount command with the all option. This is done automatically at Oracle ACFS startup on each node.

If no options are specified, the command displays all of the Oracle ACFS mounts in the registry.

Note:

Do not register an Oracle ACFS file system that has had an individual file system Cluster Ready Services (CRS) resource added. For example, do not register a file system with acfsutil registry if the Oracle ACFS file system has been registered using srvctl add filesystem.

See "About the Oracle ACFS Mount Registry".

Examples

The following examples show the use of acfsutil registry. The first example shows how to add the volume device file and file system mount point to the registry. The second example shows how to list the registered mount point associated with the specified volume device file. The third example shows how to delete the specified volume device file from the registry.

Example 13-70 Using the acfsutil registry command

$ /sbin/acfsutil registry -a /dev/asm/volume1-123 /u01/app/acfsmounts/myacfs

$ /sbin/acfsutil registry -m /dev/asm/volume1-123

$ /sbin/acfsutil registry -d /dev/asm/volume1-123

acfsutil rmfs

Purpose

Removes an Oracle ACFS file system.

Syntax and Description


acfsutil [-h]
acfsutil rmfs device

acfsutil rmfs -h displays help text and exits.

Table 13-78 contains the options available with the acfsutil rmfs command.

Table 13-78 Options for the acfsutil rmfs command

Option Description

device

Specifies an Oracle ACFS device file that has been formatted.


acfsutil rmfs is used to remove an Oracle ACFS that is dismounted. When the command is run, the superblock of the file system is disabled. root or asmadmin privileges are required to run this command. For information about operating system group privileges, see "About Privileges for Oracle ASM".

After acfsutil rmfs runs successfully, the MOUNTPATH and USAGE columns in the V$ASM_VOLUME view are cleared for the device. The removed Oracle ACFS can be restored using fsck or acfschkdsk. The device can be reformatted with a new Oracle ACFS using the mkfs or acfsformat commands.

Examples

The following example shows the use of acfsutil rmfs to remove the specified volume device file and associated file system.

Example 13-71 Using the acfsutil rmfs command

$ /sbin/acfsutil rmfs /dev/asm/volume1-123

acfsutil size

Purpose

Resizes an Oracle ACFS file system.

Syntax and Description


acfsutil size [-h]
acfsutil size [+|-]n[K|M|G|T|P ] [device] mount_point

acfsutil size -h displays help text and exits.

Table 13-79 contains the options available with the acfsutil size command.

Table 13-79 Options for the acfsutil size command

Option Description

[+|-]n

Specifies the new size for the Oracle ACFS file system where n is a valid positive whole number greater than zero. The number can be preceded by a + or - to indicate the amount to add or decrease. If no operand exists, the new size is the absolute size.

K|M|G|T|P

Specifies that the integer supplied for size is in the units of K (Kilobytes), M (Megabytes), G (Gigabytes), T (Terabytes), or P (Petabytes). If the unit indicator is specified, then it must be appended to the integer. If omitted, the default unit is bytes.

device

Specifies the optional volume device file.

mount_point

Specifies the directory where the file system is mounted


acfsutil size grows or shrinks the mounted Oracle ACFS and its underlying Oracle ADVM storage to match the new size specified. This operation also resizes the underlying Oracle ASM Volume file to match the new length that is specified. The disk group must have enough free storage to accommodate any requested increase to the file system size.

Reducing a file system size returns unused storage space located at the end of the file system to the disk group. Shrinking in this release is intended for accidents when the wrong initial size or resize increment was specified, and before the storage was actually used. After storage has been used for user data or file system metadata, it may not be possible to shrink the file system, even if the files using that storage have been deleted.

Note:

Defragmenting a file system is not supported in this release; only unused storage can be deallocated from the end of the file system.

The size value is rounded up based on the block size of the file system and the allocation unit of the Oracle ASM volume device file. To determine the Oracle ASM volume device resize increment, examine the RESIZE_UNIT_MB field in the V$ASM_VOLUME view, or look for Resize Unit in the output of asmcmd volinfo.

There is a limit of 5 extents for the file system's internal storage bitmap. This causes any attempts to increase the file system to fail after it has been increased four or more times. However, if after increasing the file system four times or more times the file system size is decreased, then you may be able to increase the file system size again if the size of the increase is less than the size of the decrease.

When the limit on a file system expansion has been reached, running fsck or acfschkdsk with the -a option may consolidate the internal storage bitmap, allowing future file system expansion.

root or users who are members of the asmadmin group can run this command. For information about operating system group privileges, see "About Privileges for Oracle ASM".

Examples

The following example shows the use of acfsutil size. This example increases the primary device file of /u01/app/acfsmounts/myacfs file system by 500 MB.

Example 13-72 Using the acfsutil size command

$ /sbin/acfsutil size +500M /u01/app/acfsmounts/myacfs

acfsutil snap create

Purpose

Creates a read-only snapshot of an Oracle ACFS file system.

Syntax and Description


acfsutil snap create [-h]
acfsutil snap create snapshot mount_point

acfsutil snap create -h displays help text and exits.

Table 13-80 contains the options available with the acfsutil snap create command.

Table 13-80 Options for the acfsutil snap create command

Option Description

snapshot

Specifies a name for the snapshot. The.ACFS/snaps directory itself cannot be snapped.

mount_point

Specifies the directory where the file system is mounted.


acfsutil snap create creates a read-only snapshot of the Oracle ACFS mounted on mount_point. Snapshots are not separate file systems. The snapshot appears in.ACFS/snaps/snapshot and is a complete replica of the file system at the time the snapshot command was given. Snapshots usually use very little storage initially as they share file system blocks with the original file system until a file changes.

Tools such as du report the total disk space usage of the snapshotted files, which includes the storage shared with the original versions of the files. To determine the total space used for the snapshots, use the acfsutil info fs command. See "acfsutil info file".

Oracle ACFS snapshots are immediately available for use after they are created. They are always online under the.ACFS/snaps directory when the original file system is mounted. No separate command is needed to mount them.The last modification time of .ACFS/snaps/snapshot is set to the time the snapshot was created, not the last modification time of the root directory of the file system at the time of the snapshot creation. You can use an ls -l or similar command in the.ACFS/snaps directory to determine the age of each snapshot.

Administrator privileges are required to use this command or you must be a member of the Oracle ASM administrator group.

For more information about Oracle ACFS snapshots, see "About Oracle ACFS Snapshots".

Examples

The following examples show the use of acfsutil snap create. The first and second examples create snapshots of the Oracle ACFS file system mounted on /u01/app/acfsmounts/myacfs. The third example lists the contents of the .ACFS/snaps directory.

Example 13-73 Using the acfsutil snap create command

$ /sbin/acfsutil snap create mysnapshot_0900609b /u01/app/acfsmounts/myacfs

$ /sbin/acfsutil snap create mysnapshot_0900609c /u01/app/acfsmounts/myacfs

$ ls /u01/app/acfsmounts/myacfs/.ACFS/snaps
mysnapshot_0900609a  mysnapshot_0900609b  mysnapshot_0900609c

The only Oracle ACFS tunable parameter is the Windows specific AcfsMaxOpenFiles, which limits the number of open Oracle ACFS files on Windows. Normally you do not have to change the value of this tunable parameter.

Changing a tunable parameter has an immediate effect and persists across restarts. You must be a root user or the Windows Administrator to change the value of a tunable parameter.

Examples

The first example prints Oracle ACFS tunable parameters. The second example changes the value of a tunable parameter.

Example 13-75 Using the acfsutil tune command

$ /sbin/acfsutil tune

$ acfsutil tune AcfsMaxOpenFiles=50000

advmutil canonical

Purpose

advmutil canonical displays the canonical name of the specified Oracle ADVM device name.

Syntax and Description


advmutil [-h ]
advmutil canonical volume_device

advmutil canonical -h displays help text and exits.

Table 13-83 contains the options available with the advmutil canonical command.

Table 13-83 Options for the advmutil canonical command

Option Description

volume_device

Specifies a string identifying a Oracle ADVM volume device.


There are several different formats that can identify an Oracle ADVM volume device, but a normalized, unambiguous (canonical) name should be used when the volume device name is used with other commands such as SRVCTL.

For example, on the Windows operating system you can use the following prefixes with a volume device name: \\.\, \??\, \\?\

The advmutil canonical command would return the canonical name that another utility would recognize without having to strip off extra characters. The command would most likely be used in a script.

Examples

The following examples show the use of advmutil canonical on a Windows operating system. For each example, the command returns the canonical name of the volume device.

Example 13-76 Using advmutil canonical

[C:\]advmutil canonical asm-volume1-274
asm-volume1-274
 
[C:\]advmutil canonical \\.\asm-volume1-274
asm-volume1-274
 
[C:\]advmutil canonical \\?\asm-volume1-274
asm-volume1-274
 
[C:\]advmutil canonical \??\asm-volume1-274
asm-volume1-274

advmutil tune

Purpose

advmutil tune displays the value of a specific Oracle ADVM parameter or sets the value of a specific Oracle ADVM parameter.

Syntax and Description


advmutil [-h ]
advmutil tune parameter [= value]

advmutil tune -h displays help text and exits.

Table 13-84 contains the options available with the advmutil tune command.

Table 13-84 Options for the advmutil tune command

Option Description

parameter

Specifies the parameter for which you want to set or display the value.

value

Optional value provided to set the value of the specified parameter.


If a value is not provided, the advmutil tune command displays the value that is currently assigned to the specified parameter.

The parameters that can be specified with advmutil tune are the maximum kernel memory (max_memory) or the maximum time in minutes for the deadlock timer (deadlock_timer).

The maximum kernel memory (max_memory) specifies the maximum operating system (OS) kernel memory in megabytes that can be consumed by the Oracle ASM Dynamic Volume Manager driver to cache Oracle ASM extent maps.

Note:

The deadlock_timer parameter should only be set by Oracle Support Services.

Examples

The first example sets the maximum kernel memory. The second example queries the current setting for the maximum kernel memory to be consumed by the Oracle ADVM. The third example changes the maximum time in minutes for the deadlock timer. The fourth example queries the current setting of a parameter.

Example 13-77 Using advmutil tune

$ /sbin/advmutil tune max_memory = 40

$ /sbin/advmutil tune max_memory
  max_memory = 40 (0x28)

$ /sbin/advmutil tune deadlock_timer = 20

$ /sbin/advmutil tune deadlock_timer
  deadlock_timer = 20 (0x14)

advmutil volinfo

Purpose

advmutil volinfo displays information about Oracle ADVM volume devices.

Syntax and Description


advmutil volinfo [-h]
advmutil volinfo [-l][-L] volume_device

advmutil volinfo -h displays help text and exits.

Table 13-85 contains the options available with the advmutil volinfo command.

Table 13-85 Options for the advmutil volinfo command

Option Description

volume_device

Specifies the volume device name.

-l

Separates the Oracle ADVM volume device information by field descriptions and colons on one line.

-L

Separates the Oracle ADVM volume device information by spaces on one line.


advmutil volinfo displays information about the specified Oracle ADVM volume device in a list format by default. The -l option on Linux (/l on Windows) formats the display into a colon-separated string with field descriptions. The -L option on Linux (/L on Windows) formats the display into a space-separated string in a format suitable for scripting.

Examples

The first example displays information about an Oracle ADVM volume device, using the advmutil volinfo command with the volume device name. The second example displays information about the volume device using the -l option. The third example displays information about the volume device using the -L option.
