The hadbm utility is located in the HADB_install_dir /bin directory. The general syntax of the hadbm command is:
hadbm subcommand [-short-option [option-value]] [--long-option [option-value]] [operands]
The subcommand identifies the operation or task to perform. Subcommands are case-sensitive. Most commands have one operand (usually dbname), but some have none, and some have two.
Options modify how hadbm performs a subcommand. Options are case-sensitive. Each option has a long form and a short form. Precede the short form with a single dash (-); precede the long forms with two dashes (--). Most options require argument values, except for boolean options, which must be present to switch a feature on. Options are not required for successful execution of the command.
If a subcommand requires a database name, and you do not specify one, hadbm will use the default database, hadb.
The following illustrates the status subcommand:
hadbm status --nodes
