xrdpfc_print - Man Page

print content of XRootd ProxyFileCache meta data


xrdpfc_print [options] path ...

options: [-config file] [-unit B|kB|MB] [-json] [-indent chars] [-verbose] [-help]


The xrdpfc_print prints status of downloaded file blocks and access statistics of cached files.


-c | -config <file-name>

Xrootd configuration file. Used to load non-default file system (directive ofs.osslib) and prefix for the location of cached files (directive oss.localroot).

-v | -verbose

Prints state bit for each file block.

-u | -unit <B|kB|MB>

Specify unit for file-size and access byte-counts; buffer/block size is printed at most as kB. Downward rounding occurs for kB and MB. kB is the default.
This option does NOT apply to JSON output format, there the unit is always B.

-j | -json

Prints output in JSON format.

-i | -indent <int>

Specify alignment for JSON format. Default is -1: single line without any white-space.

-h | -help

Displays usage information.



Path to a cinfo file or directory for which the information is to be printed. Path can be relative or absolute. If the path begins with root:/ the path is assumed to be a LFN and gets translated via the standard OSS rules (in the least, it gets prefixed by the oss.localroot). In this case -config option is mandatory.
