DAOS Manager Tell commands

You use Tell commands with the Domino® Attachment and Object Service (DAOS) Manager process.

Table 1. DAOS Manager Tell commands



Tell DAOSMgr Quit

Stops DAOS Manager process, cleans up, and exits.

Tell DAOSMgr Help

Lists DAOS Manager options.

Tell DAOSMgr Status

Displays status of various DAOS Manager operations.

Tell DAOSMgr Status database_name

Displays DAOS status of the database with database_name, for example, mymail.nsf.

Tell DAOSMgr Status Catalog

Displays status of the DAOS catalog.

Tell DAOSMgr Dbsummary

Displays status of all DAOS-enabled databases.

Tell DAOSMgr Databases

Displays status of all DAOS-enabled databases with additional details, for example, a database's last resynchronization point.

Tell DAOSMgr ListNLO

Lists DAOS objects (.NLO files) in the DAOS storage repository, allowing an administrator to identify documents whose objects may be missing after an event such as a server restore or the deletion of a database file through the operating system. You can restore the missing objects from backup sources. Files are missing when they are still referenced by documents in at least one database, but are no longer present in the repository.

You can enter -o to specify the name of an output file, the keyword ALL or MISSING to list all or just missing files, and the name of a database whose objects to list. For example:

tell daosmgr listnlo -o mymailobjects.txt MISSING mymail.nsf

Tell DAOSMgr Prune number of days old

With no argument, displays the current setting for Defer object deletion for n days, also known as the deferred delete interval, specified on the DAOS tab of the Server document.

With the argument 0, immediately deletes all DAOS unreferenced objects.

With the number of days old argument, immediately deletes all DAOS unreferenced objects that are older than the argument, overriding the delete interval specified in the Server document.

CAUTION: Objects that have not been backed up since the specified duration are at risk of being unrecoverable.

Tell DAOSMgr Resync

Resynchronizes DAOS-enabled databases with DAOS objects in the storage repository. Resynchronization is necessary whenever DAOS reference counts need to be recalculated, for example when there has been a database restore, deletion of a database through the operating system, or any other event that can invalidate the count.

Resynchronization corrects mismatches between reference counts in the DAOS catalog (DAOSCAT.NSF) and actual objects found. When a mismatch is detected, DAOS disallows pruning of attachment objects (.NLO files) until DAOS is synchronized using this command.

You can set a time window for resynchronization so that it occurs during quiet hours. For more information, see the related topics.

Tell DAOSMgr Resync Force

Runs the resynchronization command whether or not the DAOS catalog is in a synchronized state.

Tell DAOSMgr Resync Quick

Runs the resynchronization command, but without reference counts on the .NLO files, leaving the catalog in the RESYNCING state, and preventing the nightly prune process from running. A quick resync makes DAOS operational if it is needed during production hours, allowing new .NLO files to be created and all existing ones read.

After a quick resync, the next full resync is needed to complete the process by scanning databases and adjusting reference counts.
