Tooling

Archive Tool

Archive Tool allows you to validate, inspect and manage Aeron Archive data. You will need to know where your archive data is being stored and point the tool to that folder. If you have not specified this yourself, you can retrieve it from the ArchivingMediaDriver context – for example if your ArchivingMediaDriver was called archivingMediaDriver then the archive directory is found via archivingMediaDriver.archive().context().archiveDir().

Describe

Note

It is assumed that you're running ArchiveTool in the archive data folder and that you have built the Aeron all jar yourself, or downloaded it from Maven Central. If you are not running the tool from the archive directory, change the first argument from . to the correct directory.

Describe inspects the archive mark file and describes the data found in the folder.

java -cp aeron-all-*.jar io.aeron.archive.ArchiveTool . describe

Dump

Dump outputs the content of the Archive to the console in hex format. You can specify how many fragments per recording should be dumped if needed.

Sample output from the SimplestCase example is below.

java -cp aeron-all-*.jar io.aeron.archive.ArchiveTool . dump
