ndb_print_sys_file obtains diagnostic information from an NDB Cluster system file.
file_name is the name of a cluster
system file (sysfile). Cluster system files are located in a
data node's data directory
DataDir); the path
under this directory to system files matches the pattern
In each case, the
# represents a
number (not necessarily the same number). For more information,
see NDB Cluster Data Node File System Directory Files.
Like ndb_print_backup_file and
ndb_print_schema_file (and unlike most of the
NDB utilities that are
intended to be run on a management server host or to connect to
a management server) ndb_print_backup_file
must be run on a cluster data node, since it accesses the data
node file system directly. Because it does not make use of the
management server, this utility can be used when the management
server is not running, and even when the cluster has been
completely shut down.
