6.6.5 myisamlog — Display MyISAM Log File Contents

myisamlog processes the contents of a MyISAM log file. To create such a file, start the server with a --log-isam=log_file option.

Invoke myisamlog like this:

myisamlog [options] [file_name [tbl_name] ...]

The default operation is update (-u). If a recovery is done (-r), all writes and possibly updates and deletes are done and errors are only counted. The default log file name is myisam.log if no log_file argument is given. If tables are named on the command line, only those tables are updated.

  • -?, -I

    Display a help message and exit.

  • -c N

  • -f N

    Specify the maximum number of open files.

  • -F filepath/

  • -i

  • -p N

  • -r
