Displaying Quick I/O status and file attributes

You can obtain and display information about Quick I/O status and file attributes using various options of the ls command:

-al

Lists all files on a file system, including Quick I/O files and their links.

-1L

Shows if Quick I/O was successfully installed and enabled.

-a1L

Shows how a Quick I/O file name is resolved to that of a raw device.

To list all files on the current file system, including Quick I/O files and their links

  • Use the ls -al command with the file names:

    $ ls -al filename .filename

    The following example shows how to use the -a option to display the absolute path name which was created using qiomkfile:

    $ ls -al d* .d*
    -rw-r--r--		1 sybase 	sybase 	104890368		Oct 2 13:42		.dbfile
    
    lrwxrwxrwx		1 sybase  sybase 	   19		    Oct 2 13:42		 dbfile ->
     .dbfile::cdev:vxfs:
    

To determine if a Sybase segment has been converted to Quick I/O

  • Use the ls command as follows:

    $ ls -lL filename

    The following example shows how to determine if Quick I/O is installed and enabled:

    $ ls -lL dbfile
    crw-r--r--			1 sybase 	dba		45, 1		Oct 2 13:42		dbfile
    

To show a Quick I/O file resolved to a raw device

  • Use the ls command with the file names as follows:

    $ ls -alL filename .filename

    The following example shows how the Quick I/O file name dbfile is resolved to that of a raw device:

    $ ls -alL d* .d*
    crw-r--r--			1 sybase 	 sybase 	 45,  1 	 			  Oct 2 13:42				dbfile
    
    -rw-r--r--			1 sybase 	 sybase			104890368				 Oct 2 13:42				.dbfile
