Dumps NetVault logs to a text or binary file.

Table 79. nvlogdump


Specifies the job ID for which logs are exported.


Specifies the name of the file to which logs are exported.

Depending on the dump format selected, the dump files are created in the binary or text directories under <NetVault home>\logs\dumps (on Windows) or <NetVault home>/logs/dumps (on Linux).

If you omit the -filename option, NetVault creates a file named CLI_DUMP_<YYYYMMDD>_<HHMMSS> in the specified format. The binary file has the extension “.nlg” and the text file has “.txt” extension.


Exports logs in text format, and the text file has “.txt” extension. If you omit this option, then logs are dumped in binary format.


Specifies the time that serves as the starting point for the log dump. The format to specify start time is YYYYMMDDHHMMSS.


Specifies the time that serves as the stopping point for the log dump. The format to specify end time is YYYYMMDDHHMMSS.

At least the jobid option or a combination of the starttime and endtime options must be specified to properly use this utility. A combination of the options jobid, starttime, and endtime can be specified to dump logs for a particular job that were generated within the given period.

Specifies the start date; it is specified as the number of days before the current date.


Starts the output from midnight preceding the number of days specified with the -b option. You must use this option with the -b option.

For example, at 3 P.M., you specify -b 1, logs starting from 3 P.M. the day before are displayed. With the -m option, log messages starting from the midnight of previous day are displayed.

If you specify -m without the -b option or with -b 0, log messages starting from the midnight of current day are displayed. If you issue this command at 3 P.M., 15 hours of logs are displayed.


Specifies one or more characters that you want to use as delimiters. For example, -d followed by two spaces would separate each displayed item with two spaces.

You can specify multiple strings using comma as a separator.
