.
  The dbdumpcat utility may be used to display database or system catalog tables.

Usage

usage: dbdumpcat [options] [database]

options:
 -u name    - user name (default "public")
 -p pswd    - password
 -h host    - host name or address (and service)
 -s service - service name or port number
 -d flags   - debug flags
 -t catid   - dump only specified catalog table
 -l         - list catalog tables
 -n         - suppress header and formatting
The options are:
-help
The -help option displays a brief help text.

-u user
The -u option specifies the database user (or a file holding the database user and/or password). Defaults to the public user unless a default user is specified with the EQ_DBUSER environment variable.

-p password
The -p option may be used to specify the password for the database user (or a file holding the password). If not specified, the password is obtained using the EQ_DBUSER and/or EQ_DBPASSWORD environment variables.

-h host[:service]
The -h option may be used to specify the database server host name (or IP address) and service name (or TCP port number). Defaults to localhost:eloqdb unless a default instance is specified with the EQ_DBSERVER environment variable.

-s service
The -s option may be used to specify the service name or TCP port number of the database server. Defaults to eloqdb unless a default instance is specified with the EQ_DBSERVER environment variable.

-t catid
The -t option allows to dump a selected catalog table (instead of all).

-l
The -l option displays a list of available catalog tables.

-n
The -n option suppresses header and formatting in output.

-d flags
The -d option specifies debug flags and is normally not used.

Notes

  • If no database is specified, the system catalog tables are dumped.

  • If a database is specified, the database specific catalog tables are shown.

  • Some catalog information is only available to dba users (e.g. password hashes).

  • The -n option may be used to display content that exceeds column width.

  • With -n option dates display as "seconds since epoch" instead of YYYY-MM-DD.

Examples

The following example lists the available system catalog tables and dumps information about database users as well as databases by specifying catalog tables #30 and #31:
dbdumpcat -l
