doveadm [-Dv] dump [-t type] path
Dovecot uses several binary index and log files in order to improve
performance for accessing mails. For some mailbox formats, such as
sdbox and mdbox, the index files are part of the format itself. For
details about index files, see also: http://wiki2.dovecot.org/Index-
doveadm dump is used to show the contents of those mailbox index/log
files, in human readable format. This is mainly useful for Dovecot
developers when debugging some problem.
Global doveadm(1) options:
-D Enables verbosity and debug messages.
-v Enables verbosity, including progress counter.
Command specific options:
the file type of the file to be dumped. If the type was omit-
ted, doveadm(1) tries to detect the type of path. type can be:
index => dovecot.index, dovecot.map.index
log => dovecot.index.log, dovecot.map.index.log
mailboxlog => dovecot.mailbox.log
thread => dovecot.index.thread
path The path to the corresponding index or log file. If only a
directory is specified, doveadm tries to find and dump index
