doveadm-dump


SYNOPSIS
       doveadm [-Dv] dump [-t type] path

DESCRIPTION
       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-
       Files

       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.

OPTIONS
       Global doveadm(1) options:

       -D     Enables verbosity and debug messages.

       -v     Enables verbosity, including progress counter.

       Command specific options:

       -t type
              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

ARGUMENTS
       path   The path to the corresponding index  or  log  file.  If  only  a
              directory  is  specified,  doveadm  tries to find and dump index
              type file under it.

EXAMPLE
       Look at the contents of a mailbox's index:

       doveadm dump ~/Maildir/.work/
