bplist column headders for NDMP

Does someone have the column heading for the bplist command for "t 19" NDMP

Here is the sample output

command (taken form the java-gui command shell):

bplist -S <media_server> -C <client>  -Listpolicy -l -b -P -W -R 1 -t 19 -E -unix_files -X -s 1401609601 -e 14016096 -keyword '' '/root/path_to_dir/'

Output (first two lines only):

8192 0 0 0 8192 2 0 0 -3 16877 root root 8192 1401609601 1315921194 1401454262 1401454262 0 10 dsu001-1-1 25 /root/path_to_dir/ 3 0

4096 0 0 0 4096 3 0 0 -3 16877 root root 4096 1401609601 1368031919 1400427691 1400427691 0 10 dsu001-1-1 38 /vol/path_to_dir/path_to_dir_2/ 3 0

Unfortunately, there is no official technote/guide of what each column means, always have to take a guess here.

Hello,   Its the "Policy

Hello,

 

Its the "Policy Type" bplist is using to look for the results-

 

-t policy_type
Specifies one of the following numbers that correspond to the policy type. The default is 0 for all clients except Windows, where the default is 13.

0 = Standard
4 = Oracle
6 = Informix-On-BAR
7 = Sybase
8 = MS-SharePoint
10 = NetWare
11 = DataTools-SQL-BackTrack 13 = MS-Windows
14 = OS/2
15 = MS-SQL-Server
16 = MS-Exchange-Server
17 = SAP
18 = DB2
19 = NDMP
20 = FlashBackup

Thanks for the link, somehow

Thanks for the link, somehow I missed it in my search.  I have what I require now I think. I copied information from bpflist to fill in the description of some of the fields. Hopefully this is a net add to the discussion.

 It would be nice to have a better definition of 1-4, 13, 23 and 24.  Notice my comments about 1, does this make since?

Field Field Header Example   Description
1 File size (bytes) 4329415 Have noticed that the value is 8192 if there are more directories underneath and 4096 if there are no more directories underneath.  For file data 1, 2, 3 and 4 go together in pairs somehow
2 File size 0  
3 File size 0  
4 File size 0  
5 File size (bytes) 4329415 1, 5 and 13 seem to have something to do with File size
6 encoded major/minor dev number 633  
7 encoded major/minor dev number 0  
8 encoded major/minor dev number 0  (-2147480663 above is an NFS mount)
9 this file is in the image? -3 I do not understand this one
10 Mode bits in decimal  33188 File/directory mode bits in DECIMAL.  To see the file/directory permission bits more clearly, convert the value into OCTAL or BINARY format.
For example, if the value is 33188 decimal, this is actually 100644 in octal, which indicates that it is a regular file (0100000) with permissions rw-r--r-- (0644).
11 User root  
12 Group root  
13 Compressed file size in bytes? 4329415  
14 Backup timestamp 1401609601  
15 Last access timestamp 1379870703  
16 Last inode mod timestamp 1399654968  
17 Last file mod timestamp 1399654968  
18 Schedule Type 0 The type of schedule: 0 = Full, 1 = Differential Incremental, 2 = User Backup, 3 = User Archive, 4 = Cumulative Incremental.
19 Length of Policy 10  
20 Policy <Policy_Name>  
21 length of file/path name  51  
22 File Name <Fully_Pathed_File_Name>  
23 ? 3  
24 ? 0

I'm willing to take another

I'm willing to take another whack at this, but can you tell us what you're trying to accomplish here, what specifically you need to know and for why?

Hi I believe I have what I

Hi I believe I have what I require. Directory or file, answered by field #1, size answered by field #5, file name by field #22, time stamps by fields 14-17.  I do a lot of searching utilizing bpflist in Perl and ksh for legal reasons and I find it a bit difficult get simple lists when mixing windows, NDMP, UNIX and other backups into the mix.  I would like to see if I can do simple searches easier with bplist, and go to bpflist for more specific lists.

It would just be nice to know what the missing or questionable fields are also I thought that the spread sheet like representation was a bit easier to read.  I have not further request on this command at this time and I appreciate your time and follow up.
