NAME

       logdump - dump a JFS formatted device's journal log



SYNOPSIS

       logdump [ -a ] device



DESCRIPTION

       logdump  dumps  the  contents of the journal log from the specified JFS
       formatted device into output file ./jfslog.dmp.

       device is the special file name corresponding to the actual device from
       which the journal log will be dumped (e.g.  /dev/hdb1 ).

       logdump must be run as root.

EXAMPLE

       Dump the entire JFS journal log from the 3rd partition of the 2nd  hard
       disk into ./jfslog.dmp:

              logdump -a /dev/hdb3
