fs_listcells - Displays the database server machines known to the Cache Manager
The fs listcells
command formats and displays the list of the database
server machines that the Cache Manager stores in kernel memory for its home
cell and foreign cells.
At each reboot of the client machine, the Cache Manager copies the contents of
into kernel memory. To modify the list between
reboots, use the fs newcell
- Displays each database server machine's IP address rather
- Prints the online help for this command. All other valid
options are ignored.
The output includes a line for each cell included in the Cache Manager's kernel
memory list, in the following format:
Cell <cell> on hosts <database server machines>
The Cache Manager stores IP addresses, but by default has them translated to
hostnames before reporting them, by passing them to the cell's name service
(such as the Domain Name Service or a local host table). The name service
sometimes returns hostnames in uppercase letters, or an IP address if it
cannot resolve a name.
Using the -numeric
flag bypasses the translation to hostnames, which can
result in significantly faster production of output. The output includes IP
The following example shows output for several cells as illustrations of the
different formats for machine names:
% fs listcells
Cell abc.com on hosts fs1.abc.com fs2.abc.com fs3.abc.com
Cell stateu.edu on hosts DB1.FS.STATEU.EDU
Cell def.gov on hosts 126.96.36.199 sv3.def.gov
