A.    The lspacket command lists a summary of the contents of one or more files that contain replica-creation or update packets. By default, the lspacket output includes this information:

Pathname of each packet

Type of each packet (Replica Creation or Update)

VOB family to which the packet applies

Creation comment for the packet

Replicas for which the packet is intended; if the VOB tag is available, lspacket displays it.

An asterisk after a replica name indicates that the packet can be imported immediately because it does not depend on any other packet. (This applies only for replicas listed in the host's ClearCase® registry.) For example, if there are two packets waiting to be imported at a replica, the first packet has an asterisk and the second doesn't, because the second packet depends on the first. Packet sequence number (for one part of a logical packet with multiple physical packets)

 

B. -long inaddition to the default informatoin, lists the following information:Name or OID of the replica where the packet was created

Oplog IDs that indicate the contents of the packet

Recovery incarnation of the sending replica (an internal value used by MultiSite)

Major and minor packet versions (internal values used by MultiSite)

C.  The lspacket command has an undocumented switch -dump which displays detailed information about the packet (Syncreplica or Replica Creation) It is designed to assist IBM Rational support with diagnostic troubleshooting information, however, often identifies problems in sync packets that cannot be synchronised with a VOB. Note: You need to use -dump with -invob <VOB Tag> if you are not operating in a ClearCase View context and inside a mounted VOB.

 

D.    One or more pathnames of files and/or directories.

 

E.    Lists the packets on the specified host.
