indextool - Sphinxsearch tool dump miscellaneous debug information about the physical


indextool {command} [options]


Sphinx is a collection of programs that aim to provide high quality fulltext search.

indextool is one of the helper tools within the Sphinx package. It is used to dump
miscellaneous debug information about the physical index. Apart ghe dumping indextool can
perform index verification, hence the indextool name rather than just indexdump.


The commands are as follows:

--dumpheader FILENAME.sph
quickly dumps the provided index header file without touching any other index files or
even the configuration file. The report provides a breakdown of all the index
settings, in particular the entire attribute and field list. Prior to 0.9.9-rc2, this
command was present in CLI search utility.

--dumpconfig FILENAME.sph
dumps the index definition from the given index header file in (almost) compliant
sphinx.conf file format.

--dumpheader INDEXNAME
dumps index header by index name with looking up the header path in the configuration

--dumpdocids INDEXNAME
dumps document IDs by index name. It takes the data from attribute (.spa) file and
therefore requires docinfo=extern to work.

dumps all the hits (occurences) of a given keyword in a given index, with keyword
specified as text.

--dumphitlist INDEXNAME --wordid ID
dumps all the hits (occurences) of a given keyword in a given index, with keyword
specified as internal numeric ID.

--htmlstrip INDEXNAME
filters stdin using HTML stripper settings for a given index, and prints the filtering
results to stdout. Note that the settings will be taken from sphinx.conf, and not the
index header.

checks the index data files for consistency errors that might be introduced either by
bugs in indexer and/or hardware faults.

strips the path names from all the file names referenced from the index (stopwords,
wordforms, exceptions, etc). This is useful for checking indexes built on another
machine with possibly different path layouts.

optimizes the kill list memory use in the disk chunk of a given RT index. That is a
one-off optimization intended for rather old RT indexes, created by development
versions prior to 1.10-beta release. As of 1.10-beta releases, this kill list
optimization (purging) should happen automatically, and there should never be a need
to use this option.


The only currently available option applies to all commands and lets you specify the
configuration file:

overrides the built-in config file names.
