This article provides information to maintain the Storage Manager database. 


All STM versions


Storage Manager comes with a script called dbutil. This script allows users to make backups of their database. Dbutil also runs maintenance routines that keep the database running smoothly. Options for dbutil include the following:

  • Backup - Copy the database to a backup directory
  • Maintenance - Dbutil will run repair, analysis, and optimization procedures against the Storage Manager database

Note: The maintenance option includes running a myisamchk against the database. A myisamchk is a commandline tool for checking, repairing and optimizing non-partitioned MyISAM tables.

For more information about this feature, see dbutil.

The user can also run a myisamchk only. Myisamchk repairs corrupted tables and it can also help shrink the overall size of the database freeing up disk space on the Storage Manager server. The myisamchk is run via command line. Unlike dbutil this feature will not perform a backup of the database, instead it will only perform maintenance against the database tables.

For more information about this feature, see myisamchk.
