dsetool list_index_files

Lists all index files for a search index on the local node. The results show file name, encryption, disk usage, decrypted size, and encryption overhead. The index file is encrypted only when the backing CQL table is encrypted and the search index uses EncryptedFSDirectoryFactory; otherwise, the index file is decrypted.

Restriction: Command is supported only on nodes with DSE Search workloads.


dsetool list_index_files <keyspace_name> <table_name> [--index <directory>]
Syntax conventions Description


Literal keyword.


Not literal.


Variable value. Replace with a valid option or user-defined value.

[ ]

Optional. Square brackets ( [ ] ) surround optional command arguments. Do not type the square brackets.

( )

Group. Parentheses ( ( ) ) identify a group to choose from. Do not type the parentheses.


Or. A vertical bar ( | ) separates alternative elements. Type any one of the elements. Do not type the vertical bar.


Repeatable. An ellipsis ( ... ) indicates that you can repeat the syntax element as often as required.

'<Literal string>'

Single quotation ( ' ) marks must surround literal strings in CQL statements. Use single quotation marks to preserve upper case.

{ <key>:<value> }

Map collection. Braces ( { } ) enclose map collections or key value pairs. A colon separates the key and the value.


Set, list, map, or tuple. Angle brackets ( < > ) enclose data types in a set, list, map, or tuple. Separate the data types with a comma.


End CQL statement. A semicolon ( ; ) terminates all CQL statements.

[ -- ]

Separate the command line options from the command arguments with two hyphens ( -- ). This syntax is useful when arguments might be mistaken for command line options.

' <<schema> ... </schema> >'

Search CQL only: Single quotation marks ( ' ) surround an entire XML schema declaration.


Search CQL only: Identify the entity and literal value to overwrite the XML element in the schema and solrconfig files.


Required. The keyspace and table names of the search index. Keyspace and table names are case-sensitive. Enclose names that contain uppercase in double quotation marks.


The data directory that contains the index files.

  • If not specified, the default directory is inferred from the search index name.

  • <directory> - A specified file path to the solr.data directory that contains the search index files.


To list the index files:

dsetool list_index_files

The results show file name, encryption, disk usage, decrypted size, and encryption overhead:

Filename                    Encryption       Disk usage          Decrypted size      Encryption overhead
--------                    ----------       ----------          ----------          --------------
segments_1                  N/A              7124 bytes          N/A                 N/A
write.lock                  N/A              3240 bytes          N/A                 N/A

To list the index files in a specified directory:

dsetool list_index_files /My_data_dir
