ndb_print_backup_file − print NDB backup file contents
ndb_print_backup_file obtains diagnostic information from a cluster backup file.
Table 23.39. Command−line
options used with the program ndb_print_backup_file
ndb_print_backup_file [−P password] file_name
file_name is the name of a cluster backup file. This can be any of the files (.Data, .ctl, or .log file) found in a cluster backup directory. These files are found in the data node's backup directory under the subdirectory BACKUP−#, where # is the sequence number for the backup. For more information about cluster backup files and their contents, see Section 126.96.36.199, “NDB Cluster Backup Concepts”.
Like ndb_print_schema_file and ndb_print_sys_file (and unlike most of the other NDB utilities that are intended to be run on a management server host or to connect to a management server) ndb_print_backup_file must be run on a cluster data node, since it accesses the data node file system directly. Because it does not make use of the management server, this utility can be used when the management server is not running, and even when the cluster has been completely shut down.
In NDB 8.0, this program can also be used to read undo log files. Options
Prior to NDB 8.0.24, ndb_print_backup_file supported only the −P option. Beginning with NDB 8.0.24, the program supports a number of options, which are described in the following list.
Specify the password needed to decrypt an encrypted backup.
The long form of this option is available beginning with NDB 8.0.24.
Allow input of the password from standard input, similar to entering a password after invoking mysql −−password with no password supplied.
Control file directory number. Used together with −−print−restored−rows.
Read given file after global files are read.
Read default options from given file only.
Also read groups with concat(group, suffix).
Fragment ID. Used together with −−print−restored−rows.

• c is the control file number set using −−control−directory−number
• t is the table ID set using −−table−id
• f is the fragment ID set using −−fragment−id
