Transaction Log Dump

A transaction log dump is not something a Server Administrator typically needs to use, but we explain it here to be complete. Developers most often use this functionality as an aid to design, code, and debug an application being developed for use with a FairCom Server.

ctldmp is a utility providing a partial dump of transaction log files. This utility will attempt to create an ASCII log from the records in the transaction log and display it on the screen. It converts only the first 39 bytes of each record in the transaction log.

The ctfdmp, ctldmp, and ctrdmp utilities display the FairCom DB version used to compile them when they are run.
