Beezcli Tool

Speedb Interactive tool

Introduction

The beezcli command line tool offers multiple data access and database admin commands. beezcli supports interactive mode with history and it will remember the --db and --secondary_path once the interactive mode is being enabled.
beezcli is wrapping RocksDB's and LevelDB's ldb tool.
Some examples are listed below. For more information, please consult the help message displayed when running beezcli without any arguments or with --help.

How to use it?

The beezcli tool is available under the tools directory in Speedb repository.
By default, `beezcli` can only be used against a DB that is offline. Operating the DB, even for read-only operations, might make changes to the DB directory, e.g. info logs.

Open as secondary

An option `--secondary_path=<secondary_path>` would open the DB as a [[Secondary instance]], which can be used to open a running DB and/or to minimize impacts to the DB directory. This argument can be used for any beezcli command, but since not all operations can be done against secondary instances, some operations will fail. Besides write operations which would definitely fail with secondary instances, some read operations might also fail.

How to compile

For mac os and Linux:

Notice: Currently the tool is not supported on Windows

Example for interactive mode

Example data access:
$./beezcli --interactive --db=/tmp/test_db
/tmp/test_db
beezcli> put a1 b1 --create_if_missing
OK
beezcli> get a1
b1
beezcli> delete a1
OK
beezcli> get a1
Failed: Get failed: NotFound:
beezcli> quit
Ciao
Example dump database:
$./beezcli --interactive --db=/tmp/test_db
/tmp/test_db
beezcli> put a1 b1 --create_if_missing
OK
beezcli> dump
a1 ==> b1
Keys in range: 1
beezcli> dump --no_value
a1
Keys in range: 1
beezcli> dump --count_only
beezcli> idump
'a1' seq:0, type:1 => b1
Internal keys in range: 1
beezcli> delete a1
OK
beezcli> idump
'a1' seq:4, type:0 =>
'a1' seq:0, type:1 => b1
Internal keys in range: 2
Example data access sequence:
$./beezcli --db=/tmp/test_db --create_if_missing put a1 b1
OK
$ ./beezcli --db=/tmp/test_db get a1
b1
$ ./beezcli --db=/tmp/test_db get a2
Failed: NotFound:
$ ./beezcli --db=/tmp/test_db scan

$ ./beezcli --db=/tmp/test_db put --key_hex 0x6132 b2

$ ./beezcli --db=/tmp/test_db scan

$ ./beezcli --db=/tmp/test_db get --value_hex a2

$ ./beezcli --db=/tmp/test_db batchput a3 b3 a4 b4

$ ./beezcli --db=/tmp/test_db scan

To dump an existing speedb database in HEX:
$ ./beezcli --db=/tmp/test_db dump --hex > /tmp/dbdump
To load the dumped HEX format data to a new Speedb database:
$ cat /tmp/dbdump | ./beezcli --db=/tmp/test_db_new load --hex --compression_type=bzip2 --block_size=65536 --create_if_missing --disable_wal
To compact an existing Speedb database:
$ ./beezcli --db=/tmp/test_db_new compact --compression_type=bzip2 --block_size=65536
You can specify the command line `--column_family=<string>` for which column family your query will be against.
`--try_load_options` will try to load the options file in the DB to open the DB. It is a good idea to always try to have this option on when you operate the DB. If you open the DB with default options, it may mess up LSM-tree structure which can't be recovered automatically.
