diag_histlist

Use

You display the available log files.

If you execute the DBM command without specifying a time stamp, the system displays a list of all available log files, the directory in which they are stored, and the time stamp for each.

If you specify a time stamp in addition to the DBM command, the system displays the file IDs of the log files. You can display the contents of a file by using the file ID (see: file_getfirst).

You can, however, also use the information about the directory to access log files using the operating system. The path for the directory that contains the log files is defined by the value of the special database parameter DIAG_HISTORY_PATH.
