Purpose

The Master Index is the highest level of the file system structure and contains a sorted list of all the Cylinder Index Descriptors (CIDs), which represent the cylinders in use. The CID command displays the CID associated with the requested cylinder.

Syntax



cylid
The 64-bit identifier of a cylinder, entered as a 16-character hexadecimal number.
=
Filer will use the most recently saved value for cylid.
This option cannot be used unless an input value has already been defined for cylid. For more information, see Stored Input Values.

Usage Notes

The checksum and the checksum algorithm columns (checksum and ag) appear in both the CID and the CI displays if there are associated checksums, providing both internal and external checksums. The checksum sample count column (ct) appears only in the output of the CI command, and is used for either an internal or an external check.

The prompt for this selector follows:

MI:CID ==>

In addition to global and upper-level commands, the following lower-level commands are allowed at the MI:CID prompt:

  • DISPLAY
  • DELETE
  • NEXT
  • PATCH
  • PREV
  • WRITE
