The rfutil scan verbose output provides information on the transaction notes recorded in the binary AI file. For further information on how to obtain this output refer to Article  How to view the contents of the after image files?   

The codes recorded for each transaction-id indicate the type of ai note that has been written. 

AISCAN Naming Conventions

Trid can be used to track this transaction's activity and duration across ai files. The Transaction id is reused after a "RL_TEND"

  • RL_TEND = Logical and Physical transaction end  
  • RL_TBGN = Logical and Physical transaction begin

CX* and IX* are index operations

  • RL_IXDEL = Logical index entry deletion   
  • RL_CXREM = Remove index entry  
  • RL_CXREM = remove index entry  
  • RL_CXINS = Insert index entry  

RM* are data records, these can be used to determine the table.

  • RL_RMDEL = Delete a record (fragment)   
  • RL_RMCR = Create a record (fragment)   
  • RL_RMCHG = Change (update) a record (fragment) 

    BK* are block management

    • RL_BKREPL = Generic string replace   
    • RL_BKFRM = Master block changes for moving blocks from one chain to another   
    • RL_BKFRB = Database block changes for moving blocks from one chain to another (frrem)  
    • RL_BKFAM = Master block changes for adding to the free chain   
    • RL_BKFAB = Database block changes for adding to the free chain (fradd)
