Fixed In:

Opened: Jun 18, 2015
Severity: 3-Major


sessiondump switched to double dash options like `sessiondump --list` and was no longer backward compatible with single dash options like `sessiondump -list`


Minimal impact. Only applies to customers that request and receive an engineering hotfix that includes BZ 511900 to get a faster sessiondump. Functionality is the same, but utility scripts that were using the old commands will need to be updated to the new ones


This bug is only applicable if BZ 511900 is being integrated to an engineering hotfix for an 11.x version. BZ 511900 was included in 12.0 and improved sessiondump performance but broke backward compatibility. However, the regression was identified during the 12.0 development, and was fixed before 12.0 released.


Use the double dash option. The option names have not changed, and the functionality of sessiondump has not changed.

Fix Information

It now accepts both double and single dash options.
