Permissions Required

To run this command, your user ID must have the following permissions:

Note: The mapr user is not treated as a superuser. MapR-DB does not allow the mapr user to run this command unless that user is given the relevant permission or permissions with access-control expressions.


maprcli table region list
  -path <path>
  [ -start <offset from starting region> ]
  [ -limit <number of regions to return> ]
  [ -index <index name> ]
  [ -output terse | verbose ]
curl -k -X GET \
  -u <username>:<password>





Path to the table.

  • For a path on the local cluster, start the path at the volume mount point. For example, if you want to list regions for a table named test under volume1 which has a mount point at /volume1, specify the following path: /volume1/test
  • For a path on a remote cluster, you must also specify the cluster name in the path. For example, if you want to list regions for a table named test under volume1 in the sanfrancisco cluster, specify the following path:/mapr/sanfrancisco/volume1/customer


The offset from the starting region. The default value is 0.


The number of regions to return, counting from the starting region. The default value is 2147483647.

index The name of the index for which to list region information.
output Specifies whether the output should be terse or verbose.

Default: verbose

Output Fields

Verbose Field Name Terse Field Name Field Value
primarymfs pn Host name and port of the primary node for this region
secondarymfs sn Host names and ports of the secondary nodes where this region is replicated
startkey sk Value of the start key for this region

For the first region in a table, this value is exclusive. For all other regions, it is inclusive. See the example output.

endkey ek Value of the end key for this region

This value is always exclusive. See the example output.

lastheartbeat lhb Time since last heartbeat from the region's primary node
fid fid The region's FID.
logicalsize ls The logical size (in bytes) of the region without data compression (excluding replication).
physicalsize ps The physical size (in bytes) of the region with data compression (excluding replication).
copypendingsize cps Amount of data remaining to be replicated
numberofrows nr Number of rows in the region
numberofrowswithdelete nrd Number of rows in the region, counting deleted rows
numberofspills nsp Number of spills for the region
numberofsegments nsg Number of segments in the region


Lists the Region Information for a Table

This example lists the region information for the table newtable.

maprcli table region list -path / 
curl -k -X GET \
  '' \
  -u mapr:mapr

Example Output Using the -json Option

This example shows two table regions. The value of endkey for the first region is the value of startkey for the second region. The value of endkey is always exclusive. So, for the first region, endkey shows that the first region was split with the addition of the record with the key 5190414F2E44DB732547630A9A81452539749000; for the second region, startkey shows that the region begins with that record.
