mc stat command displays information on objects in a MinIO bucket,
including object metadata.
You can also use
mc stat against the local filesystem to produce similar
results to the
stat commandline tool.
The following command displays information on all objects in the
mydata bucket on the
myminio MinIO deployment:
mc stat --recursive myminio/mydata
The command has the following syntax:
mc [GLOBALFLAGS] stat \ [--encrypt-key "value"] \ [--recursive] \ [--rewind "string"] \ [--versions] \ [--version-id "string"]* \ ALIAS [ALIAS ...]
 indicate optional parameters.
Parameters sharing a line are mutually dependent.
Parameters seperated using the pipe
| operator are mutually exclusive.
Copy the example to a text editor and modify as-needed before running the command in the terminal/shell.
mc stat --version-id is mutually exclusive with multiple
parameters. See the reference documentation for more information.
The alias of a MinIO deployment and the full path to the object for which to retrieve detailed information. For example:
mc stat myminio/mybucket/myobject.txt
You can specify multiple objects on the same or different MinIO deployments:
mc stat play/mybucket/myobject.txt myminio/mybucket/myobject.txt
If specifying the path to a bucket or bucket prefixy, you must
mc stat --recursive flag:
mc stat --recursive myminio/mybucket/
For retrieving information on a file from a local filesystem, specify the full path to that file:
mc stat ~/data/myobject.txt
Optional Encrypt or decrypt objects using server-side encryption with
client-specified keys. Specify key-value pairs as
KEY represents a bucket or object.
VALUErepresents the data key to use for encrypting
Enclose the entire list of key-value pairs passed to
--encrypt-key in double quotes
--encrypt-key can use the
environment variable for retrieving a list of encryption key-value pairs
as an alternative to specifying them on the command line.
mc stat to operate only on the object version(s) that
existed at specified point-in-time.
To rewind to a specific date in the past, specify the date as an
ISO8601-formatted timestamp. For example:
To rewind a duration in time, specify the duration as a string in
#d#hh#mm#ss format. For example:
mc stat to operate on all object versions that exist in the
mc stat to operate only on the specified object version.
Mutually exclusive with any of the following flags:
mc stat ALIAS/PATH
The mc commandline tool is built for compatibility with the AWS S3 API and is tested MinIO and AWS S3 for expected functionality and behavior.
MinIO provides no guarantees for other S3-compatible services, as their S3 API implementation is unknown and therefore unsupported. While mc commands may work as documented, any such usage is at your own risk.
