Read notification.idx file

Hello Team,

I would like to know the command to read the notification.idx file in a human readable format.

Best regards.

How was this file generated? I am not familiar with it neither.


Under /var/log/confd_notifications/ these are the files I see.

ls -lrt

We have an issue with the notifications which we would want to debug. This is configured under


in the confd.conf file.

This file as you already noticed is binary and can’t be read by humans.
If the reason you want to read it is debugging I recommend enabling the NETCONF trace logs which will give you plenty of information.
