InterSystems: The power behind what matters   

Manage InterSystems IRIS database files programmatically (disable and enable journaling, copy, configure, and so on).
Background Information
InterSystems IRIS stores data and code in database files. For an introduction, see “Namespaces and Databases” in the Orientation Guide for Server-Side Programming.
Typically you create and configure databases via the Management Portal. See “Configuring Databases” in the chapter “Configuring InterSystems IRIS” in the System Administration Guide.
Available Tools
SYS.Database class

Methods in this class enable you to work with database files. These methods include:
This class also provides queries that provide information about databases. These queries include:
Availability: %SYS namespace.

The class also provides the List() and MirrorDatabaseList() class queries.
The class documentation includes examples and details.
