Grafana Mimir listblocks

The listblocks tool lists blocks and show the block details of a tenant. Listblocks requires at least configuration to access the bucket and tenant.

Listblocks doesn’t use the bucket index; instead, it downloads the meta.json file of every block in the tenant. This means that listblocks has an up-to-date view of the blocks in the bucket.
