fossjobs(1) Display default fossology agents or upload id's and schedule default


fossjobs [-a] [-h] [-u] [-v] [-A <string>] [-U <upload-id>] [-P priority]


fossjobs is a command line fossology utility that can be used to list the available default agents or upload id's. Using that information, fossjobs can be used to schedule all the default agents or a subset of them for a given upload id. This effectivly creates a job and schedules the agents to perform their analysis on the upload id given.

Additionally, the priority can be set for that upload id/job. The agents will run at the priority set, or 0 if none supplied (the default).

Verbose output
-A <string>
This option can be used to run a subset of the default agents. The subset is specified using a comma separated list of agents. To display the available agents, use -a. To schedule all default agents, do not set this option.
-P <priority>
The priority for the job/agents. The default priority if none is supplied is zero (0). Priorities can be negative or positive. A negative priority will have less priority than zero. Additionally, larger negative numbers will have less priority than smaller negative numbers. The highest priority is 10.
-U <upload-id>
The upload id to schedule the agents to work on. To find an upload id use -u. The upload-id string can be a comma-separated list of upload ids. Or, use 'ALL' to specify all upload ids.
