This section describes command-line tools available after buildbot installation. Since version 0.8 the one-for-all buildbot command-line tool was divided into two parts namely buildbot and buildslave, starting from version 0.9 buildslave command was replaced with buildbot-worker command. The last one was separated from main command-line tool to minimize dependencies required for running a worker while leaving all other functions to buildbot tool.
Every command-line tool has a list of global options and a set of commands which have their own options. One can run these tools in the following way:
buildbot [global options] command [command options] buildbot-worker [global options] command [command options]
buildbot command is used on the master, while
buildbot-worker is used on the worker. Global options are the same for both tools which perform the following actions:
|--help||Print general help about available commands and global options and exit. All subsequent arguments are ignored.|
|--verbose||Set verbose output.|
|--version||Print current buildbot version and exit. All subsequent arguments are ignored.|
You can get help on any command by specifying
--help as a command option:
buildbot command --help
You can also use manual pages for buildbot and buildbot-worker for quick reference on command-line options.
The remainder of this section describes each buildbot command. See Command Line Index for a full list.
