nodetool sequence

Run multiple nodetool commands from a file, resource, or standard input (StdIn) sequentially.

Sequentially run multiple nodetool commands from a file, resource, or standard input (StdIn) to reduce overhead. Faster than running nodetool commands individually from a shell script because the JVM doesn't have to restart for each command.

Synopsis

nodetool [connection_options] sequence
[--failonerror] [-i input [input ...]] [--stoponerror] [--] 
[command_name [command_name : ...]]
Table 1. Legend
Syntax conventions Description
UPPERCASE Literal keyword.
Lowercase Not literal.
Italics Variable value. Replace with a valid option or user-defined value.
[ ] Optional. Square brackets ( [ ] ) surround optional command arguments. Do not type the square brackets.
( ) Group. Parentheses ( ( ) ) identify a group to choose from. Do not type the parentheses.
| Or. A vertical bar ( | ) separates alternative elements. Type any one of the elements. Do not type the vertical bar.
... Repeatable. An ellipsis ( ... ) indicates that you can repeat the syntax element as often as required.
'Literal string' Single quotation ( ' ) marks must surround literal strings in CQL statements. Use single quotation marks to preserve upper case.
{ key:value } Map collection. Braces ( { } ) enclose map collections or key value pairs. A colon separates the key and the value.
<datatype1,datatype2> Set, list, map, or tuple. Angle brackets ( < > ) enclose data types in a set, list, map, or tuple. Separate the data types with a comma.
cql_statement;End CQL statement. A semicolon ( ; ) terminates all CQL statements.
[ -- ] Separate the command line options from the command arguments with two hyphens ( -- ). This syntax is useful when arguments might be mistaken for command line options.
' <schema> ... </schema> ' Search CQL only: Single quotation marks ( ' ) surround an entire XML schema declaration.
@xml_entity='xml_entity_type' Search CQL only: Identify the entity and literal value to overwrite the XML element in the schema and solrconfig files.

Definition

The short form and long form parameters are comma-separated.

Connection options

-h, --host hostname
The hostname or IP address of a remote node or nodes. When omitted, the default is the local machine.
-p, --port jmx_port
The JMX port number.
-pw, --password jmxpassword
The JMX password for authenticating with secure JMX. If a password is not provided, you are prompted to enter one.
-pwf, --password-file jmx_password_filepath
The filepath to the file that stores JMX authentication credentials.
-u, --username jmx_username
The user name for authenticating with secure JMX.

Command arguments

--
Separates an option from an argument that could be mistaken for a option.
command_name
Commands to execute. Separate individual commands using a colon surrounded by whitespaces ( : ).
--failonerror
Set this option to true to return an error exit code if a child command fails. By default, an error exit code is not returned if one or more child commands fail.
-i, --input input
The input to run the command.
--stoponerror
Set to true to stop command on error. Default is if one child command fails, the sequence command continues with remaining commands.

Examples

To run commands in a file

First, create a text file with one command per line.

nodetool sequence -i /my/file/commands

To run commands on the command line

nodetool sequence info : gettimeout read : gettimeout write : status

Each command in the file runs sequentially.
