Job Autostart


To automatically import and enable a job, use the following parameters:

Name Description
-job-enable Enable specified job by name. Accepts job names separated by commas.
-job-path Import a job from a specified file or HTTP or HTTPS content. Supports comma-separated files. If the job-enable parameter is not defined, ALL jobs in the file start.
-job-execute Run specified jobs by name after startup. Multiple job names can be specified, separated by comma.

Note that imported jobs are enabled but only run according to the schedule. To run a job manually, add the -job-execute parameter.

Enable Pre-Configured Job

To enable one of the pre-configured jobs, set the -job-enable parameter:

./axibase-collector/bin/ -job-enable=job_name

For example, to enable a job named json-socrata:

./axibase-collector/bin/ -job-enable=json-socrata

Load Job from File

To load and enable a job from a file, use the -job-path and -job-enable parameters:

./axibase-collector/bin/ -job-path=path_to_file -job-enable=job_name

For example, to enable the job my-jmx-job loaded from the file /tmp/job.xml:

./axibase-collector/bin/ -job-path=/tmp/job.xml -job-enable=my-jmx-job

To load jobs from a remote file, specify the full path:

./axibase-collector/bin/ -job-path=

Enable Multiple Jobs

./axibase-collector/bin/ -job-path=/tmp/jobs.xml -job-enable=json-job,tcp-job

Run Job Immediately

To execute a job immediately, use the -job-execute parameter:

./axibase-collector/bin/ -job-execute=job_name

For example, for a job named my-jmx-job:

./axibase-collector/bin/ -job-path=/tmp/job.xml -job-enable=my-jmx-job -job-execute=json-my-jmx-job
