Checking TaskForest Status
To get the status of all currently running and recently run jobs, enter the following command:
status OR status --log_dir=/foo/logs --family_dir=/foo/families OR status --log_dir=/foo/logs --family_dir=/foo/families \ --collapse
If the --collapse option is used then pending repeat jobs will not be displayed.
The ``status'' command also accepts a ``--date'' option, in which case it displays all the jobs that ran for that date. The date must be in the ``YYYYMMDD'' format:
If the date specified is not the same as the current date, the ``--collapse'' option doesn't make any sense, because there can't be any pending jobs for a date in the past.
When displaying the status for days in the past, there is no way for the system to know what time zone the jobs were scheduled for. This is because the corresponding family file could have changed between the time that the job ran and the time that you're running the status command. To resolve this, the system will always display jobs in the time zone specified by the 'default_time_zone' option. If the default time zone is not specified, its default value is ``America/Chicago''.
To check the status for the current day's jobs, direct your browser to
/status.html. To check the status for earlier days, use the "View Logs" form that's available on every page of the web site.
