SYNOPSIS

labgrid-client --help

labgrid-client -p <place> <command>

labgrid-client places|resources

DESCRIPTION

Labgrid is a scalable infrastructure and test architecture for embedded (linux) systems.

This is the client to control a boards status and interface with it on remote machines.

OPTIONS

-h, --help display command line help
-p PLACE, --place PLACE
 specify the place to operate on
-x, --crossbar-url
 the crossbar url of the coordinator
-c CONFIG, --config CONFIG
 set the configuration file
-s STATE, --state STATE
 set an initial state before executing a command, requires a configuration file and strategy
-d, --debug enable debugging
-v, --verbose increase verbosity
-P PROXY, --proxy PROXY
 proxy connections over ssh

CONFIGURATION FILE

The configuration file follows the description in labgrid-device-config(1).

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

Various labgrid-client commands use the following environment variable:

LG_PLACE

This variable can be used to specify a place without using the -p option, the -p option overrides it.

LG_STATE

This variable can be used to specify a state which the device transitions into before executing a command. Requires a configuration file and a Strategy specified for the device.

LG_ENV

This variable can be used to specify the configuration file to use without using the --config option, the --config option overrides it.

LG_CROSSBAR

This variable can be used to set the default crossbar URL (instead of using the -x option).

LG_CROSSBAR_REALM

This variable can be used to set the default crossbar realm to use instead of realm1.

LG_PROXY

This variable can be used to specify a SSH proxy hostname which should be used to connect to the coordinator and any resources which are normally accessed directly.

MATCHES

Match patterns are used to assign a resource to a specific place. The format is: exporter/group/cls/name, exporter is the name of the exporting machine, group is a name defined within the exporter, cls is the class of the exported resource and name is its name. Wild cards in match patterns are explicitly allowed, * matches anything.

LABGRID-CLIENT COMMANDS

monitor Monitor events from the coordinator

resources (r) List available resources

places (p) List available places

who List acquired places by user

show Show a place and related resources

create Add a new place (name supplied by -p parameter)

delete Delete an existing place

add-alias alias Add an alias to a place

del-alias alias Delete an alias from a place

set-comment comment Update or set the place comment

add-match match Add one (or multiple) match pattern(s) to a place, see MATCHES

del-match match Delete one (or multiple) match pattern(s) from a place, see MATCHES

add-named-match match name Add one match pattern with a name to a place

acquire (lock) Acquire a place

allow user Allow another user to access a place

release (unlock) Release a place

env Generate a labgrid environment file for a place

power (pw) action Change (or get) a place’s power status, where action is one of get, on, off, status

io action Interact with GPIO (OneWire, relays, …) devices, where action is one of high, low, get

console (con) Connect to the console

fastboot arg Run fastboot with argument

bootstrap filename Start a bootloader

sd-mux action Switch USB SD Muxer, where action is one of dut (device-under-test), host, off

ssh Connect via SSH

telnet Connect via telnet

video Start a video stream

tmc command Control a USB TMC device

write-image Write images onto block devices (USBSDMux, USB Sticks, …)

EXAMPLES

To retrieve a list of places run:

$ labgrid-client places

To access a place, it needs to be acquired first, this can be done by running the acquire command and passing the placename as a -p parameter:

$ labgrid-client -p <placename> acquire

Open a console to the acquired place:

$ labgrid-client -p <placename> console

Add all resources with the group “example-group” to the place example-place:

$ labgrid-client -p example-place add-match */example-group/*/*
