    Table of Contents

    When you install TIBCO ActiveSpaces®, which is the default cache provider and a pre-requisite for TIBCO BusinessEvents clusters, you will get an as-admin utility inside the AS_HOME/bin folder and an executable JAR in AS_HOME/lib.

    You can use the admin CLI to connect to your TIBCO BusinessEvents cluster and collect useful information to help gather important cluster-specific details.

    Detailed instructions to connect to cluster and collect as-admin stats:

    Set environment:

     set AS_HOME=<TIBCO_HOME>/as/<version> set PATH=%AS_HOME%/lib;%PATH%


     export AS_HOME=<TIBCO_HOME>/as/<version> export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$AS_HOME/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH


    Run as-admin

    Run as-admin executable in AS_HOME/bin folder or in case of older versions as-admin.jar in AS_HOME/lib folder (java -jar as-admin.jar)


    connect to your cluster using following simple command at as-admin command prompt


     as-admin> connect name "<Cluster_Name>" discovery "<Discovery_URL>" listen "<Listen_URL_For_As_Admin>" 


    Full Syntax:
     connect [name <string>] [discovery <string>] [listen <string>]  [member_name <string>] [security_token <string>]  [security_policy <string>] [identity_password <string>] [authentication_domain <string>] [authentication_username <string>] [authentication_password <string>] [authentication_keyfile <string>]


    Show Members

     as-admin> show members Lists all members (including as-admin) which are part of the cluster


    Show Spaces

     as-admin> show spaces Lists all the spaces


    Show space

    Look at specific space in the cluster

     as-admin> show space "<space_name>" This will give you information on number of entries, replicas and specific operation summary on specific space.



     as-admin>qldump qldump lists all the spaces and their recovery status.


    The following columns make up the result of "qldump" command:

    • State: Space state

    • Recovery policy: The recovery policy you used for your last recovery(you can find more details in the document for recovery policies), the default for TIBCO BusinessEvents cluster is no_data_loss

    • Seed: shows if seed is okay.

    • Quorum: shows if the last recovery matched the recovery quorum

    • Persist: shows if persist is okay.

    • Loaded: shows if data loaded from a persistent file

    • DataLost: shows if any data loss for the last recovery

    • LoadOk: shows if the last load is successfully loaded

    • View: we have a View number for all persistent files to sync the persistent files.

    • Seeders: shows how many seeders joined the space

    • Quorum: shows the quorum you used for the last recovery

    • Exception: shows if any exceptions during recovery

    Note: The usage information for as-admin can be obtained by invoking as-admin -help from the ActiveSpaces bin directory in a command window.
