Command Line Workstation, or just CLW, is Introscope's command line tool that lets you perform certain tasks on the command line. Following is an example of how to issue a command using CLW. This example is executed on the server that contains the Introscope Enterprise Manager (EM). This assumes the Enterprise Manager is running and a username and password has already been defined in users.xml or LDAP and that realms.xml is configured to get users from users.xml or LDAP.

cd <EM_root>/lib

java -Duser=<your username> -Dpassword=<your password> -jar CLWorkstation.jar help


The above example should return stdout, like this.

Command Line Workstation Commands:
(activate|enable) snmp collections matching [REGULAR EXPRESSION] in management modules matching [REGULAR EXPRESSION]
et cetera


Command Line Workstation can also be invoked from remote servers, as long as the remote servers are able to communicate with the Enterprise Manager server on the network. You would simply copy the CLWorkstation.jar file from the Enterprise Manager server to the remote server, and then include the -Dhost option on the command line, where -Dhost is the hostname of the Enterprise Manager server.

java -Duser=<your username> -Dpassword=<your password> -Dhost=<hostname> -jar CLWorkstation.jar help


A good starting point is the list agents command.
