glite-lb-msg-brokers — manipulate messaging brokers information


glite-lb-msg-brokers [Options] find|list


glite-lb-msg-brokers has two different modes of operation. In all cases, it manipulates information about messaging brokers and reports a (possibly empty) list of broker URIs, one per line.


list all the URIs declared in the BDII, optionally filtered by network


the list functionality described above plus filter by GlueServiceStatus

A fatal error (e.g. cannot contact the BDII) will halt the program. A warning (e.g. a given URI cannot be contacted) will be reported unless --quiet is used. Both will be sent to STDERR.

The exit status will be 0 on success (with or without warnings) or different from 0 in case of a fatal error.


--bdii string

specify the name or name:port of the BDII to contact; this can also be a list, separated by commas or semicolons; if not set, it defaults to $LCG_GFAL_INFOSYS

--cache path

specify the path of a file to update with the list of URIs; if this is set, nothing will be printed on STDOUT; note: if the list is empty, the file will not be updated

--debug, -d

report debugging information; can be used multiple times for increased verbosity

--help, -h, -?

show some help

--manual, -m

show the complete man page

--network string

consider only the brokers for this network (for example PROD or TEST-NWOB)

--quiet, -q

suppress the printing of warnings

--sort, -s

sort the brokers per elapsed time to perform the test



host[:port] of the BDII to contact
