NAME

       knife-status - The man page for the knife status subcommand.

       The  knife  status  subcommand  is  used to display a brief summary of the nodes on a Chef
       server, including the time of the most recent successful chef-client run.

       Syntax

       This subcommand has the following syntax:

          $ knife status (options)

       Options

       This subcommand has the following options:

       -c CONFIG_FILE, --config CONFIG_FILE
              The configuration file to use.

       --chef-zero-port PORT

              Use to view colored output.

       -d, --disable-editing
              Use to prevent the $EDITOR from being opened and to accept data as-is.

       --defaults
              Use to have knife use the default value instead of asking a user to provide one.

       -e EDITOR, --editor EDITOR
              The $EDITOR that is used for all interactive commands.

       -E ENVIRONMENT, --environment ENVIRONMENT
              The name of the environment. When this option is added to a  command,  the  command

              The output format: summary (default), text, json, yaml, and pp.

       -h, --help
              Shows help for the command.

       -H, --hide-healthy
              Use to hide nodes on which a chef-client run has occurred within the previous hour.

       -k KEY, --key KEY
              The  private key that knife will use to sign requests made by the API client to the
              Chef server.

       --print-after
              Use to show data after a destructive operation.

       SEARCH_QUERY
              The search query used to identify a a list of items on a Chef server.  This  option
              uses the same syntax as the search sub-command.

       -r RUN_LIST, --run-list RUN_LIST
              A comma-separated list of roles and/or recipes to be applied.

       -s, --sort-reverse
              Use to sort a list by last run time, descending.

       --server-url URL
              The URL for the Chef server.

       -u USER, --user USER
              The  user  name  used  by knife to sign requests made by the API client to the Chef
              server. Authentication will fail if the user name does not match the private key.

       -v, --version
              The version of the chef-client.

       -V, --verbose
              Set for more verbose outputs. Use -VV for maximum verbosity.

       -y, --yes

              confirmation.

       -z, --local-mode
              Use  to  run  the  chef-client  in  local  mode. This allows all commands that work
              against the Chef server to also work against the local chef-repo.

          $ knife status --run-list
