       AMinerRemoteControl - lightweight tool for log checking, log analysis


       AMinerRemoteControl --ControlSocket socket [--Exec code] [--ExecFile file] [--Data data]


       This manual page documents briefly the AMinerRemoteControl command. The command executes
       arbitrary remote control commands in a running AMiner child process. As child process is
       usually running with lowered privileges or SELinux/AppArmor confinement, you may observe
       unexpected results when accessing resources outside the child process, e.g. files. For
       more details see also packaged documentation at /usr/share/doc/logdata-anomaly-miner.

       Example usecases:

       Just a test: /usr/bin/AMinerRemoteControl --Data '["Some text", 123]' --Exec
       'remoteControlResponse="It works! Data %s" % repr(remoteControlData)'

       Query remote module configuration: /usr/bin/AMinerRemoteControl --Exec


       with long options starting with two dashes (`-'). A summary of options is included below.
       For a complete description, see the info(1) files.

       --ControlSocket socket
           Specify the Unix domain remote control socket path, otherwise
           /var/run/aminer-remote.socket is used. The socket is opened by AMiner when
           'RemoteControlSocket' feature is enabled in configuration. As the socket is of
           SOCK_STREAM type, it may also be forwarded via any other stream forwarders, e.g. socat
           (see UNIX-CONNECT and UNIX-LISTEN) and SSH (see LocalForward, DynamicForward). Access
           control is only done by file system permissions (DAC) of the socket, so make sure not
           to widen the access on error.

       --Exec code
           For each --Exec option, the next argument is sent in a separate remote execution
           request using additional execution data (see --Data). The code is executed in a
           separate separate execution namespace with only some variables added to the local
           namespace, e.g. execution data is available as 'remoteControlData'. When setting the
           local variable 'remoteControlResponse' within the executed code, the object is
           serialized using json and sent back in the response.

       --ExecFile file
           For each --ExecFile option, the named file is loaded and content submitted in the very
           same way as if --Exec parameter with content as string would have been used.

       --Data data
           This parameter defines a json string defining Python objects, that will be sent with
           all subsequent --Exec operations until changed again using another --Data option. Take
           into account, that there are size limits for the request, very large data objects may
           exceed those limits. The execution context will expose the data as variable

           When set, AMinerRemoteControl will not pass the result to repr. The returned object is
           just converted to a plain string via str(object) and the result is printed to avoid
           escaping of quotation marks, newlines, .... WARNING: This might be insecure: without
           escaping the printed data may contain terminal control sequences to exploit
           vulnerabilities or misconfiguration of your terminal to execute code with privileges
           of terminal or the process calling AMinerRemoteControl (usually root).


           This is the default remote control socket used when not changed using the
           --ControlSocket option.
