NAME

       riemann-client - Riemann communication tool

SYNOPSIS

       riemann-client query [OPTIONS...] QUERY [HOST] [PORT]
       riemann-client send [OPTIONS...] [HOST] [PORT]
       riemann-client --help|-?
       riemann-client --version

DESCRIPTION

       riemann-client  is  a  very  simple  tool to facilitate communication with a Riemann event
       stream processing server. It can be used both for sending events to one, and to  query  it
       too.

OPTIONS

       In both query and send mode, HOST and PORT default to localhost and 5555, respectively.

   Query mode
       In query mode, riemann-client takes one mandatory argument: the query itself. It must be a
       single argument, which will be sent to Riemann as-is,  and  the  response  dumped  to  the
       standard  output,  or,  in  case  of  an  error,  the error message will be written to the
       standard error.

       See the Riemann documentation http://riemann.io/concepts.html for more  information  about
       the query syntax.

       Apart  from  the  mandatory  argument, the riemann-client accepts the following options in
       query mode:

       -j, --json
              Print the result in JSON format, instead of the default, human-readable one.

       -T, --tcp
              Send the event via TCP (the default).

       -G, --tls
              Send the event via TLS.

       -o, --option option=value
              Set one client option to the given value.

              Available client options are:

              cafile Path to the file containing trusted certificate authority certificates. Only
                     used for TLS connections.

              certfile
                     Path to the file containing the public client certificate. Only used for TLS
                     connections.

              keyfile
                     Path to the file containing the  private  client  key.  Only  used  for  TLS
                     connections.

              priorities
                     Priorities for the cipher suites to be used for the session.

   Submit mode
       In submit mode, riemann-client accepts the following options:

       -s, --state STATE
              The state the event should describe, free-form text, optional.

       -S, --service SERVICE
              The service the event is coming from.

       -h, --host HOST
              The  host  the  event  originates  from.  Not to be confused with the optional HOST
              parameter of riemann-client itself, which sets where to send the events to.

       -D, --description DESCRIPTION
              The description of the event, optional.

       -t, --tag TAG
              This option can be used multiple times to add tags to the event.

       -a, --attribute NAME=VALUE
              This option can be used multiple times to add custom attributes to the event.

       -i, --metric-sint64 METRIC
              Sets the metric for the event, using integer precision.

       -d, --metric-d METRIC
              Sets the metric of the event, using double precision.

       -f, --metric-f METRIC
              Sets the metric of the event, using floating point precision.

       -L, --ttl TTL
              An optional time-to-live of the event, in seconds (floating point number).

       -T, --tcp
              Send the event via TCP (the default).

       -U, --udp
              Send the event via UDP.

       -G, --tls
              Send the event via TLS.

       -o, --option option=value
              Set one client option to the given value.

              Available client options are:

              cafile Path to the file containing trusted certificate authority certificates. Only
                     used for TLS connections.

              certfile
                     Path to the file containing the public client certificate. Only used for TLS
                     connections.

              keyfile
                     Path to the file containing the  private  client  key.  Only  used  for  TLS
                     connections.

              priorities
                     Priorities for the cipher suites to be used for the session.

       -0,  --stdin
              Continuously  read  and send metrics and states from standard input. Uses all other
              fields specified on the command line. For each line on standard input, a new  event
              will  be sent to Riemann. If the input is a number, it will be used as a metric. If
              not, it will be used as the state. If it is a number, followed by a space and  some
              string, then both metric and state will be set for the outgoing event.

EXAMPLES

   Sending an event
       $ riemann-client send --state ok \
                             --service "client-test" \
                             --host "my-host" \
                             --description "A message from the Manual" \
                             --tag tag-1 --tag tag-2 \
                             --attribute x-manual=best-friend \
                             --metric-sint64 1 \
                             --ttl 300.5 \
                             --tcp

   Sending metrics / state from standard input
       $ echo "1.5 ok" |  \
         riemann-client send --service "client-test: stdin" \
                             --host "my-host" \
                             --description "A message from STDIN" \
                             --tag stdin \
                             --tcp \
                             --stdin

   Querying Riemann
       $ riemann-client query 'host = "my-host"'

   Using TLS
       $ riemann-client query 'host = "my-host"' \
                              --tls \
                              --option cafile=tests/data/cacert.pem \
                              --option certfile=tests/data/client.crt \
                              --option keyfile=tests/data/client.key \
                              --option priorities=NORMAL \
                              localhost 5554
