       catalog_update - send update to catalog server


       catalog_update [options] [name=value] ..


       The  catalog_update tool allows users to manually send an update to a catalog server via a
       short UDP packet.


       -c, --catalog=<host>
              Send update to this catalog host.

       -f, --file=<json-file>
               Send additional JSON attributes in this file.

       -d, --debug=<flags>
               Enable debug flags.

       -o, --debug-file=<file>
               Send debug output to this file.

        -v <version>
               Show software version.

        -h <help>
               Show all options.

       The catalog_update tool sends a custom message to the catalog server in the from of a JSON
       object  with  various properties describing the host.  By default, the catalog_update tool
       includes the following fields in the update:

       ·   type This describes the node type (default is "node").

       ·   version This is the version of CCTools.

       ·   cpu This is CPU architecture of the machine.

       ·   opsys This is operating system of the machine.

       ·   opsysversion This is operating system version of the machine.

       ·   load1 This is 1-minute load of the machine.

       ·   load5 This is 5-minute load of the machine.

       ·   load15 This is 15-minute load of the machine.

       ·   memory_total This is total amount of memory on the machine

       ·   memory_avail This is amount of available memory on the machine

       ·   cpus This is number of detected CPUs on the machine.

       ·   uptime This how long the machine has been running.

       ·   owner This is user who sent the update.


       ·   CATALOG_HOST Hostname of catalog server (same as -c).


       On success, returns zero.  On failure, returns non-zero.


       The following example sends an update to the catalog server located at
       with three custom fields.

               % cat > test.json << EOF
                   "type" : "node",
                   "has_java" : true,
                   "mode" : 3
               % catalog_update -c -f test.json
