       hcheck - Cluster checker


       hcheck {backend options...} [algorithm options...] [reporting options...]

       hcheck --version

       Backend options:

       { -m cluster | -L[ path ] |-t*data-file* | -I path }

       Algorithm options:

       [  --no-simulation  ]  [ --max-cpu cpu-ratio ] [ --min-disk disk-ratio ] [ -l limit ] [ -e
       score ] [ -g delta ] [ --min-gain-limit threshold ] [ -O name... ] [ --no-disk-moves  ]  [
       --no-instance-moves  ]  [  -U util-file ] [ --evac-mode ] [ --select-instances inst... ] [
       --exclude-instances inst... ]

       Reporting options:

       [--machine-readable[=CHOICE] ] [ -p[ fields ] ] [ --print-instances ] [ -v... | -q ]


       hcheck is the cluster checker.  It prints information about cluster's  health  and  checks
       whether a rebalance done using hbal would help.

       This information can be presented in both human-readable and machine-readable way.

       Note that it does not take any action, only performs a rebalance simulation if necessary.

       For more information about the algorithm details check hbal(1).


              Only  perform  checks  based  on  current cluster state, without trying to simulate

       For a detailed description about the options  listed  above  have  a  look  at  htools(1),
       hspace(1) and hbal(1).
