       gnt-cluster - Ganeti administration, cluster-wide


       gnt-cluster {command} [arguments...]


       The gnt-cluster is used for cluster-wide administration in the Ganeti system.



       Activates the master IP on the master node.

       command [-n node] [-g group] [-M] {command}

       Executes  a  command  on  all nodes.  This command is designed for simple usage.  For more
       complex use cases the commands dsh(1) or cssh(1) should be used instead.

       If the option -n is not given, the command will be executed on  all  nodes,  otherwise  it
       will be executed only on the node(s) specified.  Use the option multiple times for running
       it on multiple nodes, like:

              # gnt-cluster command -n -n date

       The -g option can be used to run a command only on a specific node group, e.g.:

              # gnt-cluster command -g default date

       The -M option can be used to prepend the node name to all output  lines.   The  --failure-
       only option hides successful commands, making it easier to see failures.

       The  command is executed serially on the selected nodes.  If the master node is present in
       the list, the command will be executed last on the master.  Regarding the other nodes, the
       execution  order  is  somewhat  alphabetic, so that will be earlier than but after

       So given the node names node1, node2, node3, node10, node11, with node3 being the  master,
       the order will be: node1, node2, node10, node11, node3.

       The  command  is  constructed  by  concatenating  all  other  command line arguments.  For
       example, to list the contents of the /etc directory on all nodes, run:

              # gnt-cluster command ls -l /etc

       and the command which will be executed will be ls -l /etc.

       copyfile [--use-replication-network] [-n node] [-g group]

       Copies a file to all or to some nodes.  The argument specifies the  source  file  (on  the
       current  system),  the  -n  argument  specifies the target node, or nodes if the option is
       given multiple times.  If -n is not given at all, the file will be copied  to  all  nodes.
       The  -g  option  can  be  used to only select nodes in a specific node group.  Passing the
       --use-replication-network option will cause the copy  to  be  done  over  the  replication
       network (only matters if the primary/secondary IPs are different).  Example:

              # gnt-cluster -n -n copyfile /tmp/test

       This will copy the file /tmp/test from the current node to the two named nodes.

       deactivate-master-ip [--yes]

       Deactivates the master IP on the master node.

       This  should  be  run  only  locally  or  on  a  connection  to the node ip directly, as a
       connection to the master ip will be broken by this operation.  Because  of  this  risk  it
       will require user confirmation unless the --yes option is passed.

       destroy {--yes-do-it}

       Remove  all  configuration files related to the cluster, so that a gnt-cluster init can be
       done again afterwards.

       Since this is a dangerous command, you are required to pass the argument --yes-do-it.

       epo [--on] [--groups|--all] [--power-delay] arguments

       Performs an emergency power-off on nodes  given  as  arguments.   If  --groups  is  given,
       arguments are node groups.  If --all is provided, the whole cluster will be shut down.

       The  --on  flag  recovers  the cluster after an emergency power-off.  When powering on the
       cluster you can use --power-delay to define the time in seconds (fractions allowed) waited
       between powering on individual nodes.

       Please  note  that  the  master node will not be turned down or up automatically.  It will
       just be left in a state, where you can manully perform the shutdown of that one node.   If
       the  master  is in the list of affected nodes and this is not a complete cluster emergency
       power-off (e.g.  using --all), you're required to do a master failover to another node not


       Displays the current master node.

       info [--roman]

       Shows runtime cluster information: cluster name, architecture (32 or 64 bit), master node,
       node list and instance list.

       Passing the --roman option gnt-cluster info will try to print  its  integer  fields  in  a
       latin friendly way.  This allows further diffusion of Ganeti among ancient cultures.

       This commands is only run once initially on the  first  node  of  the  cluster.   It  will
       initialize  the cluster configuration, setup the ssh-keys, start the daemons on the master
       node, etc.  in order to have a working one-node cluster.

       Note that the clustername is not any random name.  It  has  to  be  resolvable  to  an  IP
       address  using  DNS,  and  it  is  best if you give the fully-qualified domain name.  This
       hostname must resolve to an IP address reserved exclusively for this  purpose,  i.e.   not
       already in use.

       The  cluster  can  run  in  two  modes: single-home or dual-homed.  In the first case, all
       traffic (both public traffic, inter-node traffic and data replication traffic)  goes  over
       the  same  interface.   In the dual-homed case, the data replication traffic goes over the
       second network.  The -s (--secondary-ip) option here marks the cluster as  dual-homed  and
       its parameter represents this node's address on the second network.  If you initialise the
       cluster with -s, all nodes added must have a secondary IP as well.

       Note that for Ganeti it doesn't matter if the secondary network  is  actually  a  separate
       physical  network,  or  is  done  using  tunneling,  etc.   For  performance reasons, it's
       recommended to use a separate network, of course.

       The --vg-name option will let you specify a volume group different than "xenvg" for Ganeti
       to  use  when  creating  instance disks.  This volume group must have the same name on all
       nodes.  Once the cluster is initialized this can be altered by using the  modify  command.
       Note that if the volume group name is modified after the cluster creation and DRBD support
       is enabled you might have to manually modify the metavg as well.

       If you don't want to use lvm storage at all use  the  --enabled-disk-templates  option  to
       restrict  the  set  of  enabled  disk  templates.  Once the cluster is initialized you can
       change this setup with the modify command.

       The --master-netdev option is useful for specifying a different  interface  on  which  the
       master  will  activate  its IP address.  It's important that all nodes have this interface
       because you'll need it for a master failover.

       The --master-netmask option allows to specify a netmask for the master  IP.   The  netmask
       must  be  specified as an integer, and will be interpreted as a CIDR netmask.  The default
       value is 32 for an IPv4 address and 128 for an IPv6 address.

       The --use-external-mip-script option allows to specify whether  to  use  an  user-supplied
       master IP address setup script, whose location is /etc/ganeti/scripts/master-ip-setup.  If
       the   option   value   is   set   to   False,   the    default    script    (located    at
       /usr/lib/ganeti/tools/master-ip-setup) will be executed.

       The  -m (--mac-prefix)  option  will  let  you specify a three byte prefix under which the
       virtual MAC addresses of your instances will be generated.  The prefix must  be  specified
       in the format XX:XX:XX and the default is aa:00:00.

       The  --no-etc-hosts  option  allows  you  to  initialize the cluster without modifying the
       /etc/hosts file.

       The --no-ssh-init option  allows  you  to  initialize  the  cluster  without  creating  or
       distributing SSH key pairs.

       The  --file-storage-dir  and --shared-file-storage-dir options allow you set the directory
       to use for storing the instance disk files when using file storage  backend,  respectively
       shared  file  storage  backend,  for  instance  disks.  Note that the file and shared file
       storage dir must be  an  allowed  directory  for  file  storage.   Those  directories  are
       specified in the /etc/ganeti/file-storage-paths file.  The file storage directory can also
       be a subdirectory of an allowed one.  The file storage directory should be present on  all

       The  --prealloc-wipe-disks  sets a cluster wide configuration value for wiping disks prior
       to allocation and size  changes  (gnt-instance grow-disk).   This  increases  security  on
       instance level as the instance can't access untouched data from its underlying storage.

       The  --enabled-hypervisors  option  allows you to set the list of hypervisors that will be
       enabled for this cluster.  Instance hypervisors can  only  be  chosen  from  the  list  of
       enabled hypervisors, and the first entry of this list will be used by default.  Currently,
       the following hypervisors are available:

              Xen PVM hypervisor

              Xen HVM hypervisor

       kvm    Linux KVM hypervisor

       chroot a simple chroot manager that starts chroot based on a script at  the  root  of  the
              filesystem holding the chroot

       fake   fake hypervisor for development/testing

       Either  a  single  hypervisor  name  or  a comma-separated list of hypervisor names can be
       specified.  If this option is not specified, only the xen-pvm  hypervisor  is  enabled  by

       The  -H (--hypervisor-parameters)  option  allows  you  to set default hypervisor specific
       parameters for the cluster.  The format of this option is  the  name  of  the  hypervisor,
       followed by a colon and a comma-separated list of key=value pairs.  The keys available for
       each hypervisors are detailed in the gnt-instance(8) man page, in the add command plus the
       following parameters which are only configurable globally (at cluster level):

              Valid for the Xen PVM and KVM hypervisors.

              This  options  specifies the TCP port to use for live-migration.  For Xen, the same
              port should be configured on all nodes in the /etc/xen/xend-config.sxp file,  under
              the key "xend-relocation-port".

              Valid for the KVM hypervisor.

              This  option  specifies  the  maximum bandwidth that KVM will use for instance live
              migrations.  The value is in MiB/s.

              This option is only effective with kvm versions >=  78  and  qemu-kvm  versions  >=

       The  -B (--backend-parameters) option allows you to set the default backend parameters for
       the cluster.  The parameter format is a comma-separated list of key=value pairs  with  the
       following supported keys:

       vcpus  Number  of VCPUs to set for an instance by default, must be an integer, will be set
              to 1 if no specified.

       maxmem Maximum amount of memory to allocate for an instance by default, can be  either  an
              integer  or  an integer followed by a unit (M for mebibytes and G for gibibytes are
              supported), will be set to 128M if not specified.

       minmem Minimum amount of memory to allocate for an instance by default, can be  either  an
              integer  or  an integer followed by a unit (M for mebibytes and G for gibibytes are
              supported), will be set to 128M if not specified.

              Value of the auto_balance flag for instances to use by default, will be set to true
              if not specified.

              Default  value  for  the  always_failover  flag for instances; if not set, False is

       The  -N (--nic-parameters)  option  allows  you  to  set  the  default  network  interface
       parameters  for  the cluster.  The parameter format is a comma-separated list of key=value
       pairs with the following supported keys:

       mode   The default NIC mode, one of routed, bridged or openvswitch.

       link   In bridged or openvswitch mode the default interface  where  to  attach  NICs.   In
              routed  mode  it  represents  an  hypervisor-vif-script  dependent  value  to allow
              different instance groups.  For example under the KVM default network script it  is
              interpreted  as  a  routing  table  number  or  name.   Openvswitch support is also
              hypervisor dependent and currently works for the default KVM network script.  Under
              Xen a custom network script must be provided.

       The  -D (--disk-parameters)  option allows you to set the default disk template parameters
       at cluster level.  The format used for this option is similar to the one  use  by  the  -H
       option:  the  disk  template  name  must  be specified first, followed by a colon and by a
       comma-separated list of key-value pairs.   These  parameters  can  only  be  specified  at
       cluster  and node group level; the cluster-level parameter are inherited by the node group
       at the moment of its creation, and can be further modified at node group level  using  the
       gnt-group(8) command.

       The  following  is  the  list  of  disk  parameters  available for the drbd template, with
       measurement units specified in square  brackets  at  the  end  of  the  description  (when

              Static re-synchronization rate.  [KiB/s]

              What  kind  of  barriers to disable for disks.  It can either assume the value "n",
              meaning no barrier disabled, or a non-empty  string  containing  a  subset  of  the
              characters "bfd".  "b" means disable disk barriers, "f" means disable disk flushes,
              "d" disables disk drains.

              Boolean value indicating whether the meta barriers should be disabled (True) or not

       metavg String  containing  the name of the default LVM volume group for DRBD metadata.  By
              default, it is set to xenvg.  It can be overridden  during  the  instance  creation
              process by using the metavg key of the --disk parameter.

              String  containing  additional  parameters  to be appended to the arguments list of
              drbdsetup disk.

              String containing additional parameters to be appended to  the  arguments  list  of

              Replication protocol for the DRBD device.  Has to be either "A", "B" or "C".  Refer
              to the DRBD documentation for further information about the differences between the

              Boolean  indicating  whether to use the dynamic resync speed controller or not.  If
              enabled, c-plan-ahead must be non-zero and all the c-* parameters will be  used  by
              DRBD.  Otherwise, the value of resync-rate will be used as a static resync speed.

       List of parameters available for the plain template:

              Number of stripes to use for new LVs.

       List of parameters available for the rbd template:

       pool   The RADOS cluster pool, inside which all rbd volumes will reside.  When a new RADOS
              cluster is deployed,  the  default  pool  to  put  rbd  volumes  (Images  in  RADOS
              terminology) is 'rbd'.

       The  option  --maintain-node-health  allows  one  to  enable/disable automatic maintenance
       actions  on  nodes.   Currently  these  include  automatic  shutdown  of   instances   and
       deactivation  of  DRBD  devices  on  offline  nodes; in the future it might be extended to
       automatic removal of unknown LVM volumes, etc.  Note that this option is  only  useful  if
       the use of ganeti-confd was enabled at compilation.

       The  --uid-pool  option  initializes  the  user-id  pool.  The user-id pool definition can
       contain a list of user-ids and/or a list of user-id ranges.  The  parameter  format  is  a
       comma-separated  list  of numeric user-ids or user-id ranges.  The ranges are defined by a
       lower and higher boundary, separated by a dash.  The boundaries  are  inclusive.   If  the
       --uid-pool  option  is not supplied, the user-id pool is initialized to an empty list.  An
       empty list means that the user-id pool feature is disabled.

       The -I (--default-iallocator)  option  specifies  the  default  instance  allocator.   The
       instance  allocator  will be used for operations like instance creation, instance and node
       migration, etc.  when no manual override is specified.  If this option  is  not  specified
       and  htools  was  not enabled at build time, the default instance allocator will be blank,
       which means that relevant operations will require the administrator  to  manually  specify
       either  an  instance  allocator,  or  a  set of nodes.  If the option is not specified but
       htools was enabled, the default iallocator will be hail(1) (assuming it can  be  found  on
       disk).  The default iallocator can be changed later using the modify command.

       The  --primary-ip-version  option  specifies  the IP version used for the primary address.
       Possible values are 4 and 6 for IPv4 and IPv6, respectively.  This  option  is  used  when
       resolving node names and the cluster name.

       The  --node-parameters  option  allows you to set default node parameters for the cluster.
       Please see ganeti(7) for more information about supported key=value pairs.

       The -C (--candidate-pool-size) option specifies the candidate_pool_size cluster parameter.
       This  is  the  number of nodes that the master will try to keep as master_candidates.  For
       more details about this role and other node roles, see the ganeti(7).

       The --specs-... and --ipolicy-... options specify the instance policy on the cluster.  The
       --ipolicy-bounds-specs  option  sets the minimum and maximum specifications for instances.
       The format is: min:param=value,.../max:param=value,...  and further  specifications  pairs
       can  be  added by using // as a separator.  The --ipolicy-std-specs option takes a list of
       parameter/value pairs.  For both options, param can be:

       · cpu-count: number of VCPUs for an instance

       · disk-count: number of disk for an instance

       · disk-size: size of each disk

       · memory-size: instance memory

       · nic-count: number of network interface

       · spindle-use: spindle usage for an instance

       For the --specs-... options, each option can have three values: min, max  and  std,  which
       can  also be modified on group level (except for std, which is defined once for the entire
       cluster).  Please note, that std values are not the same as defaults  set  by  --beparams,
       but they are used for the capacity calculations.

       · --specs-cpu-count limits the number of VCPUs that can be used by an instance.

       · --specs-disk-count limits the number of disks

       · --specs-disk-size limits the disk size for every disk used

       · --specs-mem-size limits the amount of memory available

       · --specs-nic-count sets limits on the number of NICs used

       The  --ipolicy-spindle-ratio  option takes a decimal number.  The --ipolicy-disk-templates
       option takes a comma-separated list of disk templates.  This list of disk  templates  must
       be  a  subset  of  the  list of cluster-wide enabled disk templates (which can be set with

       · --ipolicy-spindle-ratio limits the instances-spindles ratio

       · --ipolicy-vcpu-ratio limits the vcpu-cpu ratio

       All the instance policy elements can be overridden at group level.  Group level  overrides
       can be removed by specifying default as the value of an item.

       The  --drbd-usermode-helper  option  can be used to specify a usermode helper.  Check that
       this string is the one used by the DRBD kernel.

       For details about how to use --hypervisor-state and --disk-state have a look at ganeti(7).

       The --enabled-disk-templates option specifies a list of disk templates that can be used by
       instances  of  the  cluster.   For  the possible values in this list, see gnt-instance(8).
       Note that in contrast to the list of disk templates in the ipolicy, this list  is  a  hard
       restriction.   It  is  not  possible  to create instances with disk templates that are not
       enabled in the cluster.  It is also not possible to disable a disk template when there are
       still instances using it.  The first disk template in the list of enabled disk template is
       the default disk template.  It will be used for instance creation, if no disk template  is
       requested explicitely.

       master-failover [--no-voting] [--yes-do-it]

       Failover the master role to the current node.

       The  --no-voting  option  skips  the remote node agreement checks.  This is dangerous, but
       necessary in some cases (for example failing over the master role in a 2 node cluster with
       the  original  master  down).   If  the original master then comes up, it won't be able to
       start its master daemon because it won't have enough votes, but so won't the  new  master,
       if  the master daemon ever needs a restart.  You can pass --no-voting to ganeti-masterd on
       the new master to solve this problem, and run gnt-cluster redist-conf  to  make  sure  the
       cluster is consistent again.

       The  option  --yes-do-it  is  used together with --no-voting, for skipping the interactive
       checks.  This is even more dangerous, and should only be used in  conjunction  with  other
       means (e.g.  a HA suite) to confirm that the operation is indeed safe.


       Checks if the master daemon is alive.

       If  the  master  daemon  is alive and can respond to a basic query (the equivalent of gnt-
       cluster info), then the exit code of the command will be 0.  If the master daemon  is  not
       alive  (either  due to a crash or because this is not the master node), the exit code will
       be 1.

       Modify the options for the cluster.

       The   --vg-name,   --enabled-hypervisors,   -H (--hypervisor-parameters),   -B (--backend-
       parameters),    -D (--disk-parameters),    --nic-parameters,   -C (--candidate-pool-size),
       --maintain-node-health, --prealloc-wipe-disks,  --uid-pool,  --node-parameters,  --master-
       netdev,   --master-netmask,   --use-external-mip-script,  --drbd-usermode-helper,  --file-
       storage-dir, --shared-file-storage-dir, and --enabled-disk-templates options are described
       in the init command.

       The --hypervisor-state and --disk-state options are described in detail in ganeti(7).

       The  --add-uids  and  --remove-uids  options  can  be  used  to modify the user-id pool by
       adding/removing a list of user-ids or user-id ranges.

       The option --reserved-lvs specifies a list (comma-separated) of logical volume group names
       (regular  expressions)  that  will  be  ignored  by the cluster verify operation.  This is
       useful if the volume group used for Ganeti is shared with the system for other uses.  Note
       that  it's  not recommended to create and mark as ignored logical volume names which match
       Ganeti's own name format (starting with UUID and then .diskN), as this option  only  skips
       the verification, but not the actual use of the names given.

       To  remove  all  reserved  logical volumes, pass in an empty argument to the option, as in
       --reserved-lvs= or --reserved-lvs ''.

       The -I (--default-iallocator) is described in the init  command.   To  clear  the  default
       iallocator, just pass an empty string ('').

       The --ipolicy-... options are described in the init command.

       See ganeti(7) for a description of --submit and other common options.

       queue {drain | undrain | info}

       Change job queue properties.

       The  drain option sets the drain flag on the job queue.  No new jobs will be accepted, but
       jobs already in the queue will be processed.

       The undrain will unset the drain flag on the job queue.  New jobs will be accepted.

       The info option shows the properties of the job queue.

       watcher {pause duration | continue | info}

       Make the watcher pause or let it continue.

       The pause option causes the watcher to pause for duration seconds.

       The continue option will let the watcher continue.

       The info option shows whether the watcher is currently paused.

       redist-conf [--submit] [--print-job-id]

       This command forces a full push of configuration files from the master node to  the  other
       nodes in the cluster.  This is normally not needed, but can be run if the verify complains
       about configuration mismatches.

       See ganeti(7) for a description of --submit and other common options.

       rename [-f] {name}

       Renames the cluster and in the process updates the master IP address to the  one  the  new
       name  resolves  to.   At least one of either the name or the IP address must be different,
       otherwise the operation will be aborted.

       Note that since this command can be dangerous (especially when run over SSH), the  command
       will require confirmation unless run with the -f option.

       renew-crypto [-f]
       [--new-cluster-certificate] [--new-confd-hmac-key]
       [--new-rapi-certificate] [--rapi-certificate rapi-cert]
       [--new-spice-certificate | --spice-certificate spice-cert
       --spice-ca-certificate spice-ca-cert]
       [--new-cluster-domain-secret] [--cluster-domain-secret filename]

       This command will stop all Ganeti daemons in the cluster and start them again once the new
       certificates and keys are replicated.  The options  --new-cluster-certificate  and  --new-
       confd-hmac-key can be used to regenerate respectively the cluster-internal SSL certificate
       and the HMAC key used by ganeti-confd(8).

       To generate a new self-signed RAPI certificate (used  by  ganeti-rapi(8))  specify  --new-
       rapi-certificate.   If  you  want  to  use  your  own  certificate,  e.g.  one signed by a
       certificate authority (CA), pass its filename to --rapi-certificate.

       To generate a new self-signed SPICE certificate, used for SPICE  connections  to  the  KVM
       hypervisor,  specify  the  --new-spice-certificate  option.   If  you  want  to  provide a
       certificate, pass its filename to --spice-certificate and pass the signing CA  certificate
       to --spice-ca-certificate.

       Finally  --new-cluster-domain-secret  generates  a  new, random cluster domain secret, and
       --cluster-domain-secret reads the secret from a file.  The cluster domain secret  is  used
       to sign information exchanged between separate clusters via a third party.

       repair-disk-sizes [instance...]

       This  command  checks  that  the  recorded  size of the given instance's disks matches the
       actual size and updates any mismatches found.  This is needed if the Ganeti  configuration
       is  no  longer  consistent  with  reality,  as it will impact some disk operations.  If no
       arguments are given, all instances will be checked.  When  exclusive  storage  is  active,
       also spindles are updated.

       Note  that  only  active  disks  can  be checked by this command; in case a disk cannot be
       activated it's advised to use  gnt-instance  activate-disks  --ignore-size  ...  to  force
       activation without regard to the current size.

       When  all  the disk sizes are consistent, the command will return no output.  Otherwise it
       will log details about the inconsistencies in the configuration.

       verify [--no-nplus1-mem] [--node-group nodegroup]
       [--error-codes] [{-I|--ignore-errors} errorcode]
       [{-I|--ignore-errors} errorcode...]

       Verify correctness of cluster  configuration.   This  is  safe  with  respect  to  running
       instances, and incurs no downtime of the instances.

       If  the  --no-nplus1-mem option is given, Ganeti won't check whether if it loses a node it
       can restart all the instances on their secondaries (and report an error otherwise).

       With --node-group, restrict the verification to those nodes and instances that live in the
       named group.  This will not verify global settings, but will allow to perform verification
       of a group while other operations are ongoing in other groups.

       The  --error-codes  option  outputs  each  error  in  the  following   parseable   format:
       ftype:ecode:edomain:name:msg.  These fields have the following meaning:

       ftype  Failure type.  Can be WARNING or ERROR.

       ecode  Error code of the failure.  See below for a list of error codes.

              Can be cluster, node or instance.

       name   Contains the name of the item that is affected from the failure.

       msg    Contains a descriptive error message about the error

       gnt-cluster verify will have a non-zero exit code if at least one of the failures that are
       found are of type ERROR.

       The --ignore-errors option can be used to change this behaviour, because  it  demotes  the
       error represented by the error code received as a parameter to a warning.  The option must
       be    repeated    for     each     error     that     should     be     ignored     (e.g.:
       -I ENODEVERSION -I ENODEORPHANLV).   The --error-codes option can be used to determine the
       error code of a given error.

       List of error codes:

              Shared file storage path unusable

              Instance running on the wrong node

              Error during connection to the primary node of an instance

              Instance with primary and secondary nodes in different groups

              Some instances have a non-existing primary node


       The command checks which instances have degraded DRBD disks and  activates  the  disks  of
       those instances.

       This   command  is  run  from  the  ganeti-watcher  tool,  which  also  has  a  different,
       complementary algorithm for doing this check.  Together, these two should ensure that DRBD
       disks are kept consistent.


       Show the cluster version.

       add-tags [--from file] {tag...}

       Add  tags  to  the  cluster.   If  any of the tags contains invalid characters, the entire
       operation will abort.

       If the --from option is given, the list of tags will be extended with the contents of that
       file  (each  line  becomes  a  tag).   In this case, there is not need to pass tags on the
       command line (if you do, both sources will be used).  A file name of - will be interpreted
       as stdin.


       List the tags of the cluster.

       remove-tags [--from file] {tag...}

       Remove  tags  from  the  cluster.  If any of the tags are not existing on the cluster, the
       entire operation will abort.

       If the --from option is given, the list of tags to be removed will be  extended  with  the
       contents  of that file (each line becomes a tag).  In this case, there is not need to pass
       tags on the command line (if you do, tags from both sources will be removed).  A file name
       of - will be interpreted as stdin.

       search-tags {pattern}

       Searches  the  tags  on  all objects in the cluster (the cluster itself, the nodes and the
       instances) for a given pattern.  The pattern is interpreted as a regular expression and  a
       search will be done on it (i.e.  the given pattern is not anchored to the beggining of the
       string; if you want that, prefix the pattern with ^).

       If no tags are matching the pattern, the exit code of the command will be one.   If  there
       is  at least one match, the exit code will be zero.  Each match is listed on one line, the
       object and the tag separated by a space.  The cluster will be listed as /cluster,  a  node
       will be listed as /nodes/name, and an instance as /instances/name.  Example:

              # gnt-cluster search-tags time
              /cluster ctime:2007-09-01
              /nodes/ mtime:2007-10-04
