This guide describes how to use
cmtool, which is the CloudBees Build Acceleration command-line tool.
cmtool provides access to the Cluster Manager through a command-line interface instead of using the web interface. With cmtool, you can write Perl scripts to access Cluster Manager information or manage builds. Almost all ElectricAccelerator operations and tasks can be implemented with cmtool—with the exception of a few reports that are generated only from the web interface.
cmtool is used primarily for build and agent management, including commands for build class management, agent testing, and adding comments automatically.
