Start/Stop/Download/Delete Telemetry SessionsPermanent link for this heading

Start a Software-Telemetry session for a specific application defined by <applname> and <applid>. Set the application specific filter value (for example <domain\>) and define the detail level for the recording session.

Command Line Client (Linux)  – Start Session

> apptelemetry start session <applname> <applid> <filter> [normal|detail|debug] “description”

    Example: > apptelemetry start session "Fabasoft Folio" "1.1470" "COO.1.1470.1.12" debug "Test from commandline client"

              Session 10 started

After the application tasks have run stop the telemetry session again. Define the ID of the started session or keep this field empty to stop the last started session.

Command Line Client (Linux)  – Stop Session

> apptelemetry stop session

> apptelemetry stop session <sessionid>

    Example: > apptelemetry stop session 10

               Session 10 stopping
           Session 10 started=0 pending=0

After the session was stopped it could be downloaded to the client machine. Define the ID of the stopped session or use the keyword “latest” to download the last stopped session.

If you define an output filename the session ZIP archive is stored to this path, otherwise (if kept empty) the session is written to the configured download target directory with a default filename (

Command Line Client (Linux)  – Download Session

> apptelemetry download session

> apptelemetry download session <sessionid>|latest []

    successfully downloaded infrastructure
    Request      1 id=2597
    Request      7 id=2602
    successfully downloaded request 2597

When a session is not used any longer, or you need to clean up the server, the session can be deleted from the Fabasoft app.telemetry server with the following command.

Command Line Client (Linux) – Delete Session

> apptelemetry delete session

> apptelemetry delete session <sessionid>

    Example: > apptelemetry delete session 10

               Session 10 deleted

The session and the session information files will be deleted permanently from the server. The raw Software-Telemetry data files will not be deleted by this call, because they may be needed by other sessions. (These raw data files stored in daily directories on the server should be cleaned up manually after some time when they are not needed any more.)

Execute ScriptsPermanent link for this heading

You can execute an infrastructure configuration script directly from the app.telemetry command line.

Command Line Client (Linux) – Execute Script

> apptelemetry execute mypackage.js param1

In order to use the infrastructure-scripting API, it is required to provide the scripts located in the infrastructure-scripting folder of the install directory. If you use the app.telemetry command line from a remote computer provide the -host and -port parameters to connect to the app.telemetry server. A trusted certificate has to be used in order to authenticate successfully with the server (see Installation Guide for further information on trusted certificates).

PackagesPermanent link for this heading

Packages are used to provide configuration information in form of xml files and infrastructure scripts. With the app.telemetry command line tool you can list, upload and download packages and trigger the execution of the contained scripts.

Command Line Client (Linux) – Execute Script

> apptelemetry package list

> apptelemetry package upload <>

> apptelemetry package download <packagename> []

> apptelemetry package execute <packagename>
