Evaluate the job with ID "job1":
$ nomad job eval job1 ==> Monitoring evaluation "0f3bc0f3" Evaluation triggered by job "test" Evaluation within deployment: "51baf5c8" Evaluation status changed: "pending" -> "complete" ==> Evaluation "0f3bc0f3" finished with status "complete"
Evaluate the job with ID "job1" and return immediately:
$ nomad job eval -detach job1 Created eval ID: "4947e728"
Evaluate the job with ID "job1", and reschedule any eligible failed allocations:
$ nomad job eval -force-reschedule job1 ==> Monitoring evaluation "0f3bc0f3" Evaluation triggered by job "test" Evaluation within deployment: "51baf5c8" Evaluation status changed: "pending" -> "complete" ==> Evaluation "0f3bc0f3" finished with status "complete"
