» Command: job eval

The job eval command is used to force an evaluation of a job, given the job ID.

» Usage

nomad job eval [options] <job_id>

The job eval command requires a single argument, specifying the job ID to evaluate. If there is an exact match based on the provided job ID, then the job will be evaluated, forcing a scheduler run.

» General Options

  • -address=<addr>: The address of the Nomad server. Overrides the NOMAD_ADDR environment variable if set. Defaults to http://127.0.0.1:4646.

  • -region=<region>: The region of the Nomad server to forward commands to. Overrides the NOMAD_REGION environment variable if set. Defaults to the Agent's local region.

  • -no-color: Disables colored command output. Alternatively, NOMAD_CLI_NO_COLOR may be set.

  • -ca-cert=<path>: Path to a PEM encoded CA cert file to use to verify the Nomad server SSL certificate. Overrides the NOMAD_CACERT environment variable if set.

  • -ca-path=<path>: Path to a directory of PEM encoded CA cert files to verify the Nomad server SSL certificate. If both -ca-cert and -ca-path are specified, -ca-cert is used. Overrides the NOMAD_CAPATH environment variable if set.

  • -client-cert=<path>: Path to a PEM encoded client certificate for TLS authentication to the Nomad server. Must also specify -client-key. Overrides the NOMAD_CLIENT_CERT environment variable if set.

  • -client-key=<path>: Path to an unencrypted PEM encoded private key matching the client certificate from -client-cert. Overrides the NOMAD_CLIENT_KEY environment variable if set.

  • -tls-skip-verify: Do not verify TLS certificate. This is highly not recommended. Verification will also be skipped if NOMAD_SKIP_VERIFY is set.

  • -token: The SecretID of an ACL token to use to authenticate API requests with. Overrides the NOMAD_TOKEN environment variable if set.

» Eval Options

  • -force-reschedule: force-reschedule is used to force placement of failed allocations. If this is set, failed allocations that are past their reschedule limit, and those that are scheduled to be replaced at a future time are placed immediately. This option only places failed allocations if the task group has rescheduling enabled.

  • -detach: Return immediately instead of monitoring. A new evaluation ID will be output, which can be used to examine the evaluation using the eval status command

  • -verbose: Show full information.

» Examples

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"
