» Command: job periodic force

The job periodic force command is used to force the evaluation of a periodic job.

» Usage

nomad job periodic force [options] <job id>

The job periodic force command requires a single argument, specifying the ID of the job. This job must be a periodic job. This is used to immediately run a periodic job, even if it violates the job's prohibit_overlap setting.

By default, on successful job submission the command will enter an interactive monitor and display log information detailing the scheduling decisions and placement information for the forced evaluation. The monitor will exit after scheduling has finished or failed.

» 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.

» Run Options

  • -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

Force the evaluation of the job example, monitoring placement:

$ nomad job periodic force example
==> Monitoring evaluation "54b2d6d9"
    Evaluation triggered by job "example/periodic-1555094493"
    Allocation "637aee17" created: node "a35ab8fc", group "cache"
    Allocation "637aee17" status changed: "pending" -> "running" (Tasks are running)
    Evaluation status changed: "pending" -> "complete"
==> Evaluation "54b2d6d9" finished with status "complete"

Force the evaluation of the job example and return immediately:

$ nomad job periodic force -detach example
Force periodic successful
Evaluation ID: 0865fbf3-30de-5f53-0811-821e73e63178
