» Command: job status

The job status command displays status information for a job.

» Usage

nomad job status [options] [job]

This command accepts an optional job ID or prefix as the sole argument. If there is an exact match based on the provided job ID or prefix, then information about the specific job is queried and displayed. Otherwise, a list of matching jobs and information will be displayed.

If the ID is omitted, the command lists out all of the existing jobs and a few of the most useful status fields for each. As of Nomad 0.7.1, alloc status also shows allocation modification time in addition to create time. When the -verbose flag is not set, allocation creation and modify times are shown in a shortened relative time format like 5m ago.

» 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.

» Status Options

  • -all-allocs: Display all allocations matching the job ID, even those from an older instance of the job.

  • -evals: Display the evaluations associated with the job.

  • -short: Display short output. Used only when a single node is being queried. Drops verbose node allocation data from the output.

  • -verbose: Show full information. Allocation create and modify times are shown in yyyy/mm/dd hh:mm:ss format.
