Tigon Tools

Tigon Command-Line Interface


The Command-Line Interface (CLI) provides methods to interact with a running Tigon instance from within a shell, similar to HBase shell or bash. It is automatically started once you start Tigon in Distributed Mode.

The executable should bring you into a shell, with this prompt:

tigon >

To list all of the available commands, enter help:

tigon > help

To list all Flows currently running in Tigon, use:

tigon > list

To stop the Flow prior to shutting down distributed mode, use:

tigon > delete <flow-name>

You can then exit the command-line interface either with quit or Control-C.
