Command: job eval
job eval command is used to force an evaluation of a job, given the job
nomad job eval [options] <job_id>
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.
When ACLs are enabled, this command requires a token with the
capability for the job's namespace. The
list-jobs capability is required to
run the command with a job prefix instead of the exact job ID.
-address=<addr>: The address of the Nomad server. Overrides the
NOMAD_ADDRenvironment variable if set. Defaults to
-region=<region>: The region of the Nomad server to forward commands to. Overrides the
NOMAD_REGIONenvironment variable if set. Defaults to the Agent's local region.
-namespace=<namespace>: The target namespace for queries and actions bound to a namespace. Overrides the
NOMAD_NAMESPACEenvironment variable if set. If set to
'*', job and alloc subcommands query all namespaces authorized to user. Defaults to the "default" namespace.
-no-color: Disables colored command output. Alternatively,
NOMAD_CLI_NO_COLORmay be set. This option takes precedence over
-force-color: Forces colored command output. This can be used in cases where the usual terminal detection fails. Alternatively,
NOMAD_CLI_FORCE_COLORmay be set. This option has no effect if
-no-coloris also used.
-ca-cert=<path>: Path to a PEM encoded CA cert file to use to verify the Nomad server SSL certificate. Overrides the
NOMAD_CACERTenvironment 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-certis used. Overrides the
NOMAD_CAPATHenvironment 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_CERTenvironment 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_KEYenvironment variable if set.
-tls-server-name=<value>: The server name to use as the SNI host when connecting via TLS. Overrides the
NOMAD_TLS_SERVER_NAMEenvironment variable if set.
-tls-skip-verify: Do not verify TLS certificate. This is highly not recommended. Verification will also be skipped if
-token: The SecretID of an ACL token to use to authenticate API requests with. Overrides the
NOMAD_TOKENenvironment variable if set.
force-rescheduleis 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.
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"
