This part of the project is currently being built. Documentation will likely change significantly as the software evolves.


Use this command to run the publication server with two example clients:

./target/debug/krilld -c ./data/krill.conf

The server should start on localhost and port 3000. If you want to use a different configuration, please review the config file (./defaults/krill.conf). Alternatively, you can use the -c option to specify another config file.

Command Line Interface

There is a command line interface (CLI) shipping with Krill for Krill admin tasks. This CLI provides a simple wrapper around the API. It does not use any back doors. It may be more convenient that calling the API directly from your favourite scripting language, but maybe even more importantly: it allows us to set up integration and regression testing when building this software.

The binary is built as part of the normal ‘cargo build’ process, and can be used by running:

./target/debug krill_admin

To get an overview of all supported options run:

./target/debug krill_admin --help

Which will print something like this:

Krill admin client 0.2.0

        krillc [OPTIONS] --server <URI> --token <token-string> [SUBCOMMAND]

        -h, --help       Prints help information
        -V, --version    Prints version information

        -f, --format <type>           Specify the report format (none|json|text|xml).
                                      If left unspecified the format will match
                                                                  the corresponding server api response type.
        -s, --server <URI>            Specify the full URI to the krill server.
        -t, --token <token-string>    Specify the value of an admin token.
