DESCRIPTION

The Proxmox VE management tool (pvesh) allows to directly invoke API function, without using the REST/HTTPS server.

Note Only root is allowed to do that.

FORMAT_OPTIONS

It is possible to specify the output format using the --outout-format parameter. The default format text uses ASCII-art to draw nice borders around tables. It additionally transforms some values into human-readable text, for example:

  • Unix epoch is displayed as ISO 8601 date string.

  • Durations are displayed as week/day/hour/miniute/secound count, i.e 1d 5h.

  • Byte sizes value include units (B, KiB, MiB, GiB, TiB, PiB).

  • Fractions are display as percentage, i.e. 1.0 is displayed as 100%.

You can also completely suppress output using option --quiet.

--human-readable <boolean> (default = 1)

Call output rendering functions to produce human readable text.

--noborder <boolean> (default = 1)

Do not draw borders (for text format).

--noheader <boolean> (default = 1)

Do not show column headers (for text format).

--output-format <json | json-pretty | text | yaml> (default = text)

Output format.

--quiet <boolean>

Suppress printing results.
