The following buildbot sub-commands are intended for buildmaster administrators:
This creates a new directory and populates it with files that allow it to be used as a buildmaster's base directory.
You will usually want to use the
-r option to create a relocatable
buildbot.tac. This allows you to move the master directory without
editing this file.
buildbot create-master -r BASEDIR
This creates a new directory and populates it with files that let it be used as a buildslave's base directory. You must provide several arguments, which are used to create the initial buildbot.tac file.
-r option is advisable here, just like for
buildbot create-slave -r BASEDIR MASTERHOST:PORT SLAVENAME PASSWORD
This starts a buildmaster or buildslave which was already created in the given base directory. The daemon is launched in the background, with events logged to a file named twistd.log.
buildbot start BASEDIR
This terminates the daemon (either buildmaster or buildslave) running in the given directory.
buildbot stop BASEDIR
This sends a SIGHUP to the buildmaster running in the given directory, which causes it to re-read its master.cfg file.
buildbot sighup BASEDIR
