buildbot statuslog --master MASTERHOST:PORT
This command starts a simple text-based status client, one which just prints out a new line each time an event occurs on the buildmaster.
The --master option provides the location of the
buildbot.status.client.PBListener status port, used to deliver
build information to realtime status clients. The option is always in
the form of a string, with hostname and port number separated by a
HOSTNAME:PORTNUM). Note that this port is not the
same as the slaveport (although a future version may allow the same
port number to be used for both purposes). If you get an error message
to the effect of “Failure: twisted.cred.error.UnauthorizedLogin:”,
this may indicate that you are connecting to the slaveport rather than
The --master option can also be provided by the
masterstatus name in .buildbot/options (see .buildbot config directory).
