MultiTool is a command-line based tool for carrying out administrative actions in the system. These include:

There are also some options that are only likely to be of use to Jiglu engineers in diagnosing problems.

To start MultiTool run the file:


This will connect to the default Jiglu server on the current host and then prompt you for your username, password and the system administrator password. You can also supply this information on the command line:

/opt/jiglu/bin/multitool host port username password administrator-password

The host will normally be localhost and the port 17001. These can be changed if, for example, you are running multiple Jiglu servers on the same machine. Note that if you supply the password and administrator password on the command line these will go into the shell history, which is not good practice for security.
