plookup - Request the value of one or more keys


plookup [ options ] [ keys ]


plookup will request the value of the specified keys. This requires that plookup connect to an appropriate server - the tool will automatically attempt to do so, but options are provided to assist its search or to direct it to a specific server. Reserved keys must be provided in their string form - e.g., “pmix.job.term.status” as opposed to the key’s name of “PMIX_JOB_TERM_STATUS”.


plookup supports the following options:

-h|--help                This help message
-p|--pid <arg0>          Specify starter pid
-t|--timeout             Max number of seconds to wait for data to become

available -v|--verbose Be Verbose -w|--wait Wait for data to be available
