A command-line app for submitting jobs to Rescale
The Rescale Client App or Rescale Command Line Interface (CLI) is a Java-based client application for submitting and managing jobs to Rescale without having to explicitly know the Rescale API. Aside from providing a simple command line utility for the Rescale API, it also integrates the multi-threaded transfer library for uploading files directly to the Rescale Cloud Storage. This also handles any authentication related to uploading/downloading files from the Rescale Data Store. The App has several main functions:
- Submit: submitting a job in the current working directory to Rescale
- Status: obtaining the status of a running job on Rescale
- Sync: syncing output files of jobs to your hard drive
- Retrieve Info: retrieve metadata from the Rescale API
This section describes the steps needed to set up the Rescale CLI App on your local workstation. Rescale CLI version 1.1.0 and higher does not require a separate Java install. The Java RTE is packaged into the installation package for the CLI.
