exportcollector CLI command

Use this command to export data collectors to a .csv file.

If you want to use the output .csv file as the input for the importcollector CLI command and this output file contains the Monitor file over SSH and Monitor file over Windows Share data collectors, then you must edit the .csv file to replace the existing password with the actual password. This password is the one you need to connect to the target host from which you want to collect the data.

The exportcollector CLI command exports the .csv file using the internal name of the index block associated with a data collector while exporting.

To understand the syntax and examples, see:



Before you run the command, note the following points:

exportcollector -u <userName> [-s] -w <password> -d <hostName> -p <port> -f <absoluteCsvFilePath> [-l <locale>]
