Go Reference


The gomote command is a client for the Go builder infrastructure.



The gomote command is a client for the Go builder infrastructure. It's a remote control for remote Go builder machines.

See https://golang.org/wiki/Gomote


gomote [global-flags] cmd [cmd-flags]

For example,
$ gomote create openbsd-amd64-60
$ gomote push user-username-openbsd-amd64-60-0
$ gomote run user-username-openbsd-amd64-60-0 go/src/make.bash
$ gomote run user-username-openbsd-amd64-60-0 go/bin/go test -v -short os

To list the subcommands, run "gomote" without arguments:


  create     create a buildlet; with no args, list types of buildlets
  destroy    destroy a buildlet
  gettar     extract a tar.gz from a buildlet
  list       list active buildlets
  ls         list the contents of a directory on a buildlet
  ping       test whether a buildlet is alive and reachable
  push       sync your GOROOT directory to the buildlet
  put        put files on a buildlet
  put14      put Go 1.4 in place
  puttar     extract a tar.gz to a buildlet
  rm         delete files or directories
  rdp        RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol) to a Windows buildlet
  run        run a command on a buildlet
  ssh        ssh to a buildlet

To list all the builder types available, run "create" with no arguments:

$ gomote create
(list tons of buildlet types)

The "gomote run" command has many of its own flags:

$ gomote run -h
run usage: gomote run [run-opts] <instance> <cmd> [args...]
  -builderenv string
        Optional alternate builder to act like. Must share the same
        underlying buildlet host type, or it's an error. For
        instance, linux-amd64-race or linux-386-387 are compatible
        with linux-amd64, but openbsd-amd64 and openbsd-386 are
        different hosts.
        write debug info about the command's execution before it begins
  -dir string
        Directory to run from. Defaults to the directory of the
        command, or the work directory if -system is true.
  -e value
        Environment variable KEY=value. The -e flag may be repeated
        multiple times to add multiple things to the environment.
  -path string
        Comma-separated list of ExecOpts.Path elements. The special
        string 'EMPTY' means to run without any $PATH. The empty
        string (default) does not modify the $PATH. Otherwise, the
        following expansions apply: the string '$PATH' expands to
        the current PATH element(s), the substring '$WORKDIR'
        expands to the buildlet's temp workdir.
        run inside the system, and not inside the workdir; this is implicit if cmd starts with '/'

Debugging buildlets directly

Using "gomote create" contacts the build coordinator (farmer.golang.org) and requests that it create the buildlet on your behalf. All subsequent commands (such as "gomote run" or "gomote ls") then proxy your request via the coordinator. To access a buildlet directly (for example, when working on the buildlet code), you can skip the "gomote create" step and use the special builder name "<build-config-name>@ip[:port>", such as "windows-amd64-2008@".
