Argument

Input

Description

-a, --alert_filter

-b, --update_batch_size

Delimiter to insert between values in the export file. Defaults to comma ",".

-

Export the archived data to a file.

-y, --delay_time

Integer <number of milliseconds>

Length of the delay between each batch operation. Can be used to slow the speed of archiving to reduce load on the database. Default is 0.

-z, --id_batch_size

Integer <number of rows>
