Status Option (Distributed Replay Administration Tool)

The Microsoft SQL Server Distributed Replay administration tool, DReplay.exe, is a command-line tool that you can use to communicate with the distributed replay controller. This topic describes the status command-line option and corresponding syntax.

The status option queries the controller and displays the current status.

Topic link icon For more information about the syntax conventions that are used with the administration tool syntax, see Transact-SQL Syntax Conventions (Transact-SQL).


dreplay status [-m controller] [-f status_interval]  


-m controller
Specifies the computer name of the controller. You can use "localhost" or "." to refer to the local computer.

If the -m parameter is not specified, the local computer is used.

-f status_interval
Specifies the frequency (in seconds) at which to display the status.

If the -f parameter is not specified, the default interval is 30 seconds.


In the following example, the current status is displayed every 60 seconds. The value localhost indicates that the controller service is running on the same computer as the administration tool.

dreplay status –m localhost -f 60  


You must run the administration tool as an interactive user, as either a local user or a domain user account. To use a local user account, the administration tool and controller must be running on the same computer.
