List MemSQL Nodes on the local machine

  memsqlctl list-nodes [flags]

      --availability-group int                      Filter for online leaf nodes in the provided availability group
  -h, --help                                        Help for list-nodes
  -p, --process-state {running, stopped, unknown}   Show only nodes with the given process state (default Unspecified)
  -q, --quiet                                       Only output matching MemSQL IDs
  -r, --role {master, aggregator, leaf, unknown}    Show only nodes with the given role (default Unspecified)

Global Flags:
  -c, --config FILE_PATH                     Path to the memsqctl config file
      --default-install-dir DIRECTORY_PATH   Path to the default install directory
  -j, --json                                 Print output in JSON format

Nodes can optionally be filtered by process state and role.


To view nodes across the cluster, run show-leaves or show-aggregators from the host with a running master aggregator node.

This command is interactive unless you use either the --yes or --json flags to override interactive behavior.

The memsqlctl list-nodes command is equivalent to the memsql-admin list-nodes command.


The following is the standard output for the list-nodes command.

$ sudo memsqlctl list-nodes
| MemSQL ID  |    Role    | Port | Process State | Connectable? | Version | Recovery State | Availability Group |
| 994274A024 | Leaf       | 3307 | Running       | True         | 6.5.10  | Online         | 1                  |
