CodeQL documentation

database bundle

Synopsis

codeql database bundle --output=<output> [--mode=<mode>] <options>... [--] <database>

Description

Create a relocatable archive of a CodeQL database.

A command that zips up the useful parts of the database. This will only include the mandatory components, unless the user specifically requests that results, logs, TRAP, or similar should be included.

Options

<database>

[Mandatory] Path to the CodeQL database to bundle.

-o, --output=<output>

[Mandatory] The output file, typically with the extension “.zip”.

--include-results

Include any precomputed query results in the bundle.

--include-uncompressed-source

Include an uncompressed version of the source archive directory. This is necessary for legacy CodeQL plugins (like CodeQL for Eclipse).

--name=<name>

The name of the top-level directory in the bundle. If not given, it defaults to the name of the database directory.

Low-level dataset cleanup options

--max-disk-cache=<MB>

Set the maximum amount of space that the disk cache for intermediate query results can use.

If this size is not configured explicitly, the evaluator will try to use a “reasonable” amount of cache space, based on the size of the dataset and the complexity of the queries. Explicitly setting a higher limit than this default usage will enable additional caching which can speed up later queries.

--min-disk-free=<MB>

[Advanced] Set target amount of free space on file system.

If --max-disk-cache is not given, the evaluator will try hard to curtail disk cache usage if the free space on the file system drops below this value.

--min-disk-free-pct=<pct>

[Advanced] Set target fraction of free space on file system.

If --max-disk-cache is not given, the evaluator will try hard to curtail disk cache usage if the free space on the file system drops below this percentage.

-m, --mode=<mode>

Select how aggressively to trim the cache. Choices include:

brutal: Remove the entire cache, trimming down to the state of a freshly extracted dataset

normal (default): Trim everything except explicitly “cached” predicates.

light: Simply make sure the defined size limits for the disk cache are observed, deleting as many intermediates as necessary.

--cleanup-upgrade-backups

Delete any backup directories resulting from database upgrades.

--[no-]finalize-dataset

Finalize this dataset, making further attempts to import data into it fail. Passing this option allows some additional on-disk state to be deleted, but at the cost of sacrificing the ability to extend the dataset later.

Common options

-h, --help

Show this help text.

-J=<opt>

[Advanced] Give option to the JVM running the command.

(Beware that options containing spaces will not be handled correctly.)

-v, --verbose

Incrementally increase the number of progress messages printed.

-q, --quiet

Incrementally decrease the number of progress messages printed.

--verbosity=<level>

[Advanced] Explicitly set the verbosity level to one of errors, warnings, progress, progress+, progress++, progress+++. Overrides -v and -q.

--logdir=<dir>

[Advanced] Write detailed logs to one or more files in the given directory, with generated names that include timestamps and the name of the running subcommand.

(To write a log file with a name you have full control over, instead give --log-to-stderr and redirect stderr as desired.)
