generate log-summary

Synopsis

codeql generate log-summary <options>... -- <input> <result>

Description

[Advanced] Create a summary of a structured log file.

This command creates a summary of a structured JSON evaluator event log. The output of this command aims to be more stable across different versions of the CLI than the log files themselves. Thus, when implementing a script that uses output from the logs, it is strongly recommended to run this command and use its output rather than using the event logs directly.

Options

<input>

[Mandatory] Path to the event log file to produce a summary of.

<result>

Path to the location to output the summarised log file to. If this omitted, then the summary will be output to stdout.

--minify-output

Where applicable, omit whitespace in the outputted summary. The result will be less human-readable but take up less memory. This option only has an effect for some output formats.

--utc

[Advanced] Certain timestamps in the summaries produced by this command may use the local timezone of the machine they are running on. Enabling this flag forces all timestamps to be UTC.

--format=<format>

Control the format of the output produced.

predicates (default): Produce a summary of the computation performed for each predicate. This will be a stream of JSON objects separated either by two newline characters (by default) or one if the --minify-output option is passed.

text: Produce a human-readable summary of the evaluation run.

overall: Produce a JSON file containing some overall information about the evaluation run, including some summary statistics and information about the most time-consuming evaluations that were performed.

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.)
