Arguments

PLUGIN

Pure Storage FlashArray plugin name.

Options

-h | --help

Can be used with any command or subcommand to display a brief syntax description.

--host

The target host on which to install the plugin.

--reinstall

If the plugin is already installed, use the --reinstall option to overwrite (upgrade) it.

--user

User name with which to log in to the target host.

Options that control display format:

--csv

Lists information in comma-separated value (CSV) format. The --csv output can be used for scripting purposes and imported into spreadsheet programs.

--notitle

Lists information without column titles.

--nvp

Lists information in name-value pair (NVP) format, in the form ITEMNAME=VALUE. Argument names and information items are displayed flush left. The --nvp output is designed both for convenient viewing of what might otherwise be wide listings, and for parsing individual items for scripting purposes.

--page

Turns on interactive paging.

--raw

Displays the unformatted version of column titles and data. For example, in the purearray monitor output, the unformatted version of column title us/op (read) is usec_per_read_op. The --raw output is used to sort and filter list results.

Description

The pureplugin check command checks the plugin version that is currently installed on the target host. Values must be specified for the --host and --user options. If the plugin is not installed, the version displays a dash.

The pureplugin install command installs the specified plugin. Values must be specified for the --host and --user options. If the plugin is already installed, use --reinstall to overwrite (upgrade) it.

The pureplugin list command displays a list of plugins on the array that can be installed on the target host. Use --csv to display the output as a comma-separated list of values. Use --nvp to display the output as name-value pairs. Use --notitle to display the output without column titles. To display a list of specific plugins, type the list of plugin names at the end of the command.

The pureplugin uninstall command uninstalls the specified plugin. Values must be specified for the --host and --user options.
