What are server commands?

Server commands are those you can type on the console to make the server do various things.

Commands can be divided up into those that apply to the simulator (simulator commands) and those that apply to grid services (service commands).

On a standalone system, both simulator and service commands will be available on the single standalone system console.

On a grid architecture, the simulator commands will be available on the simulators, whilst the service commands will be available on the ROBUST console.

Disclaimer: some commands may not work as expected, some may not work at all, and there is a chance that you may even lose all your settings/contents. This summary quickly goes out of date - the best place to find commands is by typing "help" on the region console.

Except where noted, this list should be accurate for OpenSimulator 0.7.1 onwards.

Commands

General Server Commands

These commands are available in both simulator and robust consoles.

General

  • command-script [scriptfile] - Runs a command script containing console commands.
  • quit - shutdown the server.
  • show info - show server information (version and startup path). Before OpenSimulator 0.7.5 this is only available on the simulator console.
  • show uptime - show server startup time and uptime. Before OpenSimulator 0.7.5 this is only available on the simulator console.
  • show version - show server version. Before OpenSimulator 0.7.5 this is only available on the simulator console.
  • shutdown - synonym for quit
  • get log level - In OpenSimulator 0.7.5 and later, print the current console logging level. In OpenSimulator 0.7.4 and earlier please use the "set log level" command instead without a level parameter.
  • set log level [level] - change the console logging level only. For example, off or debug. See Logging for more information. In OpenSimulator 0.7.4 and earlier, if called without the level argument prints the current level. In OpenSimulator 0.7.5 and later please use the "get log level" command instead. Only available on ROBUST console from OpenSimulator 0.7.5.

Debug

  • debug http [<level>] - Turn on/off extra logging for HTTP request debugging. Only available on robust console from commit 94517c8 (dev code post 0.7.3.1). In current development code (for OpenSimulator 0.7.5) this is debug http in|out|all [<level>] since outbound HTTP messages can also now be logged (this was only possible for inbound before). For more information on this command, see Debugging.
  • debug threadpool level <level> - Turn on/off logging of activity in the main threadpool. For more information, see General-Purpose Threadpool.

Simulator Commands

General

  • change region <region name> - subsequent commands apply only to the specified region. If region name is "root" then all regions are selected
  • debug packet <level> - Turn on packet debugging, where OpenSimulator prints out summaries of incoming and outgoing packets for viewers, depending on the level set
  • emergency-monitoring - turn emergency debugging monitoring mode on or off.
  • help [<command>] - Get general command list or more detailed help on a specific command or set of commands
  • link-mapping - Set a local grid co-ordinate to link to a remote hypergrid
  • link-region - Link a HyperGrid region. Not sure how this differs from link-mapping
  • modules list - List modules
  • modules load <name> - Load a module
  • modules unload <name> - Unload a module
  • monitor report - Returns a variety of statistics about the current region and/or simulator
  • set terrain heights <corner> <min> <max> [<x>] [<y>] - Sets the terrain texture heights on corner #<corner> to <min>/<max>, if <x> or <y> are specified, it will only set it on regions with a matching coordinate. Specify -1 in <x> or <y> to wildcard that coordinate. Corner # SW = 0, NW = 1, SE = 2, NE = 3.
  • set terrain texture <number> <uuid> [<x>] [<y>] - Sets the terrain <number> to <uuid>, if <x> or <y> are specified, it will only set it on regions with a matching coordinate. Specify -1 in <x> or <y> to wildcard that coordinate.
  • show caps - show all registered capabilities URLs
NOTE: In OpenSimulator 0.7.1, "show capabilities" is shown as a result for help command, but actually only "show caps" will be accepted. (#5467)
  • show circuits - Show agent circuit data
  • show connections - show connections data
  • show http-handlers - show all registered http handlers
  • show hyperlinks - list hg regions
  • show modules - show module data
  • show pending-objects - show number of objects in the pending queues of all viewers
  • show pqueues [full] - show priority queue data for each client. Without the 'full' option, only root agents are shown. With the 'full' option child agents are also shown.
  • show queues - Show queue data for agent connections.
  • show threads - shows the persistent threads registered with the system. Does not include threadpool threads.
  • show throttles [full] - Show throttle data for each client connection, and the maximum allowed for each connection by the server. Without the 'full' option, only root agents are shown. With the 'full' option child agents are also shown.
  • unlink-region <local name> - unlink a hypergrid region

Appearance Commands

  • appearance show - Show information about avatar appearance. Currently just checks whether the baked texture is "OK" or "corrupt". Still in development. Only exists in development code at the moment.

Archive Commands

  • load iar <first> <last> <inventory path> <password> [<archive path>] - Load user inventory archive. See Inventory Archives.
  • load oar [filename] - load an OpenSimulator archive. This entirely replaces the current region. Default filename is region.oar. See OpenSim Archives.
  • load xml [-newIDs [<x> <y> <z>]] - Load a region's data from XML format (0.7.*: DEPRECATED and may be REMOVED soon. Use "load xml2" instead)
those xml are the result of the export save or *export save-all
  • load xml2 [filename] - optional parameters not supported for XML2 format as at 1-Jul-2008
  • save iar <first> <last> <inventory path> <password> [<archive path>] - Save user inventory archive. See Inventory Archives
  • save oar [filename] - save the current region to an OpenSimulator archive. Default filename is region.oar. See OpenSim Archives.

Asset Commands

The fcache commands only currently appearance if you are using the fcache asset cache. This is the default on OpenSimulator.

  • j2k decode <ID> - Do JPEG2000 decoding of an asset.

Config Commands

  • config get [<section>] [<key>] - Get the current configuration, either for a particular key, a particular section or the whole config.
  • config save <path> - Save the current configuration to a file.
  • config set <section> <key> - Set a particular configuration value. On the whole, this is useless since neither OpenSimulator nor modules dynamically reload config values.
  • config show [<section>] [<key>] - Synonym for 'config get'

Land Commands

  • land show - Shows all parcels on the current region.

Map Commands

  • export-map [<path>] - Save an image of the world map (default name is exportmap.jpg)
  • generate map - Regenerates and stores map tile. Only in development code post 0.7.6.

  • delete object creator <UUID> - Delete a scene object by creator
  • delete object name [--regex] <name> - Delete a scene object by name.
  • delete object outside - Delete all scene objects outside region boundaries. This is currently if z < 0 or z > 10000. Object outside these bounds have been known to cause issues with OpenSimulator's use of some physics engines (such as the Open Dynamics Engine).
  • delete object owner <UUID> - Delete a scene object by owner
  • delete object uuid <UUID> - Delete a scene object by uuid. In current dev code (post 0.7.5) this is "show object id" and also allows a local ID.

  • show part name [--regex] <name> - Show details of scene object parts with the given name.
  • show part uuid <UUID> - Show details of a scene object parts with the given UUID. In current dev code (post 0.7.5) this is "show object id" and also allows a local ID.

Estate Commands

  • reload estate - reload estate data

Region Commands

  • change region <region name> - subsequent commands apply only to the specified region. If region name is "root" then all regions are selected
  • create region [name] [filename] - Create a new region

  • region restart abort [<message>] - Abort a scheduled region restart, with an optional message
  • region restart bluebox <message> <delta seconds>+ - Schedule a region restart. If one delta is given then the region is restarted in delta seconds time. A time to restart is sent to users in the region as a dismissable bluebox notice. If multiple deltas are given then a notice is sent when we reach each delta.
  • region restart notice <message> <delta seconds>+ - Schedule a region restart. Same as above except showing a transient notice instead of a dismissable bluebox.
  • region set - Post OpenSimulator 0.8.0.*. Set certain region parameters. Currently, can set
    • agent-limit - The current avatar limit for the region. More usually this is set via the region/estate dialog in a typical viewer. This persists over simulator restarts.

  • set region flags <Region name> <flags> - Set database flags for region
  • show neighbours - Shows the local regions' neighbours

Details of Hypergrid Commands

For full details and explanations of Hypergrid Commands, see the Linking Regions sections of the Installing and Running Hypergrid page.

show hyperlinks

This command will show a list of all hypergrid linked regions.

link-region <Xloc> <Yloc> <host> <port> <location-name>

  • Use Xloc and Yloc that make sense to your world, i.e. close to your regions, but not adjacent.
  • replace osl2.nac.uci.edu and 9006 with the domain name / ip address and the port of the region you want to link to

E.g. link-region 8998 8998 osl2.nac.uci.edu 9006 OSGrid Gateway

unlink-region <local region name>

This command will unlink the specified hypergrid linked region - be sure to use the exact local name as reported by the "show hyperlinks" command.

Important Note

Due to a viewer bug, you can only TP between regions that are no more than 4096 cells apart in any dimension. What this means in practice is that if you want to link to OSGrid, you must have your own regions reachable from the (10,000; 10,000) point on the map, which is where OSGrid is centered. Place your regions somewhere in the 8,000s or the 12,000s.

link-mapping
