Autonomy IDOL Server Command Help

Autonomy IDOL help is pretty hard to find on-line so here are a few examples

Commands are normally issued via http and specify the IDOL server, port and command to be run. Typically an XML response is returned.

These commands can be run and the results viewed in Internet Explorer (or presumably other browsers) assuming the logged on account has the required permissions to access the Autonomy IDOL server.

An example to return the status of the IDOL service might be:

  • http://12.3.4.56:9000/action=GetStatus

An alternative command to get the status of an Indexer Service might be:

  • http://12.3.4.56:9000/action=IndexerGetStatus

The IndexerGetStatus command returns an XML stream as below:
