This content describes the most recent release of the CodeQL CLI. For more information about this release, see https://github.com/github/codeql-cli-binaries/releases.
To see details of the options available for this command in an earlier release, run the command with the
--help option in your terminal.
codeql resolve ram [--ram=<MB>] <options>...
[Deep plumbing] Prepare RAM options.
This deep plumbing command prepares appropriate command-line options to start a subcommand that will execute a QL query evaluator. It knows appropriate heuristics for deciding whether to keep some of the configured memory outside the Java heap.
In particular, this should be used to find appropriate
--off-heap-ram options before staring a query server based on a
desired total RAM amount.
Select output format. Choices include:
lines (default): Print command-line arguments on one line each.
json: Print them as a JSON array.
Set total amount of RAM the query evaluator should be allowed to use.
Show this help text.
[Advanced] Give option to the JVM running the command.
(Beware that options containing spaces will not be handled correctly.)
Incrementally increase the number of progress messages printed.
Incrementally decrease the number of progress messages printed.
[Advanced] Explicitly set the verbosity level to one of errors,
warnings, progress, progress+, progress++, progress+++. Overrides
[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
--log-to-stderr and redirect stderr as desired.)
[Advanced] Controls the location of cached data on disk that will
persist between several runs of the CLI, such as downloaded QL packs and
compiled query plans. If not set explicitly, this defaults to a
.codeql in the user's home directory; it will be
created if it doesn't already exist.
