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 dataset measure --output=<file> [--threads=<num>] <options>... -- <dataset>
[Plumbing] Collect statistics about the relations in a particular dataset.
This command is typically only used when developing a CodeQL extractor, after a change that affects the database schema and which therefore needs to have an accompanying change to the statistics used by the query optimizer.
[Mandatory] Path to the raw QL dataset to measure.
[Mandatory] The output file to which statistics should be written, typically with a '.dbscheme.stats' extension.
The number of concurrent threads to use.
Defaults to 1. You can pass 0 to use one thread per core on the machine, or -N to leave N cores unused (except still use at least one thread).
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.
