Table of Contents

Arguments

  • The data source configuration file must be specified, and must be a filesystem path to an existing, readable and valid data source configuration file.

  • Other options (see below) will be passed directly to funnelback-dbgather.jar, and so will be identical to the options required there.

Function

dbgather.pl gathers documents from SQL databases, in a similar way as crawl.pl runs a gather for a web data source. With a data source configuration argument and no other arguments, dbgather.pl will use settings from the data source configuration file to run an update over the specified database. See database data sources for more information.

Optional arguments are described below.
