cpuse via CLI - "extended view"

Hello guys,

 

Just a small question that came into my mind when I had to install the latest jumbo take on one of my machines. Is it possible to - somehow - "extend" the length of the CLI output of cpuse? What I mean with that is, that the commands "installer show/verify/whatever <tab>" have a locked length regarding their output. Let's for example take a look at the latest jumbo take:

 

 

 

hostnameXYZ> installer verify

**  ************************************************************************* **
Num Display name                                      Type
1   Check Point CPinfo build 191 for R80.20           Hotfix
2   R80.20 Gaia 3.10 Jumbo Hotfix Accumulator for
        Security Management General availability (    Hotfix

(...)

**  ************************************************************************* **
**                                  Majors                                    **
**  ************************************************************************* **
Num Display name                                      Type
9   R80.20.M2 Fresh Install and Upgrade for
        Security Management                           Major Version
10  R80.20 Fresh Install and Upgrade for Security
        Management                                    Major Version
11  R80.30 Fresh Install and Upgrade for Security
        Management                                    Major Version

 

 

 

Here you can see that package number 2 is clearly cut in the column "display name" as it only shows "R80.20 Gaia 3.10 Jumbo Hotfix Accumulator for Security Management General availability (" - the take itself is not visible at all. If you have more than one package in the list and you can't determine the name by this column you still have the option to use the web ui - however what about systems where this is not possible (e.g. VSX)? Is there any option to "enlarge" this column or to just display more details for the packages?

 

Thanks in advance and best regards.

Maik

Re: cpuse via CLI - "extended view"

This is not anything we as users can do, development needs to adjust the max width in the installer program itself. Currently it is fixed to the old 80 columns value, that has been there since terminals where 24x80 characters.

Re: cpuse via CLI - "extended view"

Hm that's what I assumed.

@PhoneBoy Do you know whether something is planned for the future? Should be kinda easy to implement such a change. 🙂

For the meantime - how should someone proceed without being able to access a web ui.

Re: cpuse via CLI - "extended view"

Not easy, but still possible:

GW-R80.20> installer verify 

**  ************************************************************************* **

**                                   HFAs                                     **

**  ************************************************************************* **

Num Display name                                      Type                     

1   Check_Point_SmartConsole_R80_30_jumbo_HF_B36_W                             

       in                                             HFA                      

**  ************************************************************************* **

 

Expert@GW-R80.20> clish -c "installer verify 1"  >> /var/tmp/my.txt

 

Now in /var/tmp/my.txt:

Info: Initiating verify of Check_Point_SmartConsole_R80_30_jumbo_HF_B36_Win.tgz...
Interactive mode is enabled. Press CTRL + C to exit (this will not stop the operation)
Validating Install: 0% Validating Install: 0% Validating Install: 0% Validating Install: 0% Validating Install: 0%

Result: Installation is allowed.

Re: cpuse via CLI - "extended view"

While you are at it, 'show installer packages all/available-for-download' has the same problem, even if you redirect it to a file.
