Client command-line tools

Some command line utilities are available as an optional add-on with the C client library. These tools provide quick and common access to cluster operations without requiring you to write code.

The C library contains several command line tools in its source repository. When distributed in binary form, they are available as an add-on package on Linux (libcouchbase2-bin). They come bundled with the default packages on OS X and Windows.

The C client tools are distinct from the Couchbase Server command-line tools that are available with the server installation

The tools use the C SDK internally and thus function similarly in many respects to other libraries built on top of the C SDK. The full reference documentation is available in the API reference in HTML format and as standard Unix man pages (where applicable).
