Advanced grep in your alerts and dashboards.

wavectl allows users to execute regular expression searches on alerts and dashboards. Using the resource options, the user can specify fields and a regular expression to match for each field. wavectl will process only resources that satisfy all specified regular expressions. For show command, only the matched alerts/dashboards will be displayed, for push only the matching ones will be written to Wavefront, and so on.

For example: show alerts that have "Kubernetes" and "Utilization" in their names:

  $ wavectl show alert --name "Kubernetes.*Utilization"
  ID               NAME                                                                                     STATUS                              SEVERITY    
  1523082347619    Kubernetes - Node Network Utilization - HIGH (Prod)                                      CHECKING                            WARN      
  1523082347824    Kubernetes - Node Cpu Utilization - HIGH (Prod)                                          CHECKING                            WARN      
  1523082348005    Kubernetes - Node Memory Swap Utilization - HIGH (Prod)                                  SNOOZED                             WARN

The --match parameter can be used to search anywhere in the json representation of an alert or a dashboard rather than in known key value pairs.

For example: Show the dashboards that use metrics from the live environment

  $ wavectl show dashboard --match "env=live"
  ID                      NAME                                                        DESCRIPTION

wavectl uses python standard library's regular expression module. Any valid python regular expression can be specified for the resource options.
