Command reference


Pyrocko Squirrel - Prompt seismological data access with a fluffy tail.

usage: squirrel [--help] [--loglevel LEVEL] [--progress DEST] SUBCOMMAND ...

This is squirrel, a command-line front-end to the Squirrel data access infrastructure. The Squirrel infrastructure offers meta-data caching, blazingly fast data lookup for large datasets and transparent online data download to applications building on it.

In most cases, the Squirrel does its business discretely under the hood and does not require human interaction or awareness. However, using this tool, some aspects can be configured for the benefit of greater performance or convenience, including (1) using a separate (isolated, local) environment for a specific project, (2) using named selections to speed up access to very large datasets, (3), pre-scanning/indexing of file collections. It can also be used to inspect various aspects of a data collection.

This tool’s functionality is available through several subcommands. Run squirrel SUBCOMMAND --help to get further help.
