tsm status

You can use the tsm status command to display the status of Tableau Server.


tsm status [global options]


-v, --verbose


Display status for every node in the Tableau Server cluster.

tsm status will return one of four potential statuses for a Tableau Server node:

  • RUNNING: The node is running without error statuses for any service.

  • DEGRADED: A primary service - such as the repository - is in an error state.

  • ERROR: One or more services is in an error state.

  • STOPPED: The node is stopped.

When running tsm status with the --verboseoption, TSM will return a status for each individual service. There are four status messages:

  • is running: The service is running.

  • status is unavailable: The status is not returned - such as when processes are starting up.

  • is in an error state: The process is running, but returning errors. This status indicates the process failed to install properly, or has not been configured.

  • is stopped: The process is stopped.

Global options

-h, --help


Show the command help.

-p, --password <password>

Required, along with -u or --username if no session is active.

Specify the password for the user specified in -u or --username.

If the password includes spaces or special characters, enclose it in quotes:

--password 'my password'

-s, --server https://<hostname>:8850


Use the specified address for Tableau Services Manager. The URL must start with https, include port 8850, and use the server name not the IP address. For example https://<tsm_hostname>:8850. If no server is specified, https://<localhost | dnsname>:8850 is assumed.



Use this flag to trust the self-signed certificate on the TSM controller. For more information about certificate trust and CLI connections, see Connecting TSM clients.

-u, --username <user>

Required if no session is active, along with -p or --password.

Specify a user account. If you do not include this option, the command is run using credentials you signed in with.
