vzpkg fetch

This command is used to download packages included in the corresponding OS EZ template or their updates from the remote repository to the vzpkg local cache on the Hardware Node and to prepare them for the installation on the Node. It has the following syntax:

vzpkg fetch [options] <OS_template>

You can pass the following options to vzpkg fetch:

Option

Description

-O, --os

Download packages/updates for the specified EZ OS template.

-A, --app

Download packages/updates for EZ application templates used with the EZ specified OS template.

-C, --cache

Makes the vzpkg fetch command look for the metadata in the vzpkg local cache only. You can omit this parameter if the elapsed time from the last vzpkg cache update does not exceed the value of the METADATA_EXPIRE parameter specified in the /etc/vztt/vztt.conf file.

-r, --remote

If the elapsed time from the last vzpkg cache update does not exceed the value of the METADATA_EXPIRE parameter specified in the /etc/vztt/vztt.conf file, you should use this option to make vzpkg fetch look for the OS EZ template metadata in the remote repositories set for handling the corresponding EZ template.

-f, --force

Forces the process of downloading packages and/or their updates to the Hardware Node.

-d, --debug
<
num>

Sets the debugging level to one of the specified values (from 0 to 10). 10 is the highest debug level and 0 sets the debug level to its minimal value.

-q, --quiet

Disables logging to the screen and to the log file.

You can make vzpkg fetch run as a cron job (e.g. nightly) checking for available packages or packages updates for your EZ templates and keeping them in the local cache. Having all the necessary packages in the vzpkg local cache can greatly speed up the execution of the vzpkg install, vzpkg update, or vzpkg create cache commands since the packages are available locally and there is no need to check for them in the corresponding remote repositories.
