Working from Command Line
You can manage operation of Dr.Web for Linux from the command line with the help of a special command-line tool - drweb-ctl.
You can do the following actions from the command line:
•Start scanning file system objects including boot records
•Start updating virus databases
•View and change parameters of Dr.Web for Linux configuration
•View status of Dr.Web for Linux components and statistics on detected threats
•View quarantine and manage quarantined objects
•Connect to the central protection server or disconnect from it
User for Dr.Web for Linux management can have an effect only if Dr.Web for Linux service components are running (by default, they are automatically run on system startup).
The drweb-ctl tool supports auto-completion of commands for managing Dr.Web for Linux operation if this option is enabled in the used command shell. If the command shell does not allow auto-completion, you can configure this option. For that purpose, refer to the instruction manual for the used OS distribution.
