List origin IDs from database.


scorgls lists all available origin IDs within a given time range to stdout. Origins are fetched from database or read from a SCML file.

Similarly, use scevtls for listing all event IDs. In extension to scorgls and scevtls scquery can search for parameters based on complex custom queries.


  • Print all origin IDs for the complete year 2012.

    scorgls -d mysql://sysop:sysop@localhost/seiscomp \
            --begin "2012-01-01 00:00:00" \
            --end "2013-01-01 00:00:00"
  • Print the IDs of all origins provided with the XML file:

    scevtls -i origins.xml
