  • -n: Dry-run option. Shows the input files that will be processed and the output files that will be created without actually doing anything.
  • -q: Turns on quiet mode which suppresses progress reporting. Use this option when processing large files since progress reporting slows down the program a little bit.
  • -u Username: Login to SQL Server with the specified username. If this option is not used, Windows Authentication is used for connecting to SQL Server.
  • -p Password: Password for connecting to SQL Server when using SQL Server Authentication.
  • -U: Update Feed option. If data from any of the specified input file/URL is found in the database, it is updated with the latest data from the input file/url. The data is NOT updated if the contents of the input file have not changed from the last time it was updated.
  • -U -a: Update All Feeds option. All documents loaded into the database are checked for changes and reloaded. Useful as an automatic feed engine (for auto-update of XML feeds). With this option, input file/url arguments are not accepted.
