What is streaming?
Don't worry, the Bolt team isn't releasing yet another streaming service.
When you run commands and scripts on targets, Bolt gives you the option of streaming the output from these commands and scripts as they are executed on the targets. This lets you see what is happening on every target you run the action on in near real-time, making it easier to debug problems with commands and scripts or to see where in the process of executing an action the target is.
How do I enable streaming?
There are two ways to enable streaming in Bolt. You can either enable it from the command line for a single run with the --stream command-line option, or you can enable it permanently in your configuration with the stream setting. Whenever Bolt streams output, it will print output from
stderr in the order it receives it from each target, and will prepend each line with the name of the target that it came from.
