P4V User Guide (2019.2)

Launching P4V components from the command line

If you are a P4 command line client user who occasionally uses P4V for certain functions, like viewing the Revision Graph or the Stream Graph, you can use P4VC, a command-line tool included with P4V that enables you to launch discrete P4V components from the command line without having to open a full P4V instance.

P4VC commands use options, arguments, and behavior that match the P4 command line client. For more information about P4VC commands, type p4vc help in the command line.
