Instead of running benchmarks in a dashboard, you can also run them within your terminal with the steampipe check command:

Run all benchmarks:

steampipe check all

Run an single benchmark:

steampipe check benchmark.nsa_cisa_v1_network_hardening_cpu_limit

Run a specific control:

steampipe check control.daemonset_cpu_limit

Different output formats are also available, for more information please see Output Formats.
