This is a list of the most popular parameters, in a slightly more logical order:

-I - instance - (uppercase letter i)
Specifies the CMOD instance to connect to. If you only have one instance, and the instance name is ARCHIVE, you can omit this.
If you have multiple CMOD instances on your server, you must specify one of them.
-h - hostname
Specifies the server name to connect to. If you are performing a query on a remote server, specify the domain name or IP address of the server to connect to. If the remote server has multiple instances, you will need to define them locally in your ars.ini configuration file.
-u - CMOD User Name
Specifies the CMOD User name to use in order to connect to authenticate to the OnDemand Server.
-p - CMOD User password stash file
In older versions of CMOD, this parameter was used to specify the CMOD User password. This was painfully insecure, as other users logged into the server could see the command in the process list, and potentially learn the password for a Content Manager OnDemand Administrative account.
Since CMOD v9.0 and higher, stash files can be used to store passwords in a safe and encoded format that is not easily decoded into clear text.
