Project Description

Give me an instance of mine image on OpenStack. Hurry!


To run 5minute you need to install following libs:


To install them from RPMs (Fedora), please do dnf -y install $( cat requirement-rpms.txt ).

If you have installed 5minute using pip, they were installed as dependencies. Otherwise, you have to install them manually.

Get config file:

  1. Login into your OpenStack instance WebUI
  2. Navigate to Access & Security -> API Access
  3. Save file from “Download OpenStack RC File” to ~/.5minute/config

Get started:

Show help:

$ 5minute help

Upload your SSH public key:

$ 5minute key ~/.ssh/

Show images we can work with:

$ 5minute images

Boot your machine (consider adding ‘–name’ or ‘–flavor’ to the command):

$ 5minute boot <image_name_or_id>

When the boot is finished, you should be able to ssh to your new machine

$ ssh root@<machine_ip_address>

You can list your current machines:

$ 5minute list

When you are done, kill the machine (you can do this via OpenStack webUI as well):

$ 5minute delete <machine_name_or_id>

To list available OpenStack scenarios:

$ 5minute scenario templates

Run scenario:

$ 5minute scenario boot <scenario_template_name>

When finished with the scenario, you should delete it:

$ 5minute scenario delete <scenario_name_or_id>
