File movement utility

Project description

The objective of BuffaloFQ is to provide a very simple and reliable method of moving files around an architecture.

Installation:

$ mkvirtualenv buffalofq_cpy $ pip install buffalofq –upgrade

Configuration:

Most configuration is handled through a simple yaml file, that is kept in the xdg-compliant config directory. On linux this would be:

  • $HOME/.config/buffalofq_mover/[config-name1].yml
  • $HOME/.config/buffalofq_mover/[config-name2].yml
  • $HOME/.config/buffalofq_mover/[config-name3].yml

Config example:

  • name: ids_to_load #
  • status: enabled # choices are: enabled, disabled
  • polling_seconds: 60 # delay in seconds between checks for new files
  • limit_total: -1 # choices: -1 (run continuously), 0 (run until source_dir is empty), [some number] run until this number have been moved.
  • port: 22 #
  • key_filename: id_auto # your ssh key
  • log_dir: /data/logs # location buffalofq_mover will write its logs
  • log_level: debug # choices are: info, warning, error, critical
  • sort_key: time # choices are: None, name, or name of a field within filename
  • source_host: localhost # must be localhost at this time
  • source_user: bobsmith # not yet used
  • source_dir: /data/output #
  • source_fn: ‘*’ # wild-card for selecting source files
  • source_post_dir: /data/archive #
  • source_post_action: move # choices: move, delete, pass
  • dest_host: datawarehouse #
  • dest_user: bobsmith # used to log into dest_host
  • dest_dir: /data/input #
  • dest_fn: ‘’ # needed if dest_post_action == symlink
  • dest_post_dir: None # not used yet
  • dest_post_action: pass # choices: pass, symlink

Run:

To run once, you can simply run it like:

  • $ ./buffalofq_mover –config-name [config-name1]

A trivial way to keep it running continuously:

  • $ nohup ./buffalofq_mover –config-name [config-name1] &

0.0.2 - initial genuinely usable working version - add ability to receive files in order of their name, or any field within the name - add ability to provide name of ssh key to use - rename audit file & buffalofq program to buffalofq_mover - misc general improvements and refactorings

0.0.1 - initial working version
