A command called inventory and foo for the cloudmesh shell
Instalation and Documentation
Please note that several packages are available which are pointed to in the instalation documentation.
Sometimes its necessary to maintain a simple inventory. Naturally if you know python you can do this with dicts. However to manage a large number of items with repeated values its is of advantage to do this from the commandline.
We have written such a tool that lets you easily manage the resources in a table format.
Make sure you have a new version of python and pip. We tested with
- python 3.7.3
- pip 19.0.3
Instalation with pip
You will need the followng other cloudmesh modules before you can install via pip:
$ pip insatll cloudmesh-common $ pip insatll cloudmesh-cmd5 $ pip insatll cloudmesh-inventory
Instalation from source
To install it form source (which is the current method) use:
$ mkdir ~/cm $ cd ~/cm $ pip install cloudmesh-installer $ cloudmesh-installer git clone inventory $ cloudmesh-installer install inventory
This will clone a number of repositories in the
cm directory and
install them with
pip from them.
Your inventory will be located at
You can also change the yaml file by hand, but the cm command is more convenient.
An example file will look as follows:
g001: cluster: gregor comment: test host: g001 ip: 127.0.0.1 label: g001 metadata: None name: g001 owners: gvonlasz project: cloudmesh service: compute g002: cluster: gregor comment: test host: g002 ip: 127.0.0.1 label: g002 metadata: None name: g002 owners: gvonlasz project: cloudmesh service: compute

Usage: inventory add NAMES [--label=LABEL] [--service=SERVICES] [--project=PROJECT] [--owners=OWNERS] [--comment=COMMENT] [--cluster=CLUSTER] [--ip=IP] inventory set NAMES for ATTRIBUTE to VALUES inventory delete NAMES inventory clone NAMES from SOURCE inventory list [NAMES] [--format=FORMAT] [--columns=COLUMNS] inventory info Arguments: NAMES Name of the resources (example i[10-20]) FORMAT The format of the output is either txt, yaml, dict, table [default: table]. OWNERS a comma separated list of owners for this resource LABEL a unique label for this resource SERVICE a string that identifies the service PROJECT a string that identifies the project SOURCE a single host name to clone from COMMENT a comment Options: -v verbose mode Description: add -- adds a resource to the resource inventory list -- lists the resources in the given format delete -- deletes objects from the table clone -- copies the content of an existing object and creates new once with it set -- sets for the specified objects the attribute to the given value or values. If multiple values are used the values are assigned to the and objects in order. See examples map -- allows to set attibutes on a set of objects with a set of values Examples: cm inventory add x[0-3] --service=openstack adds hosts x0, x1, x2, x3 and puts the string openstack into the service column cm lits lists the repository cm x[3-4] set temperature to 32 sets for the resources x3, x4 the value of the temperature to 32 cm x[7-8] set ip 128.0.0.[0-1] sets the value of x7 to 188.8.131.52 sets the value of x8 to 184.108.40.206 cm clone x[5-6] from x3 clones the values for x5, x6 from x3
