Ganeti RAPI client

Project Description

Gentleman is a simple, straightforward Python library for communication with Ganeti clusters using Ganeti’s RAPI.


Import a client of your choice, and then do some work with it.

>>> from gentleman.sync import RequestsRapiClient
>>> c = RequestsRapiClient("your.ganeti.cluster")
>>> c.start()
>>> print c.version
>>> print c.features
['instance-reinstall-reqv1', 'node-evac-res1', 'node-migrate-reqv1',

There’s also a Twisted client. An example with Twisted’s shell:

>>> from gentleman.async import *
>>> c = TwistedRapiClient("your.ganeti.cluster")
>>> c.start()
<Deferred #0>
Deferred #0 called back: None
>>> c.version
>>> c.features
['instance-reinstall-reqv1', 'node-evac-res1', 'node-migrate-reqv1',


Gentleman is made available under the terms of the GPL, version 2 or (at your discretion) any later version.

Gentleman is based on code from Ganeti, (c) 2010-11 Google Inc., and code from Ganeti Web Manager, (c) 2011-12 Oregon State University.
