HPE 3PAR Software Development Kit for Python

Project description

HPE 3PAR Software Development Kit for Python

This is a Client library that can talk to the HPE 3PAR Storage array. The 3PAR storage array has a REST web service interface and a command line interface. This client library implements a simple interface for talking with either interface, as needed. The python Requests library is used to communicate with the REST interface. The python paramiko library is used to communicate with the command line interface over an SSH connection.


This branch requires 3.1.3 version MU1 or later of the 3PAR firmware.

Running Simulators

The unit tests should automatically start/stop the simulators. To start them manually use the following commands. To stop them, use 'kill'. Starting them manually before running unit tests also allows you to watch the debug output.


$ python test/ -port 5001 -user <USERNAME> -password <PASSWORD> -debug


$ python test/ [port]
