I was learning how to use Ansible play books to adminster Linode instances. While doing so, a script for dynamic Linode inventories I had downloaded from a repo started to fail with intermittent timeouts when connecting to the Linode API.
I contacted Linode customer service support. The answer was “ICMP rate limiting” was causing my timeouts.
I opened the hood on the code I had downloaded. I saw spaghetti. I cannot confirm that it was the source the ICMP rate limiting though I have not yet run into the issue since I have stopped implementing it.
I wrote some preliminary code in IPython to see what the results were using Python Requests. I have yet to run into connection timeouts.
I decided to attempt to write a Python package makes Linode API calls and handles the returned results. This will be useful in the creation of Ansible dynamic inventories. (http://docs.ansible.com/ansible/intro_dynamic_inventory.html).
- uses Python Requests: https://github.com/kennethreitz/requests/branches
- will be used to create dynamic inventories for Ansible: http://docs.ansible.com/ansible/intro_dynamic_inventory.html
- First release on PyPI.
