Small library for shutting down and starting up local server
This library handles rather specific remote power management scenario.
- Server can be woken up with wake-on-lan (WOL)
- SSH access with public key authentication to the server (for shutting it down)
- Server responds to ping (checking whether the server is running)
pip install manage_server_power
or clone the repository and use
python setup.py install
Configuration and notes
On the server side:
- Enable WOL (from BIOS/… settings).
- Take note of relevant MAC address.
- Add new user to server (say, powermanagement).
- Edit sudoers (visudo) and add powermanagement ALL=NOPASSWD: /sbin/poweroff
On the management computer:
- Generate ssh public key pair (ssh-keygen)
- Copy public key to powermanagement user on server (add it to .ssh/authorized_keys)
- Connect to server to check that public key works properly and to add server host key to known_hosts.
- At least with some devices/networks, WOL won’t work if broadcast_ip is not set to local network’s broadcast, instead of 255.255.255.255.
import manage_server_power sp = manage_server_power.ServerPower(server_hostname="example.com", server_mac="61:a3:18:1c:84:4b", server_port=22, # optional, default is 22 ssh_username="powermanagement", broadcast_ip="192.168.1.255", # optional, default is 255.255.255.255 socket_timeout=0.5, # optional wol_port=9, # optional, default is 9 ) print sp.is_alive() # SERVER_DOWN, SERVER_UP or SERVER_UP_NOT_RESPONDING print sp.wake_up() # send WOL packet print sp.shutdown() # ssh in and run "sudo poweroff"
Download the file for your platform. If you're not sure which to choose, learn more about installing packages.
