An OML client module for Python
This is a Python module for the OML measurement library based on the OML text protocol [oml-text].
Install using pip [oml4py-pypi]:
$ pip install oml4py
or download the package and run:
$ python setup.py install
This module provides the OMLBase class, which contains the following methods:
To use OML in a python project, import the OMLBase class:
from oml4py import OMLBase
Start by initializing an OMLBase object. The init method takes up to four arguments:
- the name of the application,
- the name of the experiment,
- the name of the node,
- and the OML server URI in the form tcp:hostname:port
The only mandatory argument is the first one (the name of the application). If you skip any of the others, they may be defined by environment variables (OML_DOMAIN, OML_NAME, OML_COLLECT) or via command-line options. If these variables are not passed in explicitly and neither the command line options nor environment variables are defined then the application will run with OML disabled, and the measurements that would have been sent to OML will be printed on stdout instead.
Next, add one or more measurement points. Pass the name of the measurement point and a schema string to the start method. The schema string should be in the format measurement_name1:measurement_type1 measurement_name2:measurement_type2 for example:
x.addmp("fft", "freq:long amplitude:double fft_val:double")
When you have set up all your measurement points, call start():
When you have a measurement point to send to OML, store them in a tuple Then pass the name of the measurement point and the tuple of values to inject, as follows:
x.inject("fft", (259888, 15, -38))
At the end of your program, call close to gracefully close the database:
