OpenBTS NodeManager client

Project description

a Python client for the OpenBTS NodeManager,
providing access to several components in the OpenBTS application suite:
SMQueue, SIPAuthServe, and OpenBTS itself.


### requirements
* Endaga's OpenBTS fork (tested on `3edca32`)
* Endaga's SMQueue fork (tested on `bc292b2`)
* Endaga's SIPAuthServe fork (tested on `3affcd7`)
* Endaga's NodeManager fork (tested on `fae5611`)
* Python 2.7


### installation

```shell
$ pip install openbts
```


### usage

```python
import openbts

# read a config value from SMQueue
smqueue_connection = openbts.components.SMQueue()
response = smqueue_connection.read_config('Bounce.Code')
print response.data['value']
# 101

# update an SIPAuthServe config value
sipauthserve_connection = openbts.components.SIPAuthServe()
response = sipauthserve_connection.update_config('Log.Alarms.Max', 12)
print response.code
# 204

# get realtime OpenBTS monitoring data
openbts_connection = openbts.components.OpenBTS()
response = openbts_connection.monitor()
print response.data['noiseRSSI']
# -67

# view all subscriber data
response = sipauthserve_connection.get_subscribers()
print len(response.data)
# 78

# view tmsis entries
response = openbts_connection.tmsis()
print len(response)
# 214

# create a new subscriber by name, IMSI, MSIDSN and optional ki
subscriber = ('ada', 0123, 4567, 8901)
response = sipauthserve_connection.create_subscriber(*subscriber)
print response.code
# 200
```

### resources
* see the [OpenBTS 4.0 manual](http://openbts.org/site/wp-content/uploads/2014/07/OpenBTS-4.0-Manual.pdf)
* and the [NodeManager source](https://github.com/RangeNetworks/NodeManager) from Range


### testing
run unit tests with `nose` after installing the required modules:

```shell
$ pip install -r requirements.txt
$ nosetests openbts --with-coverage --cover-package=openbts
```

We have quite a few similar unit tests between components.
Many could be written against `openbts.core.BaseComponent`, as the components
all inherit from this single class. But it seems better to individually
inspect the functionality of each class in `openbts.components`. Anyway,
onward..

To run the integration tests, you'll need an OpenBTS instance running on the
same machine as the testing script. The test will modify real system
parameters, so run it with caution. Or, better yet, run it against a system
not in production.

```shell
$ nosetests integration_tests
$ nosetests integration_tests:SIPAuthServe
$ nosetests integration_tests:SIPAuthServe.test_get_all_subscribers
```


### release process
you need a `~/.pypirc` like this:

```
[distutils]
index-servers =
pypi

[pypi]
repository: https://pypi.python.org/pypi
username: yosemitebandit
password: mhm
```

bump the versions in `setup.py` and here in the readme, then run:

```shell
$ git tag 0.0.1 -m 'openbts-python v0.0.1'
$ git push origin master --tags
$ python setup.py sdist upload -r pypi
```
