Python bindings for MCollective

Project description Stories in Ready Bitdeli badge


Python bindings for MCollective inspired by mcollective-python example. Making a ping discovery agent call is just 3 lines:

>>> config = config.Config.from_configfile('client.cfg')
>>> msg = message.Message(body='ping', agent='discovery', config=config)
>>> pprint.pprint(rpc.SimpleAction(config=config, msg=msg, agent='discovery').call())
[{':body': 'pong',
  ':msgtime': 1395419893,
  ':requestid': '003ba8142857ccb42cfc4d51262739ecafd43aca',
  ':senderagent': 'discovery',
  ':senderid': 'mco1'}]


  • MCollective 2.0 - 2.4
  • Python 2.6 - 3.4
  • All MCollective connectors (STOMP, RabbitMQ, ActiveMQ)
  • SSL security provider (YAML serialization)
  • Battle tested
