A Python interface to the Alcatel 5620 SAM

Project description

Python 5620 SAM-O interface module

The ‘sam’ module is a helper library for Python to interface with Alcatel’s 5620 Service Aware Manager.

Specifically, it connects to the SAM-O (SOAP/XML) interface of the 5620. It allows you to query any object defined in the “OSS XML Schema” section of the 5620 SAM-O documentation, retrieving the results as a Python dictionary. Set your query parameters with a dictionary. So no more wasting your time with XML!

  • An Alcatel 5620 SAM installation
  • The optional SAM-O XML interface
  • Network access to the SAM-O interface
  • The 5620 SAM XML Schema documentation, to form generic_query parameters
  • This library was not developed by Alcatel/Lucent and is unofficial in nature. It is not supported by Alcatel - it is open source. Please see the LICENSE file in the source code for more information. It was developed independently in an attempt to make interfacing with SAM-O easier for Python users.

Change Log

Version 0.2 (Mon Nov 29 2010)
  • Fixed bug with missing hashlib/md5 module triggered when ‘password’ argument used.
  • Modified SAM.saps() method to return just a list of the SAPs, to make handling easier (to differentiate between SAP types, see the serviceType field, which contains well known values like ‘vll’, ‘vpls’, ‘ies’ and ‘vprn’).
  • Fixed a bug in namespace handling that would have occured if a tag contained what appeared to be half a namespace.
  • Performance improvements, only noticable on massive queries like ‘equipment.Equipment’.
Version 0.1 (Fri Nov 27 2010)
  • Initial release
