Project description

# CLI tool to run commands on ec2 instances.

## Supported cloud platforms

  • [x] AWS EC2
  • [ ] Openstack via ec2 API endpoint

## Features

  • [x] Multiple remote users (if can’t authenticate - will try next username)
  • [x] Filter by tags
  • [x] Parallel execution
  • [ ] Profiles (group settings and filters in named profile, and specify profile on vpc.py run)
  • [ ] Filter by launch date (launched-before and launched-after )
  • [ ] Filter by keypair
  • [ ] –dry-run flag

## Installation

Install the latest stable version:

` pip install vpc.py `

## Usage

Get help:

` vpc.py --help vpc.py run --help vpc.py run-one --help `

Create settings file:

` mkdir ~/.vpc.py cat >>~/.vpc.py/settings<<-EOF [default] remote_user = ubuntu,centos,root private_key = /home/ubuntu/.ssh/ec2.pem aws_access_key_id = access-key aws_secret_access_key = secret-access-key aws_region = eu-west-1 EOF `

Filter by tag ‘owner=automation’ and run command on resulted instances:

` vpc.py run -f owner=automation 'df -h' `

Run script:

` vpc.py run -f owner=automation<<-EOF echo hello uname -a EOF `

Run any script or binary (assuming it’s compatible with target hosts):

` vpc.py run -f owner=automation < some_python_script.py vpc.py run -f owner=automation < /usr/local/bin/weather `
