NAME
nfstest.host - Host module
DESCRIPTION
Provides a set of tools for running commands on the local host or a remote host, including a mechanism for running commands in the background. It provides methods for mounting and unmounting from an NFS server and a mechanism to simulate a network partition via the use of 'iptables'. Currently, there is no mechanism to restore the iptables rules to their original state.
CLASSES
class Host(baseobj.BaseObj) Host object Host() -> New Host object Usage: from nfstest.host import Host # Create host object for local host x = Host() # Create host object for remote host y = Host(host='192.168.0.11') # Run command to the local host x.run_cmd("ls -l") # Send command to the remote host and run it as root y.run_cmd("ls -l", sudo=True) # Run command in the background x.run_cmd("tcpdump", sudo=True, wait=False) .... .... # Stop command running in the background x.stop_cmd() # Mount volume using default options x.mount() # Unmount volume x.umount() Methods defined here: --------------------- __init__(self, **kwargs) Constructor Initialize object's private data. host: Hostname or IP address [default: localhost] user: User to log in to host [default: ''] server: NFS server name or IP address [default: None] nfsversion: NFS version [default: 4] minorversion: NFS minor version [default: 1] port: NFS server port [default: 2049] export: Exported file system to mount [default: '/'] mtpoint: Mount point [default: '/mnt/t'] datadir: Data directory where files are created [default: ''] mtopts: Mount options [default: 'hard,rsize=4096,wsize=4096'] interface: Network device interface [default: 'eth0'] nomount: Debug option so the server is not actually mounted [default: False] iptables: Iptables command [default: '/usr/sbin/iptables'] sudo: Sudo command [default: '/usr/bin/sudo'] mount(self, **kwargs) Mount the file system on the given mount point. server: NFS server name or IP address [default: self.server] nfsversion: NFS version [default: self.nfsversion] minorversion: NFS minor version [default: self.minorversion] port: NFS server port [default: self.port] export: Exported file system to mount [default: self.export] mtpoint: Mount point [default: self.mtpoint] datadir: Data directory where files are created [default: self.datadir] mtopts: Mount options [default: self.mtopts] Return the mount point. network_drop(self, ipaddr, port) Simulate a network drop by dropping all tcp packets going to the given ipaddr and port using the ipta- bles commands. network_reset(self) Reset the network by flushing all the chains in the table using the iptables command. run_cmd(self, cmd, sudo=False, dlevel='DBG1', msg='', wait=True) Run the command to the remote machine using ssh. There is no user authentication, so remote host must allow ssh connection without any passwords for the user. For a localhost the command is just executed and ssh is not used. The object for the process of the command is stored in object attribute 'self.process' to be used by methods wait_cmd() and stop_cmd(). The standard output of the command is also stored in the object attribute 'self.pstdout' while the standard error output of the command is stored in 'self.pstderr'. cmd: Command to execute sudo: Run command using sudo if option is True dlevel: Debug level for displaying the command to the user msg: Prefix this message to the debug message to be displayed wait: Wait for command to complete before returning Return the standard output of the command and the return code or exit status is stored in the object attribute 'self.returncode'. stop_cmd(self, process=None, dlevel=None, msg='') Terminate command started by run_cmd() by calling wait_cmd() with the 'terminate' option set to True. process: The object for the process of the command to terminate, or terminate all commands started by run_cmd() if this option is not given dlevel: Debug level for displaying the command to the user, default is the level given by run_cmd() msg: Prefix this message to the debug message to be displayed Return the exit status of the last command sudo_cmd(self, cmd) Prefix the SUDO command if effective user is not root. umount(self) Unmount the file system. wait_cmd(self, process=None, terminate=False, dlevel=None, msg='') Wait for command started by run_cmd() to finish. process: The object for the process of the command to wait for, or wait for all commands started by run_cmd() if this option is not given terminate: If True, send a signal to terminate the command or commands and then wait for all commands to finish dlevel: Debug level for displaying the command to the user, default is the level given by run_cmd() msg: Prefix this message to the debug message to be displayed Return the exit status of the last command Static methods defined here: ---------------------------- get_ip_address(host='', ipv6=False) Get IP address associated with the given host name. This could be run as an instance or class method.
