  3. Two ways to install infrasim:

    • install infrasim from source code:

      git clone https://github.com/InfraSIM/infrasim-compute.git
      
      cd infrasim-compute
      
      sudo pip install -r requirements.txt
      
      sudo python setup.py install
      
    • install infrasim from python library:

      sudo pip install infrasim-compute
      

Start Infrasim Service

  1. Initialization (you need do it once)

    sudo infrasim init
    

    Optional arguments:

    • -s, –skip-installation Ignore qemu/openipmi package installation
    • -f, –force Destroy existing Nodes
    • -c [CONFIG_FILE], –config-file [CONFIG_FILE] Use customized yaml file for the default node
    • -t [TYPE], –type [TYPE] Render specified node type for the default node
  2. Infrasim Service Version:

    sudo infrasim version
    
  3. Infrasim Node Configuration Management:

    • Add configuration mapping to a node
    sudo infrasim config add <node name> <config path>
    
    • Delete configuration mapping of a node
    sudo infrasim config delete <node name>
    
    • Update configuration mapping of a node
    sudo infrasim config update <node name> <config path>
    
    • Edit configuration mapping with environment editor
    sudo infrasim config edit
    
    • List all configuration mappings
    sudo infrasim config list
    
  4. Infrasim Service Node Commands

    • Start a node
    sudo infrasim node start [node name]
    
    • Check node status
    sudo infrasim node status [node name]
    
    • Stop a node
    sudo infrasim node stop [node name]
    
    • Restart a node
    sudo infrasim node restart [node name]
    
    • Stop a node and detroy its runtime workspace
    sudo infrasim node destroy [node name]
    

    The default node configuration is already added to configuration mapping during infrasim init. In node commands, argument [node name] is optional. If it’s not specified, it’s treated as node “default”.

Notice: You can use VNC to access the emulated legacy hardware, the default VNC port is 5901
