saltnanny 0.2.1

Python Module that parses salt returns stored in an external job cache and logs output

Latest Version: 0.2.2


Python Module that parses salt returns stored in redis and logs output

Example Usage:

Command Line Usage:

salt-nanny localhost minion1 minion2

Look for salt returns in localhost for minions - minion1 & minion2

salt-nanny localhost minion1 minion2 -p 6380 -x 20 -I 5 60 2

This command tells salt-nanny to wait 5, 10, 20, 40 and 60 seconds between each retry initially and then 60s for subsequent retries. Attempt 20 times and then give up. Use port 6380 for redis.

Example Python code:

#!/usr/bin/env python
import salt.client
from saltnanny import SaltNanny

# Initialize SaltNanny with the cache & salt function
config = {'type': 'redis', 'host':'localhost', 'port':6379, 'db':'0'}
nanny = SaltNanny(config, 'test', 'state.highstate')

# Use SaltNanny to track returns to the external job cache
salt_nanny.initialize(['minion1', 'minion2'])
return_code = salt_nanny.process_returns()
  • For the example above, the log file in logs/test-state.highstate.log will contain results of the salt highstate
  • The return code is 0 if all the salt functions for all minions succeded with a return dict containing retcode:0.
  • SaltNanny also checks state results in case of a highstate. If any one state fails, the retcode is non zero.
