GoVMAX

Overview

GoVMAX represents API bindings for Go that allow you to manage VMAX block platforms. In the true nature of API bindings, it is intended that the functions available are basically a direct implementation of what is available through the API.

The bindings also include VMware vSphere functionality to enable use cases when mapping VMAX storage to RDMs on VMs.

API Compatibility

Currently only tested with VMAX3.

Examples

The package was written using test files, so these can be looked at for a more comprehensive view of how to implement the different functions.

Intialize a new client

smis, err = New(host, port, insecure, username, password)

Some Volume Examples

Get Storage Pools

pools, err := smis.GetStoragePools(testingSID)

Get Volumes

vols, err := smis.GetVolumes(testingSID)

For example usage you can see the REX-Ray repo. There, the govmax package is used to implement a Volume Manager across multiple storage platforms. This includes managing multipathing, mounts, and filesystems.

Environment Variables

Name Description
GOVMAX_SMISHOST the API host
GOVMAX_SMISPORT the API host port
GOVMAX_USERNAME the username
GOVMAX_PASSWORD the password
GOVMAX_INSECURE whether to skip SSL validation
