NAME

RackMan - Perl modules for connecting to a RackTables database

DESCRIPTION

RackMan is a set of Perl modules for fetching information from a RackTables database. The distribution also includes some commands that show how to use the RackMan API.

  • rack is a program that generates the configuration files for the given RackObject, and talk with the corresponding devices to set them up accordingly.
  • cisco-status is a program that connects to a Cisco switch to list the devices connected to it, with additionnal information resolved from RackTables.
  • cfengine-tags is a program that generates tag files for Cfengine.

A technical presentation of this software was made at the French Perl Workshop 2012: http://maddingue.org/conferences/fpw-2012/rackman/

Note: This software was written to perform very specific tasks. Although it was tried to keep it generic, it certainly isn't, and the documentation is very rough. There's a more comprehensive tutorial (only in French for now) in pod/RackMan/Manual.fr.pod
