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
