Ruby wrapper to access the Xen XML-RPC API via simple to use ruby methods, not all methods are implemented, yet. They can be easily added by simply extending the Session class RPC_METHODS Hash to include the correct Regular Expression mathing the call.
# Get the rxen gem require 'rxen'
# create a Session with the Xen Server you want to control xs = Session.new(“my.xenserver.company.com/”)
# login with username and password xs.login_with_password(“root”, “password”)
# Some example calls, all possible calls can be found in the XenAPI # Documentation. Calls are build by class_function(parameters), it is not needed # to pass the session id since it is done automatically. # Get IDs for the VMs running on the Server xs.VM_get_all()
# register for all task events xs.event_register()
# get the next event from the queue xs.event_next()
# unregister from the task events xs.event_unregister()
# logout of the XenServer xs.logout()
Alternativly config based login can be done via xs = Session.new_with_config(“configfile.json”)
