Kili Cloud Computer Driver Documentation

Kili Cloud is a public cloud provider based in Africa.

Kili Cloud driver is based on the OpenStack one. For more information information and OpenStack specific documentation, please refer to OpenStack Compute Driver Documentation page.

Examples

1. Instantiating the driver

Unlike other OpenStack based providers, Kili cloud also requires you to specify tenant name when connecting to their cloud. You can do that by passing tenant_name argument to the driver constructor as shown in the code example below.

This attribute represents a company name you have entered while signing up for Kili.

from libcloud.compute.types import Provider
from libcloud.compute.providers import get_driver

USERNAME = 'your account username'
PASSWORD = 'your account password'
TENANT_NAME = 'project name'

cls = get_driver(Provider.KILI)
driver = cls(USERNAME, PASSWORD, tenant_name=TENANT_NAME)
print(driver.list_nodes())

Note: tenant_name argument is required for Kili cloud.

delete_image(image)

Delete a NodeImage

@inherits: NodeDriver.delete_image

Parameters:image (NodeImage) – image witch should be used
Return type:bool
delete_key_pair(key_pair)

Delete a KeyPair.

Parameters:keypair (OpenStackKeyPair) – KeyPair to delete
Return type:bool
deploy_node(**kwargs)

Create a new node, and start deployment.

In order to be able to SSH into a created node access credentials are required.

A user can pass either a NodeAuthPassword or NodeAuthSSHKey to the auth argument. If the create_node implementation supports that kind if credential (as declared in self.features['create_node']) then it is passed on to create_node. Otherwise it is not passed on to create_node and it is only used for authentication.

If the auth parameter is not supplied but the driver declares it supports generates_password then the password returned by create_node will be used to SSH into the server.

Finally, if the ssh_key_file is supplied that key will be used to SSH into the server.

This function may raise a DeploymentException, if a create_node call was successful, but there is a later error (like SSH failing or timing out). This exception includes a Node object which you may want to destroy if incomplete deployments are not desirable.

>>> from libcloud.compute.drivers.dummy import DummyNodeDriver
>>> from libcloud.compute.deployment import ScriptDeployment
>>> from libcloud.compute.deployment import MultiStepDeployment
>>> from libcloud.compute.base import NodeAuthSSHKey
>>> driver = DummyNodeDriver(0)
>>> key = NodeAuthSSHKey('...') # read from file
>>> script = ScriptDeployment("yum -y install emacs strace tcpdump")
>>> msd = MultiStepDeployment([key, script])
>>> def d():
...     try:
...         driver.deploy_node(deploy=msd)
...     except NotImplementedError:
...         print ("not implemented for dummy driver")
>>> d()
not implemented for dummy driver

Deploy node is typically not overridden in subclasses. The existing implementation should be able to handle most such.

Parameters:
  • deploy (Deployment) – Deployment to run once machine is online and available to SSH.
  • ssh_username (str) – Optional name of the account which is used when connecting to SSH server (default is root)
