Introduction
------------

Ganeti supports a remote API for enable external tools to easily
retrieve information about a cluster's state. The remote API daemon,
*ganeti-rapi*, is automatically started on the master node. By default
it runs on TCP port 5080, but this can be changed either in
``.../constants.py`` or via the command line parameter *-p*. SSL mode,
which is used by default, can also be disabled by passing command line
parameters.

Users and passwords
-------------------

``ganeti-rapi`` reads users and passwords from a file (usually
``/var/lib/ganeti/rapi_users``) on startup. After modifying the password
file, ``ganeti-rapi`` must be restarted.

Each line consists of two or three fields separated by whitespace. The
first two fields are for username and password. The third field is
optional and can be used to specify per-user options. Currently,
``write`` is the only option supported and enables the user to execute
31 32
operations modifying the cluster. Lines starting with the hash sign
(``#``) are treated as comments.
33 34 35 36 37

Passwords can either be written in clear text or as a hash. Clear text
passwords may not start with an opening brace (``{``) or they must be
prefixed with ``{cleartext}``. To use the hashed form, get the MD5 hash
of the string ``$username:Ganeti Remote API:$password`` (e.g. ``echo -n
38 39 40
'jack:Ganeti Remote API:abc123' | openssl md5``) [#pwhash]_ and prefix
it with ``{ha1}``. Using the scheme prefix for all passwords is
recommended. Scheme prefixes are not case sensitive.

Example::

  # Give Jack and Fred read-only access
  jack abc123
  fred {cleartext}foo555

  # Give write access to an imaginary instance creation script
  autocreator xyz789 write

  # Hashed password for Jessica
  jessica {HA1}7046452df2cbb530877058712cf17bd4 write


.. [#pwhash] Using the MD5 hash of username, realm and password is
   described in RFC2617_ ("HTTP Authentication"), sections 3.2.2.2 and
   3.3. The reason for using it over another algorithm is forward
   compatibility. If ``ganeti-rapi`` were to implement HTTP Digest
   authentication in the future, the same hash could be used.
   In the current version ``ganeti-rapi``'s realm, ``Ganeti Remote
   API``, can only be changed by modifying the source code.


64 65 66
Protocol
--------

67 68
The protocol used is JSON_ over HTTP designed after the REST_ principle.
HTTP Basic authentication as per RFC2617_ is supported.
69 70 71

.. _JSON: http://www.json.org/
.. _REST: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Representational_State_Transfer
72
.. _RFC2617: http://tools.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2617.txt

PUT or POST?
------------

According to RFC2616 the main difference between PUT and POST is that
POST can create new resources but PUT can only create the resource the
URI was pointing to on the PUT request.

Unfortunately, due to historic reasons, the Ganeti RAPI library is not
consistent with this usage, so just use the methods as documented below
for each resource.

For more details have a look in the source code at
``lib/rapi/rlib2.py``.


Generic parameter types
-----------------------

A few generic refered parameter types and the values they allow.

``bool``
++++++++

A boolean option will accept ``1`` or ``0`` as numbers but not
i.e. ``True`` or ``False``.

101 102 103
Generic parameters
------------------

104 105
A few parameter mean the same thing across all resources which implement
it.
106 107 108 109

``bulk``
++++++++

Iustin Pop's avatar
Iustin Pop committed
110 111 112 113 114
Bulk-mode means that for the resources which usually return just a list
of child resources (e.g. ``/2/instances`` which returns just instance
names), the output will instead contain detailed data for all these
subresources. This is more efficient than query-ing the sub-resources
themselves.
115 116 117 118

``dry-run``
+++++++++++

119 120 121
The boolean *dry-run* argument, if provided and set, signals to Ganeti
that the job should not be executed, only the pre-execution checks will
be done.
122

Iustin Pop's avatar

123 124 125
This is useful in trying to determine (without guarantees though, as in
the meantime the cluster state could have changed) if the operation is
likely to succeed or at least start executing.
126

127 128 129 130 131 132
``force``
+++++++++++

Force operation to continue even if it will cause the cluster to become
inconsistent (e.g. because there are not enough master candidates).

133 134 135
Usage examples
--------------

You can access the API using your favorite programming language as long
as it supports network connections.

480

481 482 483 484 485 486 487 488 489 490 491 492
The URI takes optional ``type=soft|hard|full`` and
``ignore_secondaries=0|1`` parameters.

``type`` defines the reboot type. ``soft`` is just a normal reboot,
without terminating the hypervisor. ``hard`` means full shutdown
(including terminating the hypervisor process) and startup again.
``full`` is like ``hard`` but also recreates the configuration from
ground up as if you would have done a ``gnt-instance shutdown`` and
``gnt-instance start`` on it.

``ignore_secondaries`` is a bool argument indicating if we start the
instance even if secondary disks are failing.
493

494 495 496
It supports the ``dry-run`` argument.

``/2/instances/[instance_name]/replace-disks``
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Replaces disks on an instance.

It supports the following commands: ``POST``.

``POST``
~~~~~~~~

Takes the parameters ``mode`` (one of ``replace_on_primary``,
553 554 555
``replace_on_secondary``, ``replace_new_secondary`` or
``replace_auto``), ``disks`` (comma separated list of disk indexes),
``remote_node`` and ``iallocator``.
556

557 558 559 560 561 562
Either ``remote_node`` or ``iallocator`` needs to be defined when using
``mode=replace_new_secondary``.

``mode`` is a mandatory parameter. ``replace_auto`` tries to determine
the broken disk(s) on its own and replacing it.

- opresult: OpCodes results as a list

For a successful opcode, the ``opresult`` field corresponding to it will
contain the raw result from its :term:`LogicalUnit`. In case an opcode
has failed, its element in the opresult list will be a list of two
elements:

- first element the error type (the Ganeti internal error name)
- second element a list of either one or two elements:

  - the first element is the textual error description
  - the second element, if any, will hold an error classification

The error classification is most useful for the ``OpPrereqError``
error type - these errors happen before the OpCode has started
executing, so it's possible to retry the OpCode without side
effects. But whether it make sense to retry depends on the error
classification:

``resolver_error``
  Resolver errors. This usually means that a name doesn't exist in DNS,
  so if it's a case of slow DNS propagation the operation can be retried
  later.

``insufficient_resources``
  Not enough resources (iallocator failure, disk space, memory,
  etc.). If the resources on the cluster increase, the operation might
  succeed.

``wrong_input``
  Wrong arguments (at syntax level). The operation will not ever be
  accepted unless the arguments change.

``wrong_state``
  Wrong entity state. For example, live migration has been requested for
  a down instance, or instance creation on an offline node. The
  operation can be retried once the resource has changed state.

``unknown_entity``
  Entity not found. For example, information has been requested for an
  unknown instance.

``already_exists``
  Entity already exists. For example, instance creation has been
  requested for an already-existing instance.

``resource_not_unique``
  Resource not unique (e.g. MAC or IP duplication).

``internal_error``
  Internal cluster error. For example, a node is unreachable but not set
  offline, or the ganeti node daemons are not working, etc. A
  ``gnt-cluster verify`` should be run.

``environment_error``
  Environment error (e.g. node disk error). A ``gnt-cluster verify``
  should be run.

Note that in the above list, by entity we refer to a node or instance,
while by a resource we refer to an instance's disk, or NIC, etc.

Evacuates all secondary instances off a node.

It supports the following commands: ``POST``.

``POST``
~~~~~~~~

To evacuate a node, either one of the ``iallocator`` or ``remote_node``
864
parameters must be passed::
865 866 867 868

    evacuate?iallocator=[iallocator]
    evacuate?remote_node=[nodeX.example.com]

869 870 871 872 873 874 875 876 877 878 879 880 881 882 883
The result value will be a list, each element being a triple of the job
id (for this specific evacuation), the instance which is being evacuated
by this job, and the node to which it is being relocated. In case the
node is already empty, the result will be an empty list (without any
jobs being submitted).

And additional parameter ``early_release`` signifies whether to try to
parallelize the evacuations, at the risk of increasing I/O contention
and increasing the chances of data loss, if the primary node of any of
the instances being evacuated is not fully healthy.

If the dry-run parameter was specified, then the evacuation jobs were
not actually submitted, and the job IDs will be null.
