IControl: F5 BigIP SOAP API Client
IControl allows you to easily connect to a BigIP F5 load balancer and by means of the SOAP API. You can programmatically do almost the same things that you would do throught the Web Interface.
Install the gem:
gem install icontrol
In order to configure you just have to set up the username, password and the server you're connecting to:
Using the library
You can retreive, create, delete and modify virtual servers, for more information see IControl::LocalLB::VirtualServer. As an example of you what you can do:
Creating a virtual Server
new_virtual_server = IControl::LocalLB::VirtualServer.create(:name => "foo_virtual_server", :address => "192.168.1.1", :port => "80", :protocol => IControl::Common::ProtocolType::PROTOCOL_TCP, :wildmask => "255.255.255.255", :type => IControl::LocalLB::VirtualServer::Type::RESOURCE_TYPE_POOL, :default_pool => foo_pool, :profiles => )
Obtaining an instance of a virtual server
my_virtual_server = IControl::LocalLB::VirtualServer.find("virtual_server_name")
Changing its default pool
my_virtual_server.default_pool = IControl::LocalLB::Pool.find("my_new_default_pool")
Note on Patches/Pull Requests
Fork the project.
Make your feature addition or bug fix.
Add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.
Commit, do not mess with rakefile, version, or history. (if you want to have your own version, that is fine but bump version in a commit by itself I can ignore when I pull)
Send me a pull request. Bonus points for topic branches.
