Sample SMI-S Java Client


This chapter describes the Sample SMI-S java client developed using JSR 48 specifications. JSR 48 is a set of java WBEM Service APIs and reference implementation for WBEM. WBEM is an initiative from the DMTF that unifies systems management and instrumentation.

The SMI-S java client uses the client and listener packages provided by the JSR 48 specifications, which consists of classes and interfaces for developing WBEM Clients and WBEM Event Listeners. The WBEMClient interface in the client package is used to invoke WBEM operations against a WBEM Server. A WBEMClient implementation can be retrieved from the WBEMClientFactory by specifying the protocol to be used. IndicationListener is implemented by the code that wants to create a listener for indications. The WBEMListener interface is used to add or remove WBEM Indication Listeners.

The SMI-S java client uses the Cisco DCNM SMI-S external agent for managing and monitoring Cisco DCNM for SAN.

You can perform the following tasks from the services provided by the SMI-S client tool:

List Zonesets, Zones, and Zonemembers in VSAN

Obtain VSANs using enumerateInstanceNames API in WBEMClient.

Table 5-1 Services Provided by SMI-S Java Client

Services Name
Description

List Switches

This service lists the VSANs present in the fabric. You need to select the VSAN to see the list of switches. The tool uses the enumerateInstances API in Interface WBEMClient.

List Hosts

This service lists the hosts present in the fabric and also lists the endports present in the host. The tool uses the enumerateInstances API in Interface WBEMClient and an associatorInstances to get the host associated to the end ports.

List Target

This service lists the targets present in the fabric and also lists the end ports present in the target. The tool uses the enumerateInstances API in Interface WBEMClient and an associatorInstances to get the target associated to the end ports.

List VSANs in Fabric

This service lists all of the VSANs present in the fabric and their properties. For example, the status, WWN, VSAN ID, and temporary name of the VSAN. The tool uses the enumerateInstances API in the Interface WBEMClient.

List Switches in the VSAN

This service lists all the VSANs that are up and active in the fabric. Once you select it, the logical computer systems (logical switches) present in that VSAN are displayed. It also gives information of the physical switch each logical switch is hosted on.

Enumerate the Names of any CIM Class

This option allows you to select a CIM class of your choice to view CIMObjectPath names for a specified CIM class.

Enumerate the Instance of any CIM Class

This option allows you to select a CIM class of your choice to view instances of a specified CIM class.

Execute Zone Operations

This option lists the bunch of zone services supported by the Cisco SMI-S client tool.

Subscription of the Event Listener

SMI-S Indication client can be used to subscribe to events.

Examples of Developing SMI-S Client Using WBEM Solutions

The following example shows how to obtain WBEMclient with the specified protocol from WBEMClientFactory:

/*
            * WBEMClient handle
            */
            WBEMClient clientObj = null;
 
   
            /*
            * The host to connect to. In the form of a WBEM URL. Make sure the WBEM
            * Server is running before trying this example. 
            */
           
            String host = "http://localhost:5988/cimv2";
            
            
            try {
                  /*
                  * Create an object path using the host variable.
                  */
                  CIMObjectPath cns = new CIMObjectPath(host);
 
   
                  /*
                  * Create the principal - used for authentication/authorization
                  */
                  UserPrincipal up = new UserPrincipal(username);
 
   
                  /*
                  * Create the credential - used for authentication/authorization
                  */
                  PasswordCredential pc = new PasswordCredential(password);
 
   
                  /*
                  * Add the principal and credential to the subject.
                  */
                  Subject s = new Subject();
                  s.getPrincipals().add(up);
                  s.getPrivateCredentials().add(pc);
 
   
                  /*
                  * Create a CIM client connection using the either CIM-XML or
                  * WS-Management protocol
                  */
                  clientObj = WBEMClientFactory.getClient("CIM-XML");
                  clientObj.initialize(cns, s, null);
            } catch (WBEMException e) 

The following example shows using the enumerateInstanceNames API in WBEMClient:

// get wbem client obj with specified protocol
	WBEMClient wbclient = WBEMClientFactory.getClient("CIM-XML");
 
   
// pass the CIM class & name space 
	
CIMObjectPath cop = new CIMObjectPath(className, namespace);
CloseableIterator<CIMObjectPath> ei = wbclient.enumerateInstanceNames(cop);

The following example shows using the enumerateInstances API in WBEMClient:

// get wbem client obj with specified protocol
	WBEMClient wbclient = WBEMClientFactory.getClient("CIM-XML");
 
   
// pass the CIM class 
CloseableIterator<CIMInstance> ei = wbclient. enumerateInstances(className,null);
		
		
}
 
   
 
   

The following example shows how to get association names:

// get wbem client obj with specified protocol
WBEMClient wbclient = WBEMClientFactory.getClient("CIM-XML");
	
CloseableIterator<CIMObjectPath> an =null;
	try{
			an = wbclient.associatorNames(cimop,null, resultClass, null, null);
		} catch (WBEMException e) {
			System.out.println(e);
		}
		

The following example shows how to get assoication Instances:

// get wbem client obj with specified protocol
WBEMClient wbclient = WBEMClientFactory.getClient("CIM-XML");
CloseableIterator<CIMInstance> a =null;
try{
a = wbclient.associatorInstances(cimop,null, resultClass, null, null, false, null);
	} catch (WBEMException e) {
		System.out.println(e);
	}

The following example shows how to use the invoke method and use the extrinsic methods of CIM Class:

.// get wbem client obj with specified protocol
WBEMClient wbclient = WBEMClientFactory.getClient("CIM-XML");
 
   
UnsignedInteger32 uInt32=(UnsignedInteger32) wbclient.invokeMethod(CIM_classname, 
methodname,inArgsAlias,outArgs);	
 
   
Sample code for registering listener for indications:
class Listener implements IndicationListener {
		......				
		public void indicationOccured(String pIndicationURL, CIMInstance pIndication) {
			CIMInstance indicationInstance = pIndication;
			System.out.println("Received indication instance: " + indicationInstance);		
		}
...}
 
   
 
   
 
   
 
   

The following example shows how to register listener indications:

//get the WBEMListener from the WBEMListenerFactory
WBEMListener listnr = WBEMListenerFactory.getListener("CIM-XML");
//add the listener to the port. use 0 to specify any available port
Int port = api.addListener(cl,0, "http");
// get wbem client obj with specified protocol
WBEMClient wbclient = WBEMClientFactory.getClient("CIM-XML");
//create the filter
String filter  ="SELECT SELECT * from CIM_InstIndication WHERE sourceInstance ISA 
CISCO_PhysicalComputerSystem";
CIMObjectPath op = new CIMObjectPath("CIM_IndicationFilter", namespace);
		CIMClass filterClass = client.getClass(op, false, true, false, null);
		CIMInstance filterInstance = filterClass.newInstance();
		CIMProperty<?>[] fcpArray = {
		new CIMProperty<String>("Query", CIMDataType.STRING_T, filter, false, false, 
null),
		new CIMProperty<String>("QueryLanguage", CIMDataType.STRING_T, "WQL", false, 
false, null) };
		filterInstance = filterInstance.deriveInstance(fcpArray);
		CIMObjectPath filterOP = client.createInstance(filterInstance);
 
   
//create the listener
CIMObjectPath op = new CIMObjectPath("CIM_ListenerDestinationCIMXML", namespace);
		CIMProperty<?>[] cpa = { new CIMProperty<String>("Destination",
				CIMDataType.STRING_T, "http://" + systemName + ":"+ port +"/", false, 
false, null) };
 
   
		// create new instance of listener
		CIMInstance listenerInstance = new CIMInstance(op, cpa);
		CIMObjectPath listenerOP = client.createInstance(listenerInstance);
//create a subscription, an association between the filter and listener.
CIMProperty<?>[] sicpArray = {
							new CIMProperty<CIMObjectPath>("Filter", new CIMDataType(
									filterOP.getObjectName()), filterOP, true, false, null),
							new CIMProperty<CIMObjectPath>("Handler", new CIMDataType(
									listenerOP.getObjectName()), listenerOP, true, false, 
null) };
					CIMInstance subscriptionInstance = new CIMInstance(
							new CIMObjectPath("CIM_IndicationSubscription", namespace, 
sicpArray), sicpArray);
					try {
						CIMObjectPath subscriptionOP = 
client.createInstance(subscriptionInstance);
					
					} catch (WBEMException e) {
						throw e;
					}
