What you’ll learn

Python Network Programming – Part 2: Multivendor Environment Course

  • Use various Python tools/modules to handle network devices more easily and without writing a lot of Python code
  • Use various Python tools/modules to handle network devices from several networking vendors: Cisco (IOS, IOS XE, IOS XR), Juniper, Arista, HP, Avaya, and Netscreen.
  • Parse router/switch configuration files, extract needed information and use it for auditing the network
  • Easily manage access lists (ACLs) using Python tools, then convert the access lists between various vendor formats
  • Execute CLI commands on several network devices simultaneously, even on multiple devices from various vendors
  • Automatically execute CLI commands on network devices upon login
  • Discover some very useful Python network tools every network programmer should use on a daily basis to automate or simplify some network tasks
  • Download and use the pre-configured Ubuntu 15.10 VM however you like
  • Download and use any materials and code samples however you like

Requirements

  • You should already be familiar with Python 2 syntax: functions, if, for, while, string and file operations, etc.
  • You should already be familiar with networking concepts like SSH, Telnet, ACLs (Access Control Lists), VMs (Virtual Machines)
  • I will provide a fully configured virtual machine (Ubuntu 15.10, improved version of the VM in Part 1 of the course) with all the necessary software (Python Modules, Network Tools, dependencies, etc.). This way you can save time and start programming network devices as soon as possible
  • For teaching network programming concepts and tools on vendors like Cisco (IOS), Juniper (JunOS and ScreenOS), HP (ProCurve OS) and Avaya (ERS OS), I will use the Ubuntu 15.10 VM and physical devices in my lab, since these vendors do not provide virtualized environments for emulating their router/switch operating systems
  • The network programming concepts and tools on other vendors, like Cisco (IOS XE and IOS XR) and Arista (vEOS), I will use virtual machines that they provide on their official websites and I will guide you through properly downloading, installing and setting them up on your own computer, into VirtualBox
  • For running the Ubuntu 15.10 Virtual Machine I provide, dedicating 2 GB of RAM will be more than enough. For running the Arista vEOS VM, you should allocate another 1 GB of RAM, throughout the Arista section of the course. The emulating Cisco IOS XE and IOS XR, you will need 2+ GB additional RAM memory.

  • I am going to use only free software throughout the course: VirtualBox, Linux, free VMs, etc.

Description

This course covers many networking vendors and network operating systems:

  • Cisco IOS
  • Cisco IOS XE
  • The Cisco IOS XR
  • Juniper JunOS
  • Juniper (Netscreen) ScreenOS
  • Arista EOS
  • HP ProCurve OS
  • Avaya ERS OS

 What’s so special about this course?

This hands-on Python Network Programming training walks you through lots of scenarios, networking vendors and useful tools to help you become the network engineer of 2017.

Well, let me tell you what’s this course all about:

  •  Learning to use amazing Python libraries and tools to manage network devices easily and without writing too much code.
  •  Connecting remotely to network devices and read/extract/display/store command output, using interactive Python scripts, on Cisco IOS, Cisco IOS XE, Cisco IOS XR, Juniper JunOS, Juniper (Netscreen) ScreenOS, Arista EOS, HP ProCurve OS and Avaya ERS OS.
  • Configuring (one or more) network devices remotely, using interactive Python scripts, either by specifying the commands at the prompt OR asking the script to read them from one or more text files, on Cisco IOS, Cisco IOS XE, Cisco IOS XR, Juniper JunOS, Juniper (Netscreen) ScreenOS, Arista EOS, HP ProCurve OS and Avaya ERS OS.
  • Executing configuration commands on multiple network devices from multiple vendors simultaneously.
  • Working with a device inventory in XML/JSON/CSV format and network metadata, while easily counting your registered network devices, getting device information by IP address, searching and listing device information, checking IP reachability and SSH availability and much more, using a simple but efficient tool in the Python interpreter or Linux shell.
  • Managing network device credentials in a centralized, encrypted file.

  • Managing access lists and converting access lists from one format to another using a very efficient tool (Example: Converting a Cisco IOS ACL to a Juniper JunOS ACL with a single command).
  • Automatically executing commands upon device login, right from the Linux shell.
  • Getting device interface information fast, right from the Linux shell and saving the information to local storage.
  • Parsing locally stored Cisco, Juniper, Arista, and HP configuration files and extracting various pieces of information, using a very straightforward Python module.
  • Managing device configuration changes using a script that regularly saves the configuration files from your network devices to the local system, compares them with previous file versions, builds a report with all the differences and either store the report locally or emails the report to the network administrator’s email address(es).
  • Performing various small network tests and operations using the Python interpreter.

Who this course is for:

  • Network Administrators, Network (Systems) Engineers, Network (Service) Technicians, Network Analysts, Network Managers
