swiftclient

OpenStack Swift Python client binding.

swiftclient.client

OpenStack Swift client library used internally

class swiftclient.client.Connection(authurl=None, user=None, key=None, retries=5, preauthurl=None, preauthtoken=None, snet=False, starting_backoff=1, max_backoff=64, tenant_name=None, os_options=None, auth_version='1', cacert=None, insecure=False, ssl_compression=True, retry_on_ratelimit=False, timeout=None)

Bases: object

Convenience class to make requests that will also retry the request

Requests will have an X-Auth-Token header whose value is either the preauthtoken or a token obtained from the auth service using the user credentials provided as args to the constructor. If os_options includes a service_username then requests will also have an X-Service-Token header whose value is a token obtained from the auth service using the service credentials. In this case the request url will be set to the storage_url obtained from the auth service for the service user, unless this is overridden by a preauthurl.

Parameters:
  • authurl – authentication URL
  • user – user name to authenticate as
  • key – key/password to authenticate with
  • retries – Number of times to retry the request before failing
  • preauthurl – storage URL (if you have already authenticated)
  • preauthtoken – authentication token (if you have already authenticated) note authurl/user/key/tenant_name are not required when specifying preauthtoken
  • snet – use SERVICENET internal network default is False
  • starting_backoff – initial delay between retries (seconds)
  • max_backoff – maximum delay between retries (seconds)
  • auth_version – OpenStack auth version, default is 1.0
  • tenant_name – The tenant/account name, required when connecting to an auth 2.0 system.
  • os_options – The OpenStack options which can have tenant_id, auth_token, service_type, endpoint_type, tenant_name, object_storage_url, region_name, service_username, service_project_name, service_key
  • insecure – Allow to access servers without checking SSL certs. The server’s certificate will not be verified.
  • ssl_compression – Whether to enable compression at the SSL layer. If set to ‘False’ and the pyOpenSSL library is present an attempt to disable SSL compression will be made. This may provide a performance increase for https upload/download operations.
  • retry_on_ratelimit – by default, a ratelimited connection will raise an exception to the caller. Setting this parameter to True will cause a retry after a backoff.
  • timeout – The connect timeout for the HTTP connection.

swiftclient.client.http_log(args, kwargs, resp, body)
swiftclient.client.logger_settings = {'redact_sensitive_headers': True, 'reveal_sensitive_prefix': 16}

Default behaviour is to redact header values known to contain secrets, such as X-Auth-Key and X-Auth-Token. Up to the first 16 chars may be revealed.

To disable, set the value of redact_sensitive_headers to False.

When header redaction is enabled, reveal_sensitive_prefix configures the maximum length of any sensitive header data sent to the logs. If the header is less than twice this length, only int(len(value)/2) chars will be logged; if it is less than 15 chars long, even less will be logged.

swiftclient.multithreading

class swiftclient.multithreading.ConnectionThreadPoolExecutor(create_connection, max_workers)

Bases: concurrent.futures.thread.ThreadPoolExecutor

A wrapper class to maintain a pool of connections alongside the thread pool. We start by creating a priority queue of connections, and each job submitted takes one of those connections (initialising if necessary) and passes it as the first arg to the executed function.

At the end of execution that connection is returned to the queue.

By using a PriorityQueue we avoid creating more connections than required. We will only create as many connections as are required concurrently.

class swiftclient.multithreading.MultiThreadingManager(create_connection, segment_threads=10, object_dd_threads=10, object_uu_threads=10, container_threads=10)

Bases: object

One object to manage context for multi-threading. This should make bin/swift less error-prone and allow us to test this code.

Parameters:
  • segment_threads – The number of threads allocated to segment uploads
  • object_dd_threads – The number of threads allocated to object download/delete jobs
  • object_uu_threads – The number of threads allocated to object upload/update based jobs
  • container_threads – The number of threads allocated to container/account level jobs
class swiftclient.multithreading.OutputManager(print_stream=None, error_stream=None)

Bases: object

One object to manage and provide helper functions for output.

This object is a context manager and returns itself into the context. When entering the context, two printing threads are created (see below) and they are waited on and cleaned up when exiting the context.

Also, thread-safe printing to two streams is provided. The print_msg() method will print to the supplied print_stream (defaults to sys.stdout) and the error() method will print to the supplied error_stream (defaults to sys.stderr). Both of these printing methods will format the given string with any supplied *args (a la printf). On Python 2, Unicode messages are encoded to utf8.

The attribute self.error_count is incremented once per error message printed, so an application can tell if any worker threads encountered exceptions or otherwise called error() on this instance. The swift command-line tool uses this to exit non-zero if any error strings were printed.

Parameters:
  • print_stream – The stream to which print_msg() sends formatted messages.
  • error_stream – The stream to which error() sends formatted messages.

On Python 2, Unicode messages are encoded to utf8.

DEFAULT_OFFSET = 14
error(msg, *fmt_args)
get_error_count()
print_items(items, offset=14, skip_missing=False)
print_msg(msg, *fmt_args)
print_raw(data)
warning(msg, *fmt_args)

swiftclient.utils

Miscellaneous utility functions for use with Swift.

class swiftclient.utils.LengthWrapper(readable, length, md5=False)

Bases: object

Wrap a filelike object with a maximum length.

Fix for https://github.com/kennethreitz/requests/issues/1648. It is recommended to use this class only on files opened in binary mode.

Parameters:
  • readable – The filelike object to read from.
  • length – The maximum amount of content that can be read from the filelike object before it is simulated to be empty.
  • md5 – Flag to enable calculating the MD5 of the content as it is read.
get_md5sum()
read(size=-1)
reset
class swiftclient.utils.NoopMD5(*a, **kw)

Bases: object

hexdigest(*a, **kw)
update(*a, **kw)
class swiftclient.utils.ReadableToIterable(content, chunk_size=65536, md5=False)

Bases: object

Wrap a filelike object and act as an iterator.

It is recommended to use this class only on files opened in binary mode. Due to the Unicode changes in Python 3, files are now opened using an encoding not suitable for use with the md5 class and because of this hit the exception on every call to next. This could cause problems, especially with large files and small chunk sizes.

Parameters:
  • content – The filelike object that is yielded from.
  • chunk_size – The max size of each yielded item.
  • md5 – Flag to enable calculating the MD5 of the content as it is yielded.
get_md5sum()
next()
swiftclient.utils.config_true_value(value)

Returns True if the value is either True or a string in TRUE_VALUES. Returns False otherwise. This function comes from swift.common.utils.config_true_value()

swiftclient.utils.generate_temp_url(path, seconds, key, method, absolute=False)

Generates a temporary URL that gives unauthenticated access to the Swift object.

Parameters:
  • path – The full path to the Swift object. Example: /v1/AUTH_account/c/o.
  • seconds – The amount of time in seconds the temporary URL will be valid for.
  • key – The secret temporary URL key set on the Swift cluster. To set a key, run ‘swift post -m “Temp-URL-Key: <substitute tempurl key here>”’
  • method – A HTTP method, typically either GET or PUT, to allow for this temporary URL.
Raises :

ValueError if seconds is not a positive integer

Raises :

TypeError if seconds is not an integer

Returns:

the path portion of a temporary URL

swiftclient.utils.iter_wrapper(iterable)
swiftclient.utils.n_at_a_time(seq, n)
swiftclient.utils.n_groups(seq, n)
swiftclient.utils.parse_api_response(headers, body)
swiftclient.utils.prt_bytes(num_bytes, human_flag)

convert a number > 1024 to printable format, either in 4 char -h format as with ls -lh or return as 12 char right justified string

swiftclient.utils.report_traceback()

Reports a timestamp and full traceback for a given exception.

Returns:Full traceback and timestamp.
