perfSONAR_PS::Services::MA::CircuitStatus - A module that provides methods for an E2EMon Compatible MP.


This module aims to offer simple methods for dealing with requests for information, and the related tasks of interacting with backend storage.


use perfSONAR_PS::Services::MA::CircuitStatus;

my %conf = readConfiguration();

my %ns = ( nmwg => "", ifevt => "", nmtm => "", nmwgtopo3 => "", nmtl2 => "", nmtl3 => "", );

my $ma = perfSONAR_PS::Services::MA::CircuitStatus->new(\%conf, \%ns);

# or # $ma = perfSONAR_PS::Services::MA::CircuitStatus->new; # $ma->setConf(\%conf); # $ma->setNamespaces(\%ns);

if ($ma->init != 0) { print "Error: couldn't initialize measurement archive\n"; exit(-1); }

while(1) { my $request = $ma->receive; $ma->handleRequest($request); }


The offered API is simple, but offers the key functions we need in a measurement archive.


       Initializes the MP and validates or fills in entries in the
    configuration file. Returns 0 on success and -1 on failure.


    Grabs an incoming message from transport object to begin processing. It
    completes the processing if the message was handled by a lower layer.
    If not, it returns the Request structure.

handleRequest($self, $request)

    Handles the specified request returned from receive()


    Validates that the message is one that we can handle, calls the
    appropriate function for the message type and builds the response

parseRequest($self, $request)

    Goes through each metadata/data pair, extracting the eventType and
    calling the function associated with that eventType.

handlePathStatusRequest($self, $time)

    Performs the required steps to handle a path status message: contacts
    the topology service to resolve node information, contacts the LS if
    needed to find the link status service, contacts the link status
    service and munges the results.


    Takes the set of nodes and outputs them in an E2EMon compatiable


    Takes the set of links and outputs them in an E2EMon compatiable


    Parses the links configuration file. It returns an array containg up to
    five values. The first value is the status and can be one of 0 or -1.
    If it is -1, parsing the configuration file failed and the error
    message is in the next value. If the status is 0, the next 4 values are
    the domain name, a pointer to the set of links, a pointer to a hash
    containg the set of nodes to lookup in the topology service and a
    pointer to a hash containing the set of links to lookup in the status

parseTopology($topology, $nodes, $domain_name)

    Parses the output from the topology service and fills in the details
    for the nodes. The domain name is passed so that when a node has no
    name specified in the configuration file, it can be constructd based on
    the domain name and the node's name in the topology service.
