NAME ^

BigIP::ParseConfig - F5/BigIP configuration parser

SYNOPSIS ^

  use BigIP::ParseConfig;
  
  # Module initialization
  my $bip = new BigIP::ParseConfig( '/config/bigip.conf' );
  
  # Iterate over pools
  foreach my $pool ( $bip->pools() ) {
      # Iterate over pool members
      foreach my $member ( $bip->members( $pool ) ) {
          # Change port from 80 to 443
          if ( $member /^(\d+\.\d+\.\d+\.\d+):80/ ) {
              push @members, "$1:443";
              my $change = 1;
          }
      }
      # Commit the change above (80->443)
      if ( $change ) {
          $bip->modify(
              type => 'pool',
              key  => $pool,
              members => [ @members ]
          );
      }
  }
  
  # Write out a new config file
  $bip->write( '/config/bigip.conf.new' );

DESCRIPTION ^

BigIP::ParseConfig provides a Perl interface to reading, writing, and manipulating configuration files used on F5 (BigIP) LTM network devices.

This module is currently a work-in-progress. Please e-mail with problems, bug fixes, comments and complaints.

CONSTRUCTOR ^

new ( FILE )

Create a new BigIP::ParseConfig object.

FILE refers to the bigip.conf configuration file, usually found at /config/bigip.conf.

Example

  $bip = BigIP::ParseConfig->new( '/config/bigip.conf' );

METHODS ^

monitors
nodes
partitions
pools
profiles
routes
rules
users
virtuals

List the names of all found objects of the referring method.

Examples

  @pools = $bip->pools();

  @virtuals = $bip->virtuals();
monitor ( MONITOR )
node ( NODE )
partition ( PARTITION )
pool ( POOL )
profile ( PROFILE )
route ( ROUTE )
rule ( RULE )
user ( USER )
virtual ( VIRTUAL )

Return a hash of the object specified.

Examples

  %sschneid = $bip->user( 'sschneid' );

  $monitor = $bip->pool( 'Production_LDAP_pool')->{'monitor'};
members ( POOL )

List the members of a specified pool.

Example

  @members = $bip->members( 'Production_LDAP_pool' );

Note that this is identical to using the pool method:

  @members = @{$bip->pool( 'Production_LDAP_pool' )->{'members'}};
modify ( OPTIONS )

Modify the attributes of a specified object. The following options are required:

type

The type of object being modified. Allowed types are: monitor, node, partition, pool, profile, route, user, virtual.

key

The key (name) of the object being modified.

Following type and key should be a string or a reference to an array of strings. See the example below for more details.

Examples

  $bip->modify(
      type => 'virtual',
      key  => 'Production_LDAP_vip',
      persist => 'cookie'
  );
  
  $bip->modify(
      type => 'pool',
      key  => 'Production_LDAP_pool',
      members => [ '192.168.0.1:636', '192.168.0.2:636' ]
  );
write ( FILE )

Write out a new configuration file. FILE refers to the bigip.conf configuration file, usually found at /config/bigip.conf.

Example

  $bip->write( '/config/bigip.conf.new' );
