Module netapp_ontap.resources.snapshot_policy

Copyright © 2022 NetApp Inc. All rights reserved.

Overview

In ONTAP, scheduled Snapshot copy creation works based on Snapshot copy policies. ONTAP provides three cluster-wide Snapshot copy policies: "default", "default-1weekly" and "none". A Snapshot copy policy can have more than one schedule associated with it. A Snapshot copy policy can be linked to a storage object and based on the schedule in the policy, Snapshot copies will be created on the object at that interval. Each schedule in a Snapshot copy policy has a Snapshot copy name prefix attached to it. Every Snapshot copy created using this policy will have this prefix in its name. There is also a retention count associated with every schedule. This count indicates the maximum number of Snapshot copies that can exist for a given schedule. Once the Snapshot copy count reaches the retention count, on the next create operation, the oldest Snapshot copy is deleted.

Snapshot copy policy APIs

The following APIs are used to perform operations related to Snapshot copy policy information:

  • POST /api/storage/snapshot-policies
  • GET /api/storage/snapshot-policies
  • GET /api/storage/snapshot-policies/{uuid}
  • PATCH /api/storage/snapshot-policies/{uuid}
  • DELETE /api/storage/snapshot-policies/{uuid}

Examples

Creating a Snapshot copy policy

The POST operation is used to create a Snapshot copy policy with the specified attributes.

from netapp_ontap import HostConnection
from netapp_ontap.resources import SnapshotPolicy

with HostConnection("<mgmt-ip>", username="admin", password="password", verify=False):
    resource = SnapshotPolicy()
    resource.name = "new_policy"
    resource.enabled = True
    resource.comment = "policy comment"
    resource.copies = [{"schedule": {"name": "5min"}, "count": "5", "prefix": "xyz"}]
    resource.svm = {"name": "vs0"}
    resource.post(hydrate=True)
    print(resource)

SnapshotPolicy(
    {
        "enabled": True,
        "copies": [{"count": 5, "schedule": {"name": "5min"}}],
        "svm": {"name": "vs0"},
        "uuid": "a69d8173-450c-11e9-aa44-005056bbc848",

Retrieving the attributes of a specific Snapshot copy policy

The GET operation is used to retrieve the attributes of a specific Snapshot copy policy.

from netapp_ontap import HostConnection
from netapp_ontap.resources import SnapshotPolicy

with HostConnection("<mgmt-ip>", username="admin", password="password", verify=False):

with HostConnection("<mgmt-ip>", username="admin", password="password", verify=False):
    resource = SnapshotPolicy(uuid="ae9e65c4-4506-11e9-aa44-005056bbc848")
    resource.delete()

Classes

class SnapshotPolicy (*args, **kwargs)

The Snapshot copy policy object is associated with a read-write volume used to create and delete Snapshot copies at regular intervals.

Initialize the instance of the resource.

Any keyword arguments are set on the instance as properties. For example, if the class was named 'MyResource', then this statement would be true:

MyResource(name='foo').name == 'foo'

Args

*args
Each positional argument represents a parent key as used in the URL of the object. That is, each value will be used to fill in a segment of the URL which refers to some parent object. The order of these arguments must match the order they are specified in the URL, from left to right.
**kwargs
each entry will have its key set as an attribute name on the instance and its value will be the value of that attribute.

Ancestors

Static methods

def count_collection(*args, connection: HostConnection = None, **kwargs) -> int

Fetch a count of all objects of this type from the host.

This calls GET on the object to determine the number of records. It is more efficient than calling get_collection() because it will not construct any objects. Query parameters can be passed in as kwargs to determine a count of objects that match some filtered criteria.

Args

*args
Each entry represents a parent key which is used to build the path to the child object. If the URL definition were /api/foos/{foo.name}/bars, then to get the count of bars for a particular foo, the foo.name value should be passed.
connection
The HostConnection object to use for this API call. If unset, tries to use the connection which is set globally for the library or from the current context.
**kwargs
Any key/value pairs passed will be sent as query parameters to the host. These query parameters can affect the count. A return_records query param will be ignored.

Returns

On success, returns an integer count of the objects of this type. On failure, returns -1.

Raises

NetAppRestError: If the API call returned a status code >= 400, or if there is no connection available to use either passed in or on the library.

def delete_collection(*args, records: Iterable[_ForwardRef('SnapshotPolicy')] = None, body: Union[Resource, dict] = None, poll: bool = True, poll_interval: Union[int, NoneType] = None, poll_timeout: Union[int, NoneType] = None, connection: HostConnection = None, **kwargs) -> NetAppResponse

Find an instance of an object on the host given a query.

The host will be queried with the provided key/value pairs to find a matching resource. If 0 are found, None will be returned. If more than 1 is found, an error will be raised or returned. If there is exactly 1 matching record, then it will be returned.

Args

*args
Each entry represents a parent key which is used to build the path to the child object. If the URL definition were /api/foos/{foo.name}/bars, then to find a bar for a particular foo, the foo.name value should be passed.
connection
The HostConnection object to use for this API call. If unset, tries to use the connection which is set globally for the library or from the current context.
**kwargs
Any key/value pairs passed will be sent as query parameters to the host.

Returns

A Resource object containing the details of the object or None if no matches were found.

Raises

def get_collection(*args, connection: HostConnection = None, max_records: int = None, **kwargs) -> Iterable[Resource]

Retrieves a collection of Snapshot copy policies.

  • snapshot policy show

Learn more


Fetch a list of all objects of this type from the host.

This is a lazy fetch, making API calls only as necessary when the result of this call is iterated over. For instance, if max_records is set to 5, then iterating over the collection causes an API call to be sent to the server once for every 5 records. If the client stops iterating before getting to the 6th record, then no additional API calls are made.

Args

*args
Each entry represents a parent key which is used to build the path to the child object. If the URL definition were /api/foos/{foo.name}/bars, then to get the collection of bars for a particular foo, the foo.name value should be passed.
connection
The HostConnection object to use for this API call. If unset, tries to use the connection which is set globally for the library or from the current context.
max_records
The maximum number of records to return per call
**kwargs
Any key/value pairs passed will be sent as query parameters to the host.

Returns

A list of Resource objects

Raises

NetAppRestError: If there is no connection available to use either passed in or on the library. This would be not be raised when get_collection() is called, but rather when the result is iterated.
