This page is actively maintained by the Grid'5000 team. If you encounter problems, please report them (see the Support page). Additionally, as it is a wiki page, you are free to make minor corrections yourself if needed. If you would like to suggest a more fundamental change, please contact the Grid'5000 team.

Introduction

This tutorial will help you learning how to interact with Grid'5000's API, using simple example (with the curl tool to interact with the API, and sometimes jq to parse the JSON result). We target people who want a remote and programmatic access to the Grid'5000 tools in order to monitor nodes, submit jobs, and deploy environments.

Other aspects (how to access, versioning, content negotiating, authentication, …) of the API are mentioned in the general page about the Grid'5000 API.

The goal of this tutorial is not to present all the possibilities of the API, a specification of the API (which is more precise and complete) is available at https://api.grid5000.fr/doc/

Note.png Note

In this tutorial curl will be launched without requiring credentials (as if we were on a Grid'5000 frontend). Credentials are not needed from within Grid'5000, but are required from outside, as described here.

Reference API

The Reference API exposes Grid'5000's reference-repository: the single source of truth about sites, clusters, nodes, and network topology (the platform inventory on steroids).

For instance, /sites/rennes is a resource exposed by the Reference API. If you would like to get the representation of this resource as it is returned by the 3.0 version of the Grid'5000 API, the URL to enter in your HTTP client would be:

curl https://api.grid5000.fr/3.0/sites/rennes

As another example, to get the list of sites, the URL will be:

curl https://api.grid5000.fr/3.0/sites

For a particular cluster:

curl https://api.grid5000.fr/3.0/sites/rennes/clusters/paravance/

Versioning

Grid'5000's reference-repository (platform state/description) is stored in a central Grid5000 Git repository hosted at https://gitlab.inria.fr/grid5000/reference-repository and mirrored at https://github.com/grid5000/reference-repository.

The API offers the possibility to list the latest changes in the Grid'5000 infrastructure or to fetch resources description for a specific version or at a specific time.

List versions

Each URL resources can be suffixed with /versions to get a list of versions. For example:

$ curl https://api.grid5000.fr/3.0/sites/rennes/clusters/versions?pretty
 "total": 392,
 "offset": 0,
 "items": [
   {
     "uid": "68fdd053e6767ba2da1edf5105f57ff7b963f91f",
     "date": "Thu, 03 Dec 2020 09:56:38 GMT",
     "message": "[all] upgrade postinstall",
     "author": "Author",
     "type": "version",
     "links": [
       {
         "rel": "self",
         "href": "/3.0/sites/rennes/clusters/versions/68fdd053e6767ba2da1edf5105f57ff7b963f91f",
         "type": "application/vnd.grid5000.item+json"
       },
       {
         "rel": "parent",
         "href": "/3.0/sites/rennes/clusters",
         "type": "application/vnd.grid5000.item+json"
       }
     ]
   },
   {
     "uid": "5d9b32e3f6f0eb63608274d028994e99ea4c0698",
     "date": "Fri, 20 Nov 2020 17:20:33 GMT",
     "message": "[all] Add prometheus metrics to all clusters",
     "author": "Author",
     "type": "version",

And following the logic behind the API, each item can be accessed, like https://api.grid5000.fr/3.0/sites/rennes/clusters/versions/68fdd053e6767ba2da1edf5105f57ff7b963f91f

Git commits can be referenced with there uid, also known as SHA id.

Get resources for a version

To get a resource description for specific version of the reference-repository, the GET parameter version can be added to the request with the desired SHA id. For example, to get on previous description of the node dahu-29 of Grenoble corresponding the a version referenced with the 0c1396da414cca75faadd7b52fbb4fea11667213 SHA id, run:

$ curl "https://api.grid5000.fr/3.0/sites/grenoble/clusters/dahu/nodes/dahu-29?pretty&version=0c1396da414cca75faadd7b52fbb4fea11667213"
Get resources at a given time

It is also possible to Get the reference-repository at a specific time, using the date or timestamp *GET* parameters. With a UNIX timestamp:

$ curl "https://api.grid5000.fr/3.0/sites/grenoble/clusters/dahu/nodes/dahu-29.json?pretty&timestamp=1606400407"

Platform state and reproducibility

The platform characteristics can change over time and affect performances or other sensible elements, thus it is important to keep a reference of the state of the nodes you used at the time of an experiment.

At the moment, there is no automatic association between an experiment and the state of used nodes.

The current state (latest git commit identified by its SHA id) of the reference repository is exposed as the version returned by the Grid'5000 API. You are advised to retrieve it and keep it for later references to insure traceability and help reproducibility.

To do so, you can retrieve the version value provided by

curl  https://api.grid5000.fr/3.0/

Eg.

{
  "type": "grid",
  "uid": "grid5000",
  "version": "8eefb84931378cb1bed16b99675516ca5dd0536c",
  "timestamp": 1631889100,
  "links": [
    {
      "rel": "network_equipments",
      "href": "/3.0/network_equipments",
      "type": "application/vnd.grid5000.collection+json"
    },
    {
      "rel": "sites",
      "href": "/3.0/sites",
      "type": "application/vnd.grid5000.collection+json"
    },
    {
      "rel": "self",
      "type": "application/vnd.grid5000.item+json",
      "href": "/3.0/"
    },
    {
      "rel": "parent",
      "type": "application/vnd.grid5000.item+json",
      "href": "/3.0/"
    },
    {
      "rel": "version",
      "type": "application/vnd.grid5000.item+json",
      "href": "/3.0/versions/8eefb84931378cb1bed16b99675516ca5dd0536c"
    },
    {
      "rel": "versions",
      "type": "application/vnd.grid5000.collection+json",
      "href": "/3.0/versions"
    },
    {
      "rel": "users",
      "type": "application/vnd.grid5000.collection+json",
      "href": "/3.0/users"
    }
  ]
}

And save the SHA id of the version property.

Or just retrieve it with

curl -s  https://api.grid5000.fr/3.0/ | jq ".version"
"8eefb84931378cb1bed16b99675516ca5dd0536c"

That SHA id can be later used to retrieve the information about the former state of the platform, as explained in the previous section.

Jobs API

The Jobs API allows to reserve resources of the testbed, using OAR underneath. You can find more about OAR on the Advanced OAR page.

Job submission

This API is a thin wrapper on top of the OAR tool, therefore most of the oarsub options are supported.

For instance, let's submit a job with 2 nodes of the grenoble site, for 2 hours. And let's say we want to launch a useless script that just sleeps forever when the job starts:

$ curl -i https://api.grid5000.fr/3.0/sites/grenoble/jobs?pretty -X POST -H'Content-Type: application/json' -d '{"resources": "nodes=2,walltime=02:00", "command": "while(true); do sleep 5; echo \"awake\"; done"}'

   "dahu-3.grenoble.grid5000.fr",
   "dahu-32.grenoble.grid5000.fr"
 ]
}

Now the job is now in the running state, and you can find the list of nodes (independently of how many cores you reserved on each node) assigned to your job in the assigned_nodes property. Also note the resources_by_type property, which lists all the resources by type (nodes, vlans, subnets, disks). For nodes type, there is an entry per core reserved on the node.

Note.png Note

API resources (i.e. objects managed by the API) are not to be confused with OAR resources (i.e. compute nodes, CPUs, cores, GPUs, disks, or VLANs, or subnets).

You should now be able to connect to your nodes using the job uid and the oarsub tool (see the Advanced OAR page).

Job deletion

Since the previous job is doing nothing, we can delete it to free the nodes for other users. To do this, just send a http request with the DELETE method on the job URI:

$ curl  -i -X DELETE https://api.grid5000.fr/3.0/sites/grenoble/jobs/1965464
HTTP/1.1 202 Accepted

X-Api-Auth-Type: IDENT
X-Api-User-CN: auser
X-Remote-Ident: auser
X-Kadeploy-User: auser
Transfer-Encoding: chunked

Deletion is not immediate, that's why you receive a 202 Accepted status code, which means that the request will be handled shortly thereafter.

Deployments API

Deployments API allows deploying an environment on nodes, using Kadeploy. You can find more about Kadeploy on the Advanced Kadeploy page.

Reserve nodes

An OAR job of type deploy is required to perform a deployment. The following creates the job:

$ curl https://api.grid5000.fr/3.0/sites/grenoble/jobs -X POST -H 'Content-Type: application/json' -d '{"resources": "nodes=2", "types": ["deploy"], "command": "sleep 3600"}'

If everything goes well, you’ll receive a 201 created:

HTTP/1.1 201 Created

}

Using the job URI given in the Location header. We have to wait for the job to be running: It is possible to poll the Jobs API until the job is in running state:

$ curl -s https://api.grid5000.fr/3.0/sites/grenoble/jobs/1965460 | jq '.assigned_nodes,.state'
[
  "dahu-13.grenoble.grid5000.fr",
  "dahu-17.grenoble.grid5000.fr"
]
"running"

We also extract the assigned_nodes to use them later.

Deploy

Now, we use the nodes list provided by our OAR reservation, and launch a deployment:

$ export SSH_PUBLIC_KEY=`cat ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub` # replace with your Grid'5000 public key.
$ curl -i https://api.grid5000.fr/3.0/sites/grenoble/deployments -H'Content-Type: application/json' -d \
'{"nodes": ["dahu-13.grenoble.grid5000.fr", "dahu-17.grenoble.grid5000.fr"], "environment": "debian11-x64-min", "key": "$SSH_PUBLIC_KEY"}'

A 201 created response should be returned:

Again, we can use the URI given in the Location header to poll the deployment status :

$ curl -s https://api.grid5000.fr/3.0/sites/grenoble/deployments/D-9bd9e783-41fb-4b09-87e0-38522df086d8 | jq .status
"processing"

Later:

$ curl -s https://api.grid5000.fr/3.0/sites/grenoble/deployments/D-9bd9e783-41fb-4b09-87e0-38522df086d8 | jq .status
"processing"

Once the deployment is over, the nodes are available and running the deployed environment as OS.

Vlans API

The Vlans API allows to manage or to get information about resources bounded to VLAN management: like Grid'5000 different types of VLANs, nodes interfaces or allowed users on a particular VLAN. This API interacts with the KaVLAN tool. More information about KaVLAN can be found on the Advanced_KaVLAN page.

Reserve VLAN and nodes

We start by reserving two nodes and a local kavlan (VLAN of type local) on the Grenoble site, using the Jobs API:

$ curl -i https://api.grid5000.fr/3.0/sites/grenoble/jobs?pretty -X POST -H 'Content-Type: application/json' -d "{\"resources\":\"{type='kavlan-local'}/vlan=1,nodes=2\", \"types\": [\"deploy\"], \"command\": \"sleep 3600\"}"

     "type": "application/vnd.grid5000.item+json"
   }
 ],
 "resources_by_type": {
 },
 "assigned_nodes": [
  
 ]

We can then look at the job state (is it running?), the assigned nodes, and VLAN number:

$ curl -s https://api.grid5000.fr/3.0/sites/grenoble/jobs/1967224 | jq '.state,.assigned_nodes,.resources_by_type.vlans'
"running"
[
 "dahu-6.grenoble.grid5000.fr",
 "dahu-7.grenoble.grid5000.fr"
]
[
 "2"
]

In a normal workflow, an image should be deployed on the nodes. We will skip this part to go directly to the VLAN management.

The VLAN we reserved can also be found using the Vlans API (in addition to with the Jobs API):

$ curl https://api.grid5000.fr/3.0/sites/grenoble/vlans/users/auser?pretty
{
 "uid": "auser",
 "vlans": [
   "2",
   "1"
 ],
 "links": [
   {
     "rel": "self",
     "href": "/3.0/sites/grenoble/vlans/users/auser",
     "type": "application/vnd.grid5000.item+json"
   },
   {
     "rel": "parent",
     "href": "/3.0/sites/grenoble/vlans/users",
     "type": "application/vnd.grid5000.collection+json"
   }
 ]
}

In this response, we also have the VLAN number 1, which is part of another reservation we made.

The status of a given user for a specific VLAN can be found with this query:

$ curl https://api.grid5000.fr/3.0/sites/grenoble/vlans/2/users/auser?pretty

{
 "uid": "auser",
 "status": "authorized",
 "links": [
   {
     "rel": "self",
     "href": "/3.0/sites/grenoble/vlans/2/users/auser",
     "type": "application/vnd.grid5000.item+json"
   },
   {
     "rel": "parent",
     "href": "/3.0/sites/grenoble/vlans/2/users",
     "type": "application/vnd.grid5000.collection+json"
   }
 ]
}

And a list of users with rights on a VLAN is given by the following query:

curl https://api.grid5000.fr/3.0/sites/grenoble/vlans/2/users</code>

(in fact with the current configuration on Grid'5000 only one user can have rights on a VLAN).

Manage nodes

To add our nodes to the reserved VLAN, we have to make a POST request to the API:

$ curl -X POST https://api.grid5000.fr/3.0/sites/grenoble/vlans/2/nodes?pretty -H "Content-Type: application/json" -d '["dahu-5.grenoble.grid5000.fr","dahu-6.grenoble.grid5000.fr"]'
{
 "dahu-5.grenoble.grid5000.fr": {
   "status": "success",
   "message": "Successfully added to vlan"
 },
 "dahu-6.grenoble.grid5000.fr": {
   "status": "success",
   "message": "Successfully added to vlan"
 }
}

We can see them by listing nodes in the VLAN:

$ curl https://api.grid5000.fr/3.0/sites/grenoble/vlans/2/nodes?pretty
{
 "total": 2,
 "offset": 0,
 "items": [
   {
     "uid": "dahu-5.grenoble.grid5000.fr",
     "vlan": "2",
     "links": [
       {
         "rel": "self",
         "href": "/3.0/sites/grenoble/vlans/nodes/dahu-5.grenoble.grid5000.fr",
         "type": "application/vnd.grid5000.item+json"
       },
       {
         "rel": "parent",
         "href": "/3.0/sites/grenoble/vlans/nodes",
         "type": "application/vnd.grid5000.collection+json"
       }
     ]
   },
   {
     "uid": "dahu-6.grenoble.grid5000.fr",
     "vlan": "2",
     "links": [
       {
         "rel": "self",
         "href": "/3.0/sites/grenoble/vlans/nodes/dahu-6.grenoble.grid5000.fr",
         "type": "application/vnd.grid5000.item+json"
       },
       {
         "rel": "parent",
         "href": "/3.0/sites/grenoble/vlans/nodes",
         "type": "application/vnd.grid5000.collection+json"
       }
     ]
   }
 ],
 "links": [
   {
     "rel": "self",
     "href": "/3.0/sites/grenoble/vlans/2/nodes",
     "type": "application/vnd.grid5000.collection+json"
   },
   {
     "rel": "parent",
     "href": "/3.0/sites/grenoble/vlans/2",
     "type": "application/vnd.grid5000.item+json"
   }
 ]
}

A list of all the known nodes in Kavlan and their current VLAN assignation is also available, with the following query:

$ curl https://api.grid5000.fr/3.0/sites/grenoble/vlans/nodes?pretty
{
 "total": 52,
 "offset": 0,
 "items": [
   {
     "uid": "dahu-1.grenoble.grid5000.fr",
     "vlan": "DEFAULT",

         "rel": "self",
         "href": "/3.0/sites/grenoble/vlans/nodes/dahu-1.grenoble.grid5000.fr",
         "type": "application/vnd.grid5000.item+json"
       },
       {
         "rel": "parent",
         "href": "/3.0/sites/grenoble/vlans/nodes",
         "type": "application/vnd.grid5000.collection+json"
       }
     ]
   },
   {
     "uid": "dahu-10.grenoble.grid5000.fr",
     "vlan": "DEFAULT",
     "links": [
       {
         "rel": "self",
         "href": "/3.0/sites/grenoble/vlans/nodes/dahu-10.grenoble.grid5000.fr",
         "type": "application/vnd.grid5000.item+json"
       },
       {
         "rel": "parent",
         "href": "/3.0/sites/grenoble/vlans/nodes",
         "type": "application/vnd.grid5000.collection+json"
       }
     ]
   },
  …

Manage dhcp server

Kavlan offers the possibility to have a dhcpd service running for a particular vlan.

If we don't want to use it, we can stop it with a simple PUT query:

curl -X PUT https://api.grid5000.fr/3.0/sites/grenoble/vlans/2/dhcpd -H "Content-Type: application/json" -d '{"action":"stop"}'

Metrics APIs

The metrics API uses Kwollect and has a dedicated documentation.

Status API

The Status API allows getting OAR resources status and reservation (associated job), for a site or a cluster.

Cluster status

$ curl https://api.grid5000.fr/3.0/sites/grenoble/clusters/yeti/status?pretty
 "uid": 1607009770,
 "links": [
   {
     "rel": "self",

   },
   {
     "rel": "parent",
     "href": "/3.0/sites/grenoble/clusters/yeti",
     "type": "application/vnd.grid5000.item+json"
   }
 ],
 "disks": {
   "sdd.yeti-1.grenoble.grid5000.fr": {
     "hard": "alive",
     "soft": "free",
     "diskpath": "/dev/disk/by-path/pci-0000:18:00.0-scsi-0:0:3:0",
     "reservations": [
      
     ]
   },
   "sdd.yeti-2.grenoble.grid5000.fr": {
     "hard": "alive",
     "soft": "free",
     "diskpath": "/dev/disk/by-path/pci-0000:18:00.0-scsi-0:0:3:0",
     "reservations": [
      
     ]
   },
  …
 "nodes": {
   "yeti-1.grenoble.grid5000.fr": {
     "hard": "standby",
     "soft": "free",
     "comment": "OK",
     "reservations": [
        
     ],
     "free_slots": 64,
     "freeable_slots": 0,
     "busy_slots": 0
   },
   …

The status of a cluster contains the status of nodes and disks (if the cluster has reservable disks).

Site status

$ curl https://api.grid5000.fr/3.0/sites/grenoble/clusters/status?pretty

On the site level, the Status API gives the status of the nodes, disks, vlans, and subnets OAR resources.

Stitching API
