OCUM vApp 9.4P1 alert script to make REST calls to WFA workflow

Hi there,

I have been working on a script based on the Self healing whitepaper - https://www.netapp.com/us/media/tr-4585.pdf

The script is for OCUM inode alert to trigger a WFA work flow to fix inodes

Since we are using the vApp I had to use a perl scrip instead of a  power shell script

 

Thanks to the white paper and information available on this community i was able to get  WFA workflow working to fix the inodes , but having issues with the perl script on OCUM that is needed to make the REST API call.

 Took help from some of the debugging instructions shared by @mbeattie in a few different posts here and identified that the issue was because REST/Client.pm was not available on the OCUM vApp that is needed by the perl script.

 

Debug error message when the perl script is executed:

2019-07-03 11:01:43 [INFO ] [ScriptExecutor-2] [AlertScriptService:108] - Script execution of file : OCUM_WFA_Inode_Event.pl for EventID : 270028 in progress..
Can't locate REST/Client.pm in @INC (you may need to install the REST::Client module) (@INC contains: /etc/perl /usr/local/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/perl/5.24.1 /usr/local/share/perl/5.24.1 /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/perl5/5.24 /usr/share/perl5 /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/perl/5.24 /usr/share/perl/5.24 /usr/local/lib/site_perl /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/perl-base) at /opt/netapp/ocum/scriptPlugin/OCUM_WFA_Inode_Event.pl line 7.

 

I tried installing REST::Client on the vApp using CPAN , but getting below error :

cpan[1]> install REST::Client

I believe this is because the way vApp is designed . That is locked down to prevent outside softwares or patches being applied ? But shouldnt making REST API calls be one of the basic functionalities that must be built in into OCUM ?

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Re: OCUM vApp 9.4P1 alert script to make REST calls to WFA workflow

Hi CJ

 

Yes it is certainly frustrating, unfortunately the OCUM vApp is closed architecture (and i doubt that is going to change), installation of third party software in the vApp (whilst "technically" possible) is NOT supported. The vApp does not include PERL or the modules required to invoke REST API's so the script plugin isn't much use if using the OCUM vApp.

 

However as an alternative it is possilble to poll OCUM events via the REST API therefore if you have an orchetration application (such as WFA) you can configure a schedule to check for any events and process them as required. This isn't as quite as efficent as directly using the script plugin if OCUM is installed on Windows or RHEL to process events in near to real-time however in general it does suffice for the majority of requirements.

 

Here is some "example" source code to get you started if you wanted to poll the OCUM REST API events and process any new events that match a specific event type (in the example i'm process the "volume" resource type where the event name is "inodes full" or "inodes nearly full").

 

This method enables customers who are using the OCUM vApp to perform self-healing but on scheduled basis. EG you could poll OCUM ever 15-30 minutes (hourly is probably sufficent) using WFA (or worst case a schedule task). If new events are identified that match the types you want to process then the scheduled WFA workflow will invoke a sub workflow to resolve the event.

 

Hope this helps? Any questions please let me know.

Re: OCUM vApp 9.4P1 alert script to make REST calls to WFA workflow

Thanks Matt,

It does sound like that's a road block on performing real time self healing using OCUM vApp. Hope the modules and plugins needed to invoke REST API will be included in future vApp releases.

 

Thanks for the sample code to poll  the OCUM REST API events. Yes the concern would be that this might not be as efficient as OCUM invoking a WFA workflow directly. As the OCUM by itself includes the 15 mins polling interval for Cluster events , An added  schedule to poll OCUM events would add into the resolution time. Don't know how this will fare in instances where the inode count increasing rapidly with a bulk of very small files being copied into volumes. Might have to reduce the threshold of "Inodes Nearly full" events maybe.

 

I will test polling the OCUM REST API events and update how it goes. Will also explore the option of migrating the OCUM instance over to a Unix server.

 

Cheers

CJ
