The Python version of the Open Baton vnfm-sdk

Project Description

Python version of the vnfm-sdk

This project contains a vnfm sdk for python projects.

Technical Requirements

This section covers the requirements that must be met by the python-vnfm-sdk in order to satisfy the demands for such a component:

  • python 2.7
  • pika

How to install python-vfnm-sdk

The safer way to start is to clone the sdk and then use a virtual environment. Once activated, just run

git clone
python build
python install

After that, in this virtual environment a module interfaces will be available from which you can inherit the AbstractVnfm class in this way:

import logging

from interfaces.AbstractVnfmABC import AbstractVnfm

class PythonVnfm(AbstractVnfm):

    def upgradeSoftware(self):

    def updateSoftware(self):

    def terminate(self, virtualNetworkFunctionRecord):

    def scale(self, scaleOut, virtualNetworkFunctionRecord, component, scripts, dependency):

    def query(self):

    def notifyChange(self):

    def modify(self, virtualNetworkFunctionRecord, dependency):

    def instantiate(self, virtualNetworkFunctionRecord, scripts, vimInstances):

    def heal(self, virtualNetworkFunctionRecord, vnfcInstanceComponent, cause):

    def checkInstantiationFeasibility(self):

if __name__ == "__main__":
    vnfm = PythonVnfm("python")

What is Open Baton?

OpenBaton is an open source project providing a comprehensive implementation of the ETSI Management and Orchestration (MANO) specification.

Open Baton is a ETSI NFV MANO compliant framework. Open Baton was part of the OpenSDNCore ( project started almost three years ago by Fraunhofer FOKUS with the objective of providing a compliant implementation of the ETSI NFV specification.

Open Baton is easily extensible. It integrates with OpenStack, and provides a plugin mechanism for supporting additional VIM types. It supports Network Service management either using a generic VNFM or interoperating with VNF-specific VNFM. It uses different mechanisms (REST or PUB/SUB) for interoperating with the VNFMs. It integrates with additional components for the runtime management of a Network Service. For instance, it provides autoscaling and fault management based on monitoring information coming from the the monitoring system available at the NFVI level.
