Adds a Python module process.
|process||User application process.|
|name||Name of the user application process. Range 1-31.|
|python-module||The Python module to import and run.|
|python-module||The module relative to /usr/local/cfg.|
|auto||Create a daemon process and start it immediately.|
|on-demand||Create a run-to-completion process and use \start process\.|
|node||Node in stack in which to create the process.|
|node||Primary node, backup node, or both (default is primary).|
|vr||Virtual router in which to start the process.|
|vr-name||Virtual router name.|
VR-Mgmt is the default VR used if not specified.
If no selection is made, the process runs on-demand.
If no node is selected, the default is the primary node.
The executable must be uploaded to /usr/local/cfg using the normal mechanisms (for example, TFTP).
From EPM‘s perspective, a Python-based process is an instance of the “expy” executable with some arguments, namely the Python module.
This command adds a Python module. To add a C executable processes, use the create process executable command.
A process must first exist on the primary node if you are creating it only on the backup node, If a process already exists on the primary node, you cannot create it on both the primary and secondary node. Also, if the backup node is down, a new process cannot be created on it.
The following are examples of create process python-module commands.
python-module foo_program start auto vr vr-default create process foo_user1 python-module “foo.run” “arg1 to foo.main” create process foo_user2 python-module “foo.noargs.needed” create process foo_user3 python-module “foo.daemon” start auto “arg1 to foo.main”
Error: Process name %s is invalid. Process names must begin with a letter, contain only alphanumeric and “_” characters, and be less than 32 characters long.
This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 15.7.
