NAME

       globus_net_manager_python - Net Manager Python Module.

SYNOPSIS

Detailed Description

       Net Manager Python Module.

       The Net Manager Python module is an example module that provides basic Python language
       bindings to the Network Manager callout functionality. To use this example, define a
       python module that implements the some subset of the following functions:

       def pre_listen(task_id, transport, attrs):
           # return list of (scope, name, value) tuples or None
       def post_listen(task_id, transport, local_contact, attrs):
           # return a tuple containing (local_contact_out, [(scope, name, value),...])
       def end_listen(task_id, transport, local_contact, attrs):
           # return a list of (scope, name, value) tuples or None
       def pre_accept(task_id, transport, local_contact, attrs):
           # return list of (scope, name, value) tuples or None
       def post_accept(task_id, transport, local_contact, remote_contact, attrs):
           # return list of (scope, name, value) tuples or None
       def pre_connect(task_id, transport, remote_contact, attrs):
           # return a tuple containing (remote_contact_out, [(scope, name, value),...])
       def post_connect(task_id, transport, local_contact, remote_contact, attrs):
           # return list of (scope, name, value) tuples or None
       def pre_close(task_id, transport, local_contact, remote_contact, attrs):
           # return None
       def post_close(task_id, transport, local_contact, remote_contact, attrs):
           # return None

        The task_id, transport, local_contact, and remote_contact parameters to these functions
       are all string objects. The attrs parameter to these functions are lists of 3-tuples
       (scope, name, value).

       To use this with the GridFTP server, add a file containing the following to the GridFTP
       configuration directory /etc/gridftp.d:

       $PYTHONPATH PATH
       xnetmgr "manager=python;pymod=MODULE_NAME;"

        Where 'PATH' is the directory containing your module and 'MODULE_NAME' is the name of the
       python module that you would use to import it (i.e. without the '.py' extension). So a
       module '/usr/local/globus/routeman.py' would require

       $PYTHONPATH /usr/local/globus
       xnetmgr "manager=python;pymod=routeman;"

       To use this with the XIO module directly, set the string options
       manager=python;pymod=routeman;. You'll need to set the PYTHONPATH environment variable
       elsewhere.

       To configure the network manager to use this module directly without XIO, set the 'pymod'
       attribute in the 'python' scope to the name of the python module to import and use. For
       example:

       globus_net_manager_attr_init(
           &attr,
           "python",
           "pymod",
           "routeman");

        and pass this to the context functions.
