What is the Ironic Python Agent?

  • The agent is a small python application that is embedded in a ramdisk.
  • During deployment or cleaning, a node boots the ramdisk.
  • The agent inside then exposes a REST API that Ironic uses to interact with the agent.
  • The API calls pluggable HardwareManagers to interact with the machine.

Current Status

The ironic-python-agent is the only supported deploy mechanism for Ironic, as the old bash ramdisk was deprecated during Mitaka cycle.
