xrootdlib - Tools for working with the XRootD middleware

The xrootdlib offers building blocks and basic tools to work with the XRootD data access middleware. It is meant to facilitate auxiliary work, such as monitoring, accounting and orchestration.

Package Overview

xrootdlib.streams
Stream-like converter, reader and representations for various XRootD information sources. Each stream produces a pre-processed representation of information, which directly exposes all relevant information.
xrootdlib.structs

Representations of various struct used by XRootD to provide or digest data. Each data structure exposes both a flat, high-performance Python interface as well as views replicating the struct interface. Data structures support the conversion to and from raw bytes.

xrootdlib.structs.XrdXrootdMon
Structs used for the Detailed Monitoring Data Format streams sent by servers. See the all.monitor directive and XRootD Monitoring for details.

Compatibility

This package requires Python 3.4 or newer. It is tested with CPython (aka python3) and PyPy (aka pypy3).
