Example of interacting with Cisco IOS devices:

.. code-block:: python

import asyncio
import netdev

async def task(param): async with netdev.create(**param) as ios: # Testing sending simple command out = await ios.send_command("show ver") print(out) # Testing sending configuration set commands = ["line console 0", "exit"] out = await ios.send_config_set(commands) print(out) # Testing sending simple command with long output out = await ios.send_command("show run") print(out) # Testing interactive dialog out = await ios.send_command("conf", pattern=r'[terminal]?', strip_command=False) out += await ios.send_command("term", strip_command=False) out += await ios.send_command("exit", strip_command=False, strip_prompt=False) print(out)

async def run(): dev1 = { 'username' : 'user', 'password' : 'pass', 'device_type': 'cisco_ios', 'host': 'ip address', } dev2 = { 'username' : 'user', 'password' : 'pass', 'device_type': 'cisco_ios', 'host': 'ip address', } devices = [dev1, dev2] tasks = [task(dev) for dev in devices] await asyncio.wait(tasks)

loop = asyncio.get_event_loop() loop.run_until_complete(run())
