Pondering Automation: Multiple Hours of Process Authoring Goodness

Shaun Roberts
Cisco Employee

Hello all in Automation Land! Well we have been busy and the amount of TEO/CPO work continues to grow. I hope the day finds you and yours well and that you are enjoying your time with CPO. On some requests I have done a couple of webex recording VODs that I think you will find very useful. (at least I hope so).


The first one is a 23 minute segment showing creation and configuration of almost every target type in the book. There are not too many "gotchas" on them but a few here and there.



Secondly, I have had multiple requests to show more process authoring and developing processes from scratch, etc. While this takes time I have had a chance to "throw" something together that, while a demo, still seems real world useful.


The scenario is you have a master TEO server to monitor other TEO Servers and monitor their SQL DBs and alert you if there are issues. And then if there are issues, perform automated recovery upon approval.


This recording is a bit long but it takes you from having nothing at all to having multiple processes in a complete monitoring set. Now understand that is NOT PRODUCTION LEVEL by any means and is semi-build in a vaccuum of support boxes. But this is more about understanding concepts and seeing something go from nothing to something. Lots of stuff around Extended Target Properties, target properties, conditionals, and plenty other goodies.

The recording is 1 hour, 43 minutes. So all in all, if you watch both you get to enjoy me for 2 whole hours!


Like mentioned in the recording, the TAP from the recording is attached to this blog. Again, not production level, not supported, not anything. Just some fun stuff I put together, that you are more than welcome to take and go through at your own pace.




As always..... Enjoy!!!


Shaun's Weekly Q/A



No questions this week! Hopefully we'll get some in to answer for next week!




Ever week I will pick a handful of questions from you, the reading CPO public, to answer in this part of the blog. Please post comments/questions below. I will no longer be using the external e-mail from previous blogs.



Please also let me know if you like the format of this blog and what else you would like to see/know about. Feel free to give any ideas as to future blog posts, etc and I will be happy to post them. I hope to do more how-tos, best practices, tips, tricks, and hopefully some interviews of the important people behind the scenes of CPO. My hope is to have a once/week blog entry here on CPO!
