Python Script to show interface name and input status never

Hi All

 

Im trying to write a script which SSH to a switch runs the show interface name and the using regex pulls back interface name and Last input never

 

unfortunately i'm struggling with re module and my regex.  I have included an example regex and interface output.

 

Any assistance would be appreciated

 

Regex = (^GigabitEthernet\d.\d.\d+)*(Last input never)

Re: Python Script to show interface name and input status never

Hold on, not so fast! we can do that with a little tweak... :

targets = []
for m1 in re.finditer("(GigabitEthernet\d.\d.\d+).*?buffers swapped out", cli_input, re.DOTALL):
        m2 = re.search("(?P<interface>GigabitEthernet\d.\d.\d+).*Last input never", m1.group(0), re.DOTALL)
        if m2:
            targets.append(m2.group("interface"))

print(targets)

At the end of the run the list 'targets' will contain the interface names of all those with state 'Last input never'. You can then pass that list to another part of your script, iterate through it and run actions on each element.

 

cheers,

Seb.

Re: Python Script to show interface name and input status never

Hi there,

Try the following.It uses a named capture group so you can retrieve the interface name when you have a match:

import re

m = re.search("(?P<interface>GigabitEthernet\d.\d.\d+).*Last input never", cli_input, re.DOTALL)
if m:
    print(m.group("interface"))

'cli_input' is the string output of sh int gi1/1/1

 

 

cheers,

Seb.

Re: Python Script to show interface name and input status never

Hi Thanks for the response but I was running the sh interface command and then wanting to return the interfaces and the Last Input status never for all interfaces that matched.

 

I ran the regex you provided and it returned only the first interface but that actually had traffic showing on the last input.

 

Can you provide any other advise?

 

Thanks

Re: Python Script to show interface name and input status never

Ah my mistake, I didn't notice the string contained multiple interfaces... Ok so we need to break it up per-interface then run a the final regex check:

 

import re

for m1 in re.finditer("(GigabitEthernet\d.\d.\d+).*?buffers swapped out", cli_input, re.DOTALL):
        m2 = re.search("(GigabitEthernet\d.\d.\d+).*Last input never", m1.group(0), re.DOTALL)
        if m2:
            print(m2.group(0))

 

 

...better?

 

cheers,

Seb.

Re: Python Script to show interface name and input status never

Hi Thanks for your response its better but not quite what i was after i was really looking for the output of:  GigabitEthernet1/0/X   Last Input Never in to group so i could call just the interface names and then i can run configurations against the interfaces that dont have any input.

 

Thanks
