Extras - The XML-RPC API

SURFsara logo

This is an exercise from the Extras part of the HPC Cloud tutorials.

In this advanced part of our HPC Cloud tutorial we ask you to play around with the XML RPC API.

a) Setting up a VM for the exercise

Exercise: start a new VM (you are now in the advanced part; you should be able to do this on your own)

b) Run a first example

This exercise should make you familiar with our general documentation pages.

Food for brain:

  • What version does the API reply with?

c) Run a second example

Food for brain:

  • Can you now modify the VM list to show only the running VMs?
  • Can you make a program that will shutdown all your VMs but leaving intact the one you are running the program from?
