Retrieve node status via API

Last week I had an interesting query from a customer. He asked if there was a way if we could quickly show online/offline status quickly for all appliances instead of having to login to SteelConnect Manager.

The answer is a resounding “yes, we can!”, it would’ve been a short blog post otherwise… Anyways the REST API is your friend here and it was a challenge I couldn’t resist. A few hours later I came up with a Python 3 script that shows the online/offline status of an appliance.

You can use it for just one realm, as is often the case for a customer. You can also use it with a CSV file to show the status for all devices across multiple realms which comes in handy if you support multiple realms (service provider, or for those assisting with PoC/PoVs).

SteelConnect Node Status

Green means the SteelConnect appliance is online, red means it’s offline.

Head to Github for more details or clone it directly from https://github.com/Bakermat/steelconnect_node_status.git. Feel free to use it as you like or contribute to the project!
