OnePK Lab Notes
« on: August 19, 2013, 10:07:12 AM »
OnePK is Cisco's answer to Software Define Networking. It's still in limited release on a request basis. It's essentially a Software Development Kit (SDK) the facilitates automation, programability, and monitoring to network resources.

In the past, engineers had to write Perl or Expect style scripts to add custom intelligence to networks. Those scripts would use SSL or Telnet style libraries to simulate a user accessing into a device. The scripts would run commands and read/parse the responses.

SDN is the next level of this type of control, with a Spin. The main marketing pitch is that the Application will control the network.

I'm in the early stages of looking at OnePK. I have it installed on a CentOS box. I wanted to start a thread, where myself and hopefully other engineers can share their experiences with this new toolset. I'll start:

OnePK comes in at least two languages (Java,C). I focused on the Java SDK.

Here are my notes on installing the OnePK Java SDK:

# Installing Base Dev Tools
yum groupinstall "Development Tools"
yum install java-1.7.0-openjdk

# Maven is a Java Compiler
yum install wget
wget You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

# Oracle Java - We need the traditional Sun SDK
rpm -i jdk-7u25-linux-x64.rpm

cd /usr/local
mkdir apache-maven
-copy in file and tar xvfz

export M2_HOME=/usr/local/apache-maven/apache-maven-3.1.0
export M2=$M2_HOME/bin
export PATH=$M2:$PATH

export JAVA_HOME=/usr/java/default/
export PATH=$JAVA_HOME/bin:$PATH

From onePK folder
chmod u+x

mvn -version

mvn install:install-file -Dfile=libonep-core-rel.jar -DartifactId=libonep-core-rel -Dversion=0.8-Dpackaging=jar

The next step is to find a network device to control. There is a small list. This is what I dug up.

The platform roadmap for FCS releases of onePK is:
   Available Q2 CY13: ISRG2, Nexus 3K (Limited)
   Q3 CY2013: ASR1K, Nexus 3k/3500.
   Q4 CY2013: ISR 8xx, ISR 19xx, ISR 4400, N5K, N6K, N7K.
   Q1 CY2014: Cat2K/3K/4K, CSR1000V, ASR9K.
   2014: Cat 6K, ME36/3800, CRS, Nexus 1KV.
