New edition of the bestselling guide to mastering Python Networking, updated to Python 3 and including the latest on network data analysis, Cloud Networking, Ansible 2.8, and new libraries Key Features Explore the power of Python libraries to tackle difficult network problems efficiently and effectively, including pyATS, Nornir, and Ansible 2.8 Use Python and Ansible for DevOps, network device automation, DevOps, and software-defined networking Become an expert in implementing advanced network-related tasks with Python 3 Book Description Networks in your infrastructure set the foundation for how your application can be deployed, maintained, and serviced. Python is the ideal language for network engineers to explore tools that were previously available to systems engineers and application developers. In Mastering Python Networking, Third edition, you'll embark on a Python-based journey to transition from traditional network engineers to network developers ready for the next-generation of networks. This new edition is completely revised and updated to work with Python 3. In addition to new chapters on network data analysis with ELK stack (Elasticsearch, Logstash, Kibana, and Beats) and Azure Cloud Networking, it includes updates on using newer libraries such as pyATS and Nornir, as well as Ansible 2.8. Each chapter is updated with the latest libraries with working examples to ensure compatibility and understanding of the concepts. Starting with a basic overview of Python, the book teaches you how it can interact with both legacy and API-enabled network devices. You will learn to leverage high-level Python packages and frameworks to perform network automation tasks, monitoring, management, and enhanced network security followed by Azure and AWS Cloud networking. Finally, you will use Jenkins for continuous integration as well as testing tools to verify your network. What you will learn Use Python libraries to interact with your network Integrate Ansible 2.8 using Python to control Cisco, Juniper, and Arista network devices Leverage existing Flask web frameworks to construct high-level APIs Learn how to build virtual networks in the AWS & Azure Cloud Learn how to use Elastic Stack for network data analysis Understand how Jenkins can be used to automatically deploy changes in your network Use PyTest and Unittest for Test-Driven Network Development in networking engineering with Python Who this book is for Mastering Python Networking, Third edition is for network engineers, developers, and SREs who want to use Python for network automation, programmability, and data analysis. Basic familiarity with Python programming and networking-related concepts such as Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) will be useful.

Become an expert in implementing advanced, network-related tasks with Python. About This Book Build the skills to perform all networking tasks using Python with ease Use Python for network device automation, DevOps, and software-defined networking Get practical guidance to networking with Python Who This Book Is For If you are a network engineer or a programmer who wants to use Python for networking, then this book is for you. A basic familiarity with networking-related concepts such as TCP/IP and a familiarity with Python programming will be useful. What You Will Learn Review all the fundamentals of Python and the TCP/IP suite Use Python to execute commands when the device does not support the API or programmatic interaction with the device Implement automation techniques by integrating Python with Cisco, Juniper, and Arista eAPI Integrate Ansible using Python to control Cisco, Juniper, and Arista networks Achieve network security with Python Build Flask-based web-service APIs with Python Construct a Python-based migration plan from a legacy to scalable SDN-based network. In Detail This book begins with a review of the TCP/ IP protocol suite and a refresher of the core elements of the Python language. Next, you will start using Python and supported libraries to automate network tasks from the current major network vendors. We will look at automating traditional network devices based on the command-line interface, as well as newer devices with API support, with hands-on labs. We will then learn the concepts and practical use cases of the Ansible framework in order to achieve your network goals. We will then move on to using Python for DevOps, starting with using open source tools to test, secure, and analyze your network. Then, we will focus on network monitoring and visualization. We will learn how to retrieve network information using a polling mechanism, ?ow-based monitoring, and visualizing the data programmatically. Next, we will learn how to use the Python framework to build your own customized network web services. In the last module, you will use Python for SDN, where you will use a Python-based controller with OpenFlow in a hands-on lab to learn its concepts and applications. We will compare and contrast OpenFlow, OpenStack, OpenDaylight, and NFV. Finally, you will use everything you've learned in the book to construct a migration plan to go from a legacy to a scalable SDN-based network. Style and approach An easy-to-follow guide packed with hands-on examples of using Python for network device automation, DevOps, and SDN.
