BrandPost: How to Use On-Box Python Scripts for Cisco Devices

As a junior network engineer at a university I wrote a lot of management scripts in Perl.  I had scripts to do things such as check switchport configurations and upgrade switch code.

Times have changed a lot since then.

The universityrsquo;s web server now runs in the cloud, rather than on my personal workstation, and Python hasnbsp;surpassednbsp;Perl  as the scripting language du jour. Network automation now has a major focus with Python as an extremely important tool.Today Irsquo;m going to show you how to use Python scripts hosted on the box and integrated into IOS.

This is far more powerful than my earlier-career scripts, and I have some simple examples for PCI compliance, Dynamic DNS ACL updates, and configuration validation.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

The plan calls for fixing all P1 (Priority 1) bugs critical to the success of Java Development Kit (JDK) 9.

Also, builders would decommit from fixing any bugs not new in JDK 9 and not critical to the release, even if they had been targeted for fixing.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

JVM may get upgrade to support today’s multicore processors

Oracle is proposing an update to the Java Virtual Machine to allow for direct-value class types, a modernization required by the advent of multicore processors. There is no schedule for when the changes might appear in the JVM.The changes to the JVM specification would support a prototype of value classes—classes for which primitive-like non-reference value instances can be created and acted upon. “The proposals for value types in Java are about giving developers the alternative to give up identity and polymorphism so that the runtime can represent the underlying data in a way which is both far more compact and much better suited for processing in bulk operations,” said Georges Saab, Oracle’s vice president of software development in the Java platform group.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
