Grid'5000 is a scientific instrument for the study of large scale parallel and distributed systems. The suite of APIs was designed to ease scripting and provide better access to the grid functionalities. A description of the APIs follows:
Metrology API: Provides the key metrics of the Grid'5000 nodes: memory, cpu usage, bytes in, bytes out.
Jobs API: Allows users to submit jobs on a Grid'5000 site.
Monitoring API: Provides the status of the Grid'5000 nodes.
Reference API: Provides the reference data of Grid'5000 such as the list of sites, clusters, nodes, environment.
Deployments API: Allows users to deploy a specific environment on Grid'5000 nodes.
Users API: Offers functionalities to manage Grid'5000 user accounts.
The API uses RESTful calls and responses are formatted in XML, JSON, PDF and HTML. Full documentation requires registration.
The following is a list of historical changes that were made to this asset. Typically, once an API is published on ProgrammableWeb.com, the data we keep about that asset gets updated over the course of its life. For example, the endpoint or home page of the documentation might change. As a means of enforcing the integrity of our data, every time a non-trivial change is made to the data we keep about an asset, we require the entry of some changelog text before that change can be saved. This way, we have a great audit trail of all activity surrounding the asset. For each asset, the changelogs begins with the moment an asset is approved for publication on ProgrammableWeb. If you spot an error in our data and believe that a record needs to be updated in some way, the ProgrammableWeb team would very much like to hear from you at email@example.com
So far, we don't have a record of any changes to this API
