Using scripts is common when doing repetitive management tasks and monitoring systems in the data center, but writing these scripts can be challenging when integrating with different storage system management interfaces. PyWBEM simplifies these tasks when dealing with storage systems managed by the Storage Management Initiative Specification (SMI-S) standard. PyWBEM is an open source Python library that simplifies dealing with storage system discovery, security, monitoring, performance, fault reporting, and active management.

This talk provides an overview of the PyWBEM library. It shows how this library and its command line tools can be used to easily access and configure storage systems that are managed via an SMI-S connection. Sample Python scripts will be presented that illustrate how to work with these storage systems. The talk will also cover future directions for the PyWBEM open source project and new components that might be added.
