salt.runners.cache

Return cached data from minions

salt.runners.cache.clear_all(tgt=None, tgt_type=u'glob')

Changed in version 2017.7.0: The expr_form argument has been renamed to tgt_type, earlier releases must use expr_form.

Clear the cached pillar, grains, and mine data of the targeted minions

CLI Example:

salt-run cache.clear_all
salt.runners.cache.clear_git_lock(role, remote=None, **kwargs)

New in version 2015.8.2.

Remove the update locks for Salt components (gitfs, git_pillar, winrepo) which use gitfs backend code from salt.utils.gitfs.

Note

Running cache.clear_all will not include this function as it does for pillar, grains, and mine.

Additionally, executing this function with a role of gitfs is equivalent to running salt-run fileserver.clear_lock backend=git.

role
Which type of lock to remove (gitfs, git_pillar, or winrepo)
remote
If specified, then any remotes which contain the passed string will have their lock cleared. For example, a remote value of github will remove the lock from all github.com remotes.
type
: update,checkout,mountpoint

The types of lock to clear. Can be one or more of update, checkout, and mountpoint, and can be passed either as a comma-separated or Python list.

New in version 2015.8.8.

Changed in version 2018.3.0: mountpoint lock type added

CLI Examples:

salt-run cache.clear_git_lock gitfs
salt-run cache.clear_git_lock git_pillar
salt-run cache.clear_git_lock git_pillar type=update
salt-run cache.clear_git_lock git_pillar type=update,checkout
salt-run cache.clear_git_lock git_pillar type='["update", "mountpoint"]'
salt.runners.cache.clear_grains(tgt=None, tgt_type=u'glob')

Changed in version 2017.7.0: The expr_form argument has been renamed to tgt_type, earlier releases must use expr_form.

CLI Example:

salt-run cache.clear_grains
salt.runners.cache.clear_mine(tgt=None, tgt_type=u'glob')

Changed in version 2017.7.0: The expr_form argument has been renamed to tgt_type, earlier releases must use expr_form.

Clear the cached mine data of the targeted minions

CLI Example:

salt-run cache.clear_mine
salt.runners.cache.clear_mine_func(tgt=None, tgt_type=u'glob', clear_mine_func_flag=None)

Changed in version 2017.7.0: The expr_form argument has been renamed to tgt_type, earlier releases must use expr_form.

Clear the cached pillar data of the targeted minions

CLI Example:

salt-run cache.clear_pillar
salt.runners.cache.cloud(tgt, provider=None)

Return cloud cache data for target.

Note

Only works with glob matching

tgt
Glob Target to match minion ids
provider
Cloud Provider

CLI Example:

salt-run cache.cloud 'salt*'
salt-run cache.cloud glance.example.org provider=openstack
salt.runners.cache.fetch(bank, key, cachedir=None)

Fetch data from a salt.cache bank.

CLI Example:

salt-run cache.fetch cloud/active/ec2/myec2 myminion cachedir=/var/cache/salt/
salt.runners.cache.flush(bank, key=None, cachedir=None)

Remove the key from the cache bank with all the key content. If no key is specified remove the entire bank with all keys and sub-banks inside.

CLI Examples:

salt-run cache.flush cloud/active/ec2/myec2 cachedir=/var/cache/salt/
salt-run cache.flush cloud/active/ec2/myec2 myminion cachedir=/var/cache/salt/
salt.runners.cache.grains(tgt=None, tgt_type=u'glob', **kwargs)

Changed in version 2017.7.0: The expr_form argument has been renamed to tgt_type, earlier releases must use expr_form.

Return cached grains of the targeted minions.

tgt

Target to match minion ids.

Changed in version 2017.7.5,2018.3.0: The tgt argument is now required to display cached grains. If not used, the function will not return grains. This optional argument will become mandatory in the Salt Sodium release.

tgt_type
The type of targeting to use for matching, such as glob, list, etc.

CLI Example:

salt-run cache.grains '*'
salt.runners.cache.list(bank, cachedir=None)

Lists entries stored in the specified bank.

CLI Example:

salt-run cache.list cloud/active/ec2/myec2 cachedir=/var/cache/salt/
salt.runners.cache.mine(tgt=None, tgt_type=u'glob', **kwargs)

Changed in version 2017.7.0: The expr_form argument has been renamed to tgt_type, earlier releases must use expr_form.

Return cached mine data of the targeted minions

CLI Example:

salt-run cache.mine
salt.runners.cache.pillar(tgt=None, tgt_type=u'glob', **kwargs)

Changed in version 2017.7.0: The expr_form argument has been renamed to tgt_type, earlier releases must use expr_form.

Return cached pillars of the targeted minions

CLI Example:

salt-run cache.pillar
salt.runners.cache.store(bank, key, data, cachedir=None)

Lists entries stored in the specified bank.

CLI Example:

salt-run cache.store mycache mykey 'The time has come the walrus said'
