voltctl - A command line tools to access VOLTHA

In today's VOLTHA implementation the operator interacts with VOLTHA via a CLI that is accessed by SSHing to the VOLTHA tool. While is can be convenent as it requires not external tool to be installed it is an abirtation in terms of industry trends for tools such as docker and kubernetes, which are both tools that VOLTHA leverages.

This repository contains a tool that attempts to provide a use model for VOLTHA that is similar to that of docker and kubernetes in that a simple control application is provided to invoke various funcs and the output can be displayed as a customized/filtered table or as JSON.

Build / Install

To install the voltctl command you can use the following:

mkdir myworkdir
cd myworkdir
export GOPATH=$(pwd)
git clone src/
cd src/
make build
cp ./voltctl <to any place you want in your path>

voltctl has only been tested with go version 1.12.x.

Shell Completion

voltctl supports shell completion for the bash shell. To enable shell Completion you can use the following command on most *nix based system.

source <(voltctl completion bash)

If this does not work on your system, as is the case with the standard bash shell on MacOS, then you can try the following command:

source /dev/stdin <<<"$(voltctl completion bash)"

If you which to make bash shell completion automatic when you login to your account you can append the output of voltctl completion bash to your $HOME/.bashrc:

voltctl completion base >> $HOME/.bashrc


Currently the configuration only supports the specification of the VOLTHA server. There is a sample configuration file name voltctl.config. You can copy this to ~/.volt/config and modify the server parameter to your environment. Alternatively you can specify the server on the command line as well, voltctl -server host:port ....


Currently only two commands are working

  • voltctl adapter list - displays the installed adapters
  • voltctl device list - displays the devices in the system
  • voltctl device create [-t type] [-i ipv4] [-m mac] [-H host_and_port] - create or pre-provision a device
  • voltctl delete DEVICE_ID [DEVICE_ID...] - delete one or more devices
  • voltctl enable DEVICE_ID [DEVICE_ID...] - enable one or more devices
  • voltctl disable DEVICE_ID [DEVICE_ID...] - disable one or more devices
  • voltctl version - display the client and server version

Output Format

Each command has a default output table format. This can be overriden from the command line using the voltctl --format=... option. The specification of the format is roughly equivalent to the docker or kubectl command. If the prefix table is specified a table with headers will be displayed, else each line will be output as specified.

The output of a command may also be written as JSON or YAML by using the --outputas or -o command line option. Valid values for this options are table, json, or yaml.

Overriding Default Command Format and Order

The default format and ordering of commands can be overriden (specified) by the command line options, but they can also be set via a configuration file so that the overrides don't have to be specified on each invocation. By default the file ~/.volt/command_options is loaded, but the file used can also be specified by the environment variable VOLTCTL_COMMAND_OPTIONS or via the command line arguments. A samle of this file is include in the repository as voltctl_command_options.config.
