Published by RightScale, Inc. under the MIT License. For information about RightScale, see www.rightscale.com

DESCRIPTION:

The RightScale Slicehost gem has been designed to provide a robust interface to Slicehost‘s existing API.

FEATURES/PROBLEMS:

  • Full programmatic access to the Slicehost API.
  • Complete error handling: all operations check for errors and report complete error information by raising a SlicehostError.
  • Persistent HTTP connections with robust network-level retry layer using Rightscale::HttpConnection. This includes socket timeouts and retries.
  • Robust HTTP-level retry layer. Certain (user-adjustable) HTTP errors returned by Slicehost are classified as temporary errors. These errors are automaticallly retried using exponentially increasing intervals. The number of retries is user-configurable.

INSTALL:

 sudo gem install right_slicehost
