Pool API Sample
One of the most anticipated features in Digipede Network 2.1 is the opening of the Pool / Agent API.
For the first time, you can programmatically manipulate your pools and agents: you can create pools, delete pools, move agents on and off of pools. You can also modify the agents themselves: enable or disable them, enable or disable the licenses, and change any of their settings: processing schedule, bandwidth restrictions, even their Agent Base Priority.
When you add in the ability to access our API through PowerShell, you're starting to see some incredible ability to administer your grid automatically.
I've created a very simple sample to demonstrate a little bit of the pool API -- it lists pools and agents, lets you create pools, delete pools, add agents to or remove them from pools, or rename pools (double click on the pool name).
It's not production code, nor is it the tool you want to be using to administer your Digipede Network. But it does show a bunch of the new classes and methods, and it should give you a good idea of what's possible with this extension to our API.
