Transport factory class.
The transport layer is the one used to convey the commands to be executed into the selected hosts. The transport abstraction allow to specify a mode to choose the execution plan, an event handler class and a success threshold. Those can be used by the chosen transport to customize the behavior of the execution plan.
All the transports share a common interface that is defined in the
cumin.transports.BaseWorkerclass and they are instantiated through the
cumin.transport.Transportfactory class. Each transport module need to define a
worker_classmodule variable that is a pointer to the transport class for dynamic instantiation.
Create a transport worker class based on the configuration (factory).
the created worker instance for the configured transport.
- Return type
cumin.CuminError -- if the configuration is missing the required
exceptions.ImportError -- if unable to import the transport module.
exceptions.AttributeError -- if the transport module is missing the required
