x2go.cache module

X2GoListSessionCache class - caching X2Go session information.

class x2go.cache.X2GoListSessionsCache(client_instance, logger=None, loglevel=56)[source]

Bases: object

For non-blocking operations in client applications using Python X2Go, it is recommended to enable the x2go.cache.X2GoListSessionsCache. This can be done by calling the constructor of the x2go.client.X2GoClient class.

The session list and desktop cache gets updated in regular intervals by a threaded x2go.guardian.X2GoSessionGuardian instance. For the session list and desktop list update, the X2Go server commands x2golistsessions and x2godesktopsessions are called and the command’s stdout is cached in the session list cache.

Whenever your client application needs access to either the server’s session list or the server’s desktop list the session cache is queried instead. This assures that the server’s session/desktop list is available without delay, even on slow internet connections.

check_cache()[source]

Check if session list cache elements are still valid (i.e. if all corresponding session profiles are still connected). If not so, remove invalid cache entries from the session list cache.

delete(profile_name)[source]

Remove session list from cache for a given profile.

Parameters:profile_name (str) – name of profile to operate on
is_cached(profile_name=None, session_uuid=None, cache_type=None)[source]

Check if session information is cached.

Parameters:
  • profile_name (str) – name of profile to update (Default value = None)
  • session_uuid (str) – unique identifier of session to query cache for (Default value = None)
  • cache_type (str) – cache type (e.g. ‘mounts’, ‘desktops’, ‘sessions’) (Default value = None)
Returns:

True if session information is cached

Return type:

bool

list_desktops(session_uuid)[source]

Retrieve a list of available desktop sessions from the current cache content of x2go.cache.X2GoListSessionsCache for a given x2go.session.X2GoSession instance (specified by its unique session UUID).

Parameters:session_uuid (str) – unique identifier of session to query cache for
Returns:a list of strings representing X2Go desktop sessions available for sharing
Return type:list (or None)
list_mounts(session_uuid)[source]

Retrieve a list of mounted client shares from the current cache content of x2go.cache.X2GoListSessionsCache for a given x2go.session.X2GoSession instance (specified by its unique session UUID).

Parameters:session_uuid (str) – unique identifier of session to query cache for
Returns:a list of strings representing mounted client shares
Return type:list (or None)
list_sessions(session_uuid)[source]

Retrieve a session list from the current cache content of x2go.cache.X2GoListSessionsCache for a given x2go.session.X2GoSession instance (specified by its unique session UUID).

Parameters:session_uuid (str) – unique identifier of session to query cache for
Returns:a data object containing available session information
Return type:X2GoServerSessionList* instance (or None)
update(profile_name, update_sessions=True, update_desktops=False, update_mounts=False)[source]

Update x2go.cache.X2GoListSessionsCache (i.e. session/desktops) for session profile profile_name.

Parameters:
  • profile_name (str) – name of profile to update
  • update_sessions (bool) – cache recent session list from server (Default value = True)
  • update_desktops (bool) – cache recent desktop list from server (Default value = False)
  • update_mounts (bool) – cache list of client-side mounts on server (Default value = False)
update_all(update_sessions=True, update_desktops=False)[source]

Update x2go.cache.X2GoListSessionsCache for all connected session profiles.

Parameters:
  • update_sessions (bool) – cache recent session lists from all connected servers (Default value = True)
  • update_desktops (bool) – cache recent desktop lists from all connected servers (Default value = False)
