This Week: Applying Junos Automation As you work with the Junos® operating system, you will build a knowledge reservoir of best practices and lessons learned, a body of intelligence that can be available 24x7 to help your network run optimally. Junos automation allows you to automate your accumulated intelligence through scripts which automatically control Junos devices according to your desired best practices. This book demonstrates how to implement this inherent potential in the Junos operating system.

Previously published as three separate Day One guides, This Week: Applying Junos Automation now combines Junos operation, event, and configuration automation techniques into a single, comprehensive volume.

“Junos automation technology provides a rich portfolio of toolsets that are extremely powerful yet simple to adopt. This book demonstrates that in very little time you too can create solutions for many challenging network management tasks.”
Lixun Qi, Lead IP Engineer, T-Systems North America Inc.

“The flexibility and power of Junos configuration is increased with the introduction of commit scripts. This book provides a clear overview and the detailed information required to take full advantage of these scripts.”
Mike Benjamin, Distinguished Engineer, Global Crossing

• Learn to use reference scripts from this book and Juniper’s script library; Interpret the XML data structures used by Junos devices; communicate with Junos through the Junos XML API; ease how you write XML data structures using the SLAX XML abbreviated format; and, create your own customized operation scripts.
• Understand the difference between an op script and an event script; identify potential events that could be automated; build the needed event policy to match desired events and conditions; and, create your own customized event scripts.
