I had earlier written scripts in Perl that did the following:
Log in to Storage arrays, run monitoring commands, gather the outputs in a text file, then using regular expressions, take out only the required sections from the output and email the outputs to a group.
The username and passwords of the storage arrays were saved in a separate file. The IP Addresses of the storage arrays were saved in another file. All these were text files which were fed to the Perl script.
I am wondering if the same can be done in Golang? Because it treats files also as a sort of “stream of bytes”. Also, Perl / Python has readymade SSH modules which can be used. Is there something similar for Golang?
Or may be the above approach works best for Perl or Python, but for Golang, I need to approach the task in a different way?
Please note - I am not looking for a readymade script/program, I just want some high level information if this is possible in Golang and I can use the same approach.
Due to my work commitments, I cannot allocate time everyday to learn, hence the question.
