Pull Endpoints through API
03-27-2018 01:31 AM
I need to pull a list of all end-points (including details like device type, hostname, ip, etc.) from ClearPass through its API. The process that works is:
First, pull a high-level list of all available MAC addresses: /api/endpoint
Then iterate that list and run two API calls per MAC:
I need to run the call to async_netd in order to get the hostname per device as the /insight/endpoint/mac API wouldn't return that info.
My question is: is there a more efficient way to pull all those end-point details?
The reason this is not very efficient: let's assume you have an environment with 10.000 end-points. I will need to run 1 + 10.000 + 10.000 API calls to get all details from all end-points. That takes more than 20 minutes to process and puts the ClearPass server under quite some load for quite a long time.
Any ideas on improving this?
