Arista EOS offers multiple programmable interfaces for applications. These interfaces can be leveraged by applications running on the switch, or external to EOS. Arista’s newest interface, EOS API (eAPI), allows applications and scripts to have complete programmatic control over EOS, with a stable and easy to use syntax. Once the API is enabled, the switch accepts commands using Arista’s CLI syntax, and responds with machine-readable output and errors serialized in JSON, served over HTTP. DevOps teams will be very impressed.
