'show indexes' equivalent of python client?



in aql, I can type show indexes to get all secondary indexes. is there a way for python client as well?


Alright, let’s assume a new numeric index is created over the namespace test, set demo and bin age:

aql> CREATE INDEX demo_age_idx ON test.demo(age) NUMERIC
OK, 1 index added.

aql> show indexes
| ns     | bin   | indextype | set    | state | indexname      | path  | sync_state | type      |
| "test" | "age" | "NONE"    | "demo" | "RW"  | "demo_age_idx" | "age" | "synced"   | "NUMERIC" |
1 row in set (0.001 secs)

The Python client’s Client.info method can be used to issue the info command sindex:

from __future__ import print_function
import aerospike

config = {'hosts': [('', 3000)] }
client = aerospike.client(config).connect()

response = client.info('sindex/test')

Which returns a dict containing a string that you’ll need to parse:

{'BB977293B290C00': (None, 'ns=test:set=demo:indexname=demo_age_idx:bin=age:type=NUMERIC:indextype=NONE:path=age:sync_state=synced:state=RW;\n')}


Thank you @rbotzer for a detailed answer. That surely worked. Can we expect parsed data in future releases?
