Example of how to pull a pool list from pycontrol v.2. This example passes in
the  'fromurl' keyword as True (default is False), which tells pycontrol
to fetch the WSDL from the remote BigIP.
if len(sys.argv) < 4:
    print "Usage %s ip_address username password" % sys.argv[0]

a = sys.argv[1:]

if pc.__version__ >= 2.0:
    print "Requires pycontrol version 2.x!"

# The constructor is similar to the original pyControl.
# Note the change from wsdl_files to wsdls, which makes more sense.
b = pc.BIGIP(
        hostname = a[0],
        username = a[1],
        password = a[2],
        fromurl = True,
        wsdls = ['LocalLB.Pool'])

pools = b.LocalLB.Pool.get_list()
version = b.LocalLB.Pool.get_version()

print "Version is: %s\n" % version
print "Pools:"

# Note that pools.item represents the pool list. Return
# Structures from pycontrol2 are VERY different from the original.
for x in pools:
    print "\t%s" % x
