I need the status values of databases of a 2017.1.xx cache instance

I am using the 

import intersys.pythonbind3 as pyb

conn     = pyb.connection()
db      = pyb.database(conn)
qry        = pyb.query(db)
obj        = pyb.object(db)

for connection to the cache instance

However when I run this class method, The error message  indicates the method does not exist:


intersys.pythonbind3.cache_exception: file=intersys/pythonbind3.c line=3034 err=-1000 message=<METHOD DOES NOT EXIST> 148 runMtdLow+22^%SYS.BINDSRV GetStatus,SYS.Database


I can not find the class reference docs for 2017. I am guessing the name has changed since that early version of cache.

I would like to know if someone has a link to the class reference doc for 2017 cache or does someone know of another method of getting database status values?

GetStatus is available in 2017.1 but it's an instance method, not a class method, so you can't call it this way.

You need to wrap it in a class method.

Thank-you for the response. I now have found the class reference for 2017 where it is specified as a method as opposed to a classmethod.

Would you mind elaborating a bit on your statement "...wrap it in a class method". I see that in object script there is the $METHOD() which appears to be what I need but I am not find finding an equivalent python method.

Write a classmethod:

ClassMethod GetStatus(dbFolder) As %String
   new $namespace
   set $namespace = "%SYS"
   set db = ##class(SYS.Database).%OpenId(dbFolder)
   quit db.GetStatus()

And call it from Python.
