resqpy.olio.uuid.new_uuid

resqpy.olio.uuid.new_uuid()[source]

Returns a new uuid based on the time (to 100ns) & MAC address option of the iso standard.

Returns:

uuid.UUID object

Notes

at present, the multi-processor safe functionality is not deployed, so multiple processors sharing the same MAC address could generate the same uuid simultaneously; an integer sequence is generated when in test mode
