a little help?
Posted: Mon Apr 09, 2007 9:24 pm
I would like to monitor the number of users an each rtrbd. Each of our boards run backhaul and hotspot and it would be nice to monitor/graph the number of associations throughout the day for each.
Any help is appreciated.

Nobody is monitoring the number of associations? There must be a way to count the number of active wireless associations. Is there a counting function in the probe utility?
Anyone? Even just a hint?

Do an snmpwalk on the device and look for an OID in TREE view that tells you how many associations there currently are. If one exits, make a data source and graph it,

Sorry, I was not clear. I am familiar with creating a data source from an existing OID, but I have not been able to find one that counts the number of associations, hence the request for help with what I assume is going to require some function and/or calculation.

In order to create a function, you need to find an OID(s) that you can use in the calculation. Maybe someone is already doing this and will chime in as you are desiring
Other way is to find out what message is logged in the router log when a client connects and assuming you are using a syslog server, you could have a script filter for that message and count them. I'm not sure how you would get the syslog info back into Dude. The syslog viewer would have to write it to a file and you would need to have Dude read the file...not sure if that is possible.
