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.
