/tool romon> ssh ((( using --> output-to-file ))) for a remote site-survey

Fri Aug 28, 2015 12:19 am

I hope somebody has something.

I am looking for a way to perform a site-survey on a remote client Mikrotik and be able to somehow capture the output of a wireless scan into a log or a file.

((( FYI - I know about the telnet method - but this often does not work if you are disconnected beyond 10 seconds )))

I am looking for a method (script or command line) which can perform the following:
/interface wireless scan wlan1 duration=120
-and-also-
/interface wireless frequency-monitor wlan1 duration=120

where the duration is the time in seconds to perform the test (and hopefully save the results to be looked at later.

Is there something like this command:
[admin@mikrotik] /tool romon> ssh output-to-file=foo.txt [/interface wireless scan wlan1 duration=120]

Any advice would be great.

edit-update: This almost works - almost:
ssh output-to-file=survey-temp [/interface wireless scan wlan1 duration=12]
I suspect I am doing something wrong because the output is not going to the file "survey-temp"
Is there any way for a script to run a site-survey and save the results in the log or in a file ????

It would sure be nice if Mikrotik supported the "file" option in the site-survey and scan when used with the "duration" option.

O come on now ...

Is there absolutely no way to perform a through scan/frequency usage on a remote-located mikrotik ???

I thought I was close to solving the problem.

It would sure be nice if Mikrotik supported the "file" option in the site-survey and scan when used with the "duration" option


and/or support the Linux redirect ">"

How hard can this be for something seriously needed and lacking :?
