Yay for NASA! Coolest thing I've seen in years! I watched the NEAR mission in one window all day, and the work on the space station in another. I just alternated between the two. And yes, I was actually working in a set of ssh terms in between :-)
God forbid, but I MAY have gotten my scripts reading the SNMP MIB's from a test Cisco router working. Now I should be able to monitor any interface I want and send an email page on CRC errors. Handy thing. I'm wondering if I can't tie some kind of web snatch-and-grab interface into this, to grab and mirror any stats off the interface. I couldn't find anything to do it as a simple module; it's all "Write it yourself". Seems there's a need for a plugin to let you just say "community@router", click a link for an interface, and see EVERYTHING it knows about :-) We use cricket and friends here, but it's a buttload of config work for the simple stuff I'm trying to do. Might be the start of a new toy. Not sure if I should start w/ PHP for this, as a way to get into it.
