NAME

ap-mrtg, ap-rrd - AP statistics translators

SYNOPSIS

ap-mrtg -i ip -c community -t type [-b bssid ] [-v] [-r] [-h] ap-rrd -i ip -c community -t type -ddb_file [-b bssid ] [-r] [-h]

DESCRIPTION

ap-mrtg get stats from AP and return it in MRTG parsable format. The Multi Router Traffic Grapher (MRTG) is a tool to monitor the traffic load on network- links. MRTG generates HTML pages containing graphical images which provide a LIVE visual representation of this traffic. You may get it from: http://peo‐ ple.ee.ethz.ch/~oetiker/webtools/mrtg/. ap-rrd gets stats from an AP and writes them to an RRDtool database. RRDtool is a data logging and graphing system for time series data.

Grabbing the signal strength resets the ethernet and wireless stats and AP. It's safe do not use this type of stat. Optionally you may set mac address (bssid) of the AP to which getting link quality stats, by default used first returned AP. Simple mrtg.cfg for get stats from Atmel based AP with Link Quality and reset stats: Target[ap_e]: `/usr/local/bin/ap-mrtg -i 192.168.0.1 -c "public" -t ethernet -v` Options[ap_e]: noinfo, growright, bits, gauge MaxBytes[ap_e]: 12500 Title[ap_e]: Traffic Analysis for AP Ethernet port PageTop[ap_e]: <H1>Traffic Analysis for AP Ethernet port</H1> Target[ap_w]: `/usr/local/bin//ap-mrtg -i 192.168.0.1 -c "public" -t wireless -v` Options[ap_w]: noinfo, growright, perminute, gauge ShortLegend[ap_w]: pkt/min MaxBytes[ap_w]: 100000000 Legend1[ap_w]: Packets In Legend2[ap_w]: Packets Out YLegend[ap_w]: packets/min Title[ap_w]: Traffic Analysis for AP Wireless port PageTop[ap_w]: <H1>Traffic Analysis for AP Wireless port</H1> Target[EdAP_s]: `/usr/local/bin/ap-mrtg -i 192.168.0.1 -c "public" -t link -b FFFFFFFF -v -r` MaxBytes[EdAP_s]: 100 Options[EdAP_s]: noinfo,growright,integer,unknaszero,nopercent,gauge Title[EdAP_s]: Signal Analysis for EdAP Wireless port YLegend[EdAP_s]: Signal Strength dBm/Quality ShortLegend[EdAP_s]: dBm PageTop[EdAP_s]: <H1>Signal/Quality Strength for EdAP</H1> LegendI[EdAP_s]: Signal Quality LegendO[EdAP_s]: Signal Strength in dBm
