Counters Version 1.05
Counters.pl collects the CLI counters from network devices and produces custom
reports. The reports can be viewed via a web site and/or sent via email.
There is a flexible configuration language in which reports can be specified.
The format and style of the html reports are controlled by Template Toolkit
templates and css.
Why would you want to collect CLI counters? The CLI counters can be reset
indepently of the SNMP counters and when collected weekly can highlight issues
such as connection errors that you will not see looking at graphs produced
from SNMP counters. I run counters.pl early every Friday morning and review
the results before lunch on that day.
