Overview #This script will scrape eDirectory 8.7.x Imonitor Continuity statistics.
Tool written by John Johnson when we worked together.
This is OLD code that has not been tested or used in several years.
Typically, you would use the Sadmin user.
This script will scrape eDirectory 8.7.x Imonitor Continuity statistics, such as:
- Partition Root
- Last Successful Sync.
- Maximum Ring Delta
- Replica's Perishable Data Delta
It will read an input file that specifies the servers and partition roots to collect data from, and print comma-delimited results to standard output.
This script should be portable to any platform that implements Perl 5.x. It has been tested on Windows and Linux. There are several modules that may need to be installed prior to use:
These modules may be installed with PPM (Windows) or CPAN:
perl -MCPAN -e shell
Open a command line in the directory that you placed the attached files.
Usage: getimon.pl [-f inputfile]
If the -f option is not specified, the script will look for a file in the default directory named:
Input file format#
host:domain:iMonitor port:iMonitor user:iMonitor password:T=treename
Output file format#The field headings are as follows. Comma delimited:
yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm,Partition Root,Partition or Host,Query Status,Errors,Last Successful Sync.,Maximum Ring Delta,Replica's Perishable Data DeltaTab delimited:
yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm Partition Root Partition or Host Query Status Errors Last Successful Sync. Maximum Ring Delta Replica's Perishable Data Delta
Example execution#This example uses an input file in a subdirectory under the ndsuser home directory:
[ndsuser@host] $ $HOME/bin/getimon.pl -f bin/imonLst.txt 2005-09-06 13:20,"T=TREE1",.TREE1.,OK,0,0:00:20,0:00:30,0:00:00 2005-09-06 13:20,"T=TREE2",.TREE2.,OK,0,0:00:51,0:00:41,0:00:41 2005-09-06 13:20,"T=TREE3",.TREE3.,OK,0,0:00:09,0:00:27,0:00:09 2005-09-06 13:20,"T=TREE4",.TREE4.,OK,0,0:54:05,0:00:00,312784:25:57
Scheduling with CRON#This will run the script to collect data every 5 minutes:
# # Gather iMonitor Continuity stats # 00,05,10,15,20,25,30,35,40,45,50,55 * * * * $HOME/bin/getimon.pl -f bin/imonLst.txt >> $HOME/imon.log 2>&1
