MRTG::Parse(3) User Contributed Perl Documentation MRTG::Parse(3)
 

MRTG::Parse - Perl extension for parsing and utilizing the logfiles generated by the famous MRTG Tool.

  use strict;
  use MRTG::Parse;
  
  my $mrtg_logfile = "/var/www/htdocs/mrtg/eth0.log";
  my $period       = "day";
  my $desired_unit = "GB"; 
  my ($traffic_incoming, $traffic_outgoing, $traffic_sum) = mrtg_parse($mrtg_logfile, $period, $desired_unit);
  print "Incoming Traffic:   $traffic_incoming\n";
  print "Outgoing Traffic:   $traffic_outgoing\n";
  print "= Sum               $traffic_sum\n";

This perl extension enables its users to parse and utilize the logfiles that are generated by the famous MRTG (Multi Router Traffic Grapher) tool.
mrtg_parse() takes three argument:
        1st:  filename of the mrtg logfile
        2nd:  time period to genereate the output for
              valid values are:   
                                 - individual time periods like: 20040821-20050130 (ISO 8601)
                                 - static values:                day, month, year
        3rd:  the desired unit (optional)
              valid values are: 
                                 - B, KB, MB, GB, TB 
                                 - if missing mrtg_parse will chose an adequate one for you
mrtg_parse() returns three values:
        1st:  Incoming traffic
        2nd:  Outgoing traffic
        3rd:  Sum of incoming and outgoing
