Net::Radiator::Monitor - Perl interface to Radiator Monitor command language

SYNOPSIS ^

This module provides a Perl interface to Radiator Monitor command language.

  use strict;
  use warnings;

  use Net::Radiator::Monitor;
  use Carp qw(croak);

  my $monitor = Net::Radiator::Monitor->new(
                                                user    => $user,
                                                passwd  => $passwd,
                                                server  => $server,
                                                port    => 9084,
                                                timeout => 5
                                        ) or croak "Unable to create monitor: $!\n";

  print $monitor->id;

  $monitor->quit;  

METHODS ^

new

  my $monitor = Net::Radiator::Monitor->new(
                                        user    => $user,
                                        passwd  => $passwd,
                                        server  => $server,
                                        );

Constructor - creates a new Net::Radiator::Monitor object using the specified parameters. This method takes three mandatory and two optional parameters.

user

The username to use to connect to the monitor interface. This username must have the required access to connect to the monitor.

passwd

The password for the username use to connect to the monitor interface.

server

The server to connect to - this should be either a resolvable hostname or an IP address.

port

The port on which to connect to the monitor interface - this parameter is optional and if not specified will default to the Radiator default port of 9084.

timeout

The connection timeout value and recieve timeout value for the connection to the Radiator server - this parameter is optional and if not specified will default to five seconds.

quit

  $monitor->quit;

Closes the monitor connection.

id

  my $id = $monitor->id;

Returns the Radiator server ID string. the string has the following format:

  ID <local_timestamp> Radiator <version> on <servername>

Where:

<local_timestamp>

Is the current local time on the server given in seconds since epoch.

<version>

Is the Radiator server version.

<servername>

Is the configured server name.

server_stats

  my %server_stats = $monitor->server_stats;

  foreach my $stats (sort keys %server_stats) {
    print "$stats : $server_stats{$stats}\n"
  }

Returns a hash containing name,value pairs of collected server statistics. Server statistics are culminative values of access and accounting across all configured objects.

The measured statistics (and the keys of the hash) are:

  Access challenges
  Access rejects
  Access requests
  Accounting requests
  Accounting responses
  Average response time
  Bad authenticators in accounting requests
  Bad authenticators in authentication requests
  Dropped access requests
  Dropped accounting requests
  Duplicate access requests
  Duplicate accounting requests
  Malformed access requests
  Malformed accounting requests
  Total Bad authenticators in requests
  Total dropped requests
  Total duplicate requests
  Total proxied requests
  Total proxied requests with no reply
  Total requests

client_stats ($client_id)

  my %client_stats = $monitor->client_stats($client_id);

Returns a hash containing name,value pairs of collected statistics for client specified by the value of the client id. The available statistics are the same as those listed for the server_stats method.

The list_clients method can be sed to retrieve valid client IDs.

list_clients

  while (($id, $name) = each $monitor->list-clients) {
    print "Client : $name - ID : $id\n"
  }

Returns a hash containing all configured clients where the key is the numerical identifier for the realm and the value is the client name or IP address (dependent on configuration).

list_realms

Returns a hash containing all configured realms where the key is the numerical identifier for the realm and the value is the realm name.

list_handlers

Returns a hash containing all configured handlers where the key is the numerical identifier for the handler and the value is the handler name.
