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.
