[AP-UTILS] 0.9.5 vs 1.0 error values?
Fri, 14 Jun 2002 11:14:00 -0500
I had been using ap-mrtg to get wireless and Ethernet stats
from Linksys WAP11 in "access point client" mode.
On my network I have several of these that are "off" some
of the time. They're only turned on as needed.
When ap-mrtg 0.9.5 tried to talk to these when they were "off",
MRTG didn't seem to mind. I'm guessing that ap-mrtg returned
zero values in this case. (I didn't keep an old copy of 0.9.5
so I can't check.)
Now with ap-mrtg 1.0, when it fails to connect, MRTG generates
output consisting of two blank lines, a dash, and another blank.
MRTG complains, giving errors like:
WARNING: Problem with External get 'ap-mrtg 192.168.5.59 "xxx" e':
Expected a Number for 'in' but got ''
WARNING: Problem with Externale get 'ap-mrtg 192.168.5.59 "xxx" e':
Expected a Number for 'out' but got ''
I don't see a link to 0.9.5 on the web site. I was happy with
it; I'd either like to revert or learn how to configure 1.0 to
generate valid "zero" data when it can't connect.
