MRTG Latency script

Well, since you didn't specify an operating system, I'll assume
that you're following in my footsteps and doing battle with NT4
as a server. Note that the following requires that you use the
ping.exe supplied with Windoze 95/98 instead of the useless ping
supplies with NT4. See the MRTG stuff somewhere on:
http://www.lns.com
which is from where I stole the script. I also have a somewhat
different version for Linux (RH 7.1) but which I can't get to
as I managed to break SSH and can't grab it.

# MRTGPING.PL
# Plagerized by Jeff Liebermann from original by Tim Pozar.
# 09/14/00 First hack for NT4.

$ipaddr = "NULL";
$ipaddr = $ARGV[0];
$numpings = 3;

if ($ipaddr eq "NULL"){
print "Usage mrtgping.pl [ipaddress]\n";
exit;
}

# Note that "ping95.exe" is the Windoze 95/98 version
# and not the useless ping supplied with NT4.
#
# Windoze ping will return...
# Minimum = 494ms, Maximum = 574ms, Average = 520ms
$result = `ping95 -n $numpings $ipaddr | find /i "average" `;

# Break result apart at the commas.
chop($result);
($Mins,$Maxs,$Avgs) = split(/,/,$result);

# Break each value apart at the = sign.
($Mint,$min) = split(/=/,$Mins);
($Maxt,$max) = split(/=/,$Maxs);
($Avgt,$avg) = split(/=/,$Avgs);

# Remove the "ms" at the end.
$min1 = substr($min,0,-2);
$max1 = substr($max,0,-2);
$avg1 = substr($avg,0,-2);
$min1 =~ s/ //g;
$max1 =~ s/ //g;
$avg1 =~ s/ //g;

# Belch results in 4 lines.
print "$avg1\n";
print "$max1\n";
print "0\n";
print "$ipaddr\n";

If Perl is a bit of a heavy hammer, the following is what
I use on my SCO Unix OSR5 3.2v5.0.5 machines. The use of
the first ping return is intentional as I'm trying to plot
the latency of the Starband satellite flying cache, which
caches everything exept the first packet.

#!/bin/sh

# Record ping times.

# Results of:
# ping -c 1 -s 1024 bloat
#
# PING bloat (192.168.111.30): 1024 data bytes
# 1032 bytes from bloat (192.168.111.30): icmp_seq=0 ttl=128 time=10 ms
#
# --- bloat ping statistics ---
# 1 packets transmitted, 1 packets received, 0% packet loss
# round-trip min/avg/max = 10/10/10 ms

# Really disgusting way to get rid of extra leading spaces
# by feeding it to a shell variable. Ugly at best.
#
# usage: whatever machine_name_or_ip
# i.e. whatever bloat.comix.santa-cruz.ca.us
#
retch=`ping -c 1 -s 1025 $1 | grep "time"` # extract line with ping time.
set $retch # break apart into fields using IFS seperators
ping=`echo $8 | cut -c 6-` # extract ping time.
echo $ping # ping time=xxx
echo $ping # ping time=xxx
echo "0" # Filler
echo "0" # Filler
