table output?

Hi

I've got 2 questions, first probably easy: I can't find Tr.js to enable the 
traceroute ajax app. I'm on version 2.3.6-3 on Debian Lenny. I guess that's the 
problem, right?

Second, although I like the graphs output by smokeping on the webpage, and they 
obviously represent a decent programming achievement, is there the possibility 
just to output a table of HTML with a row for each destination, a column for the 
latest ping ms or 'down', and a column saying how long it's been up, and maybe a 
column to give an idea of how the target is doing e.g. 0 - 100% up since last 
restart?

Regards
Adam

Re: table output?

For your first question, yes, you're on the wrong version to support traceroute in SmokePing.  That feature
was only released in 2.4.0.

Secondly, there is no current functionality for tabular output -- you would purposefully be losing 90% of
the information that SmokePing can tell you (like the distribution of ping values, loss, etc).  If all you
want is last latency (or "down") and uptime, there are other tools that will monitor this for you with less
overhead.   Now, having said that, anything is possible -- the data is certainly there for you to pull into a
table.    Patches are welcome.  ;)

Re: table output?

OK, I'll see whether Debian has >= 2.4.0 in the backports.

re the functionality of the charts, I do actually want all the information I can 
get, but also need an overview that's all visible on the screen straight away.

Maybe I can change the charts somehow? I just find the charts are not suited to 
my myopic eyesight. I would prefer to have the downtime more explicit, and I 
guess I need to get used to packet loss, distribution & other stats more to be 
able to eyeball the charts effectively.

There are 2 reasons I run smokeping so maybe you can say if either of them are 
wrong reasons to choose it. Firstly I want to know when the connections die, and 
secondly I am trying to establish why I have a particular software error so 
frequently, which I believe is caused by the software's server or hops on the 
way to its server. I think their ICMP MTU path discovery is broken or 
compromised, possibly by my ISP throttling my broadband connection.

Maybe I'm barking up the wrong tree. Is there any other mode of output for 
smokeping besides the webpage? Or perhaps other software.

Thanks
Adam

Master/sLave Problems

Hi there,

i tried to configure a Master/Slave Setup.
What i did on the Master is:

cat /etc/smokeping/slave-secrets
nagios:NBG

idefix:~# cat /etc/smokeping/config.d/Slaves
# *** Slaves ***
#
## make sure this is not world-readable!
##secrets=/etc/smokeping/slave-secrets
#
+nagios
display_name=Nagios
location=Nurnberg
color=0000ff

Thats  it.  If u uncomment the secrets part i get an error which shows
me that the variable "secrets" is unknown. Dont know why!

If i try to start Smokeping on the Master i get the following error:

Starting       latency       logger      daemon:      smokepingrequire
Smokeping::probes::nagios         failed:         Can't         locate
Smokeping/probes/nagios.pm in  <at> INC ( <at> INC contains: .....

Any1 can tell me what my errors are? I am confused

Re: Master/sLave Problems

  Can you confirm what version of Smokeping you're running?   Based on 
those errors, I would say that you're using an old version of Smokeping 
that doesn't know about master/slave configurations... master/slave was 
introduced in version 2.2, so if you're running anything earlier than 
that, you'll have to upgrade.

Re: Master/sLave Problems

Hey,

i found it. I forgott *** Slave *** on the Masterconfig.

But now, when i start the slave i get:

nagios:~# /usr/sbin/smokeping
--master-url=http://idefix.v6-gate.oberhausen-it.de/cgi-bin/smokeping.cgi
--cache-dir=/var/smokeping/ --shared-secret=/var/smokeping/secret.txt
WARNING: Opening secrets file /etc/smokeping/slave-secrets: Permission denied

ERROR: we did not get config from the master. Maybe we are not configured as a slave for any of the targets on
the master ?

task for the weekend: try out remOcular

Folks,

do you use the traceroute frontend in smokeping ? Over the last few
months I have developed remOcular, it is the same idea massively
generalized ...

  http://oss.oetiker.ch/remocular/

For the next smokeping release I am going to remove the traceroute
integration and point people at remocular instead ...

Have some fun, download the software and try it out. Does it work
for you ? Do I have to add / fix things to make it realy useful ?

cheers
tobi

slave smoketrace

Hello List,

I've successfully setup a master and 2 slaves and have smoketrace
working quite well for me from the master.

How do get slave smoketrace results via the master?

thanks,

this does not work ... but you may want to have a look at
www.remocular.org ... for this it would be simple to write plugin
which is able todo that ... given you have ssh remove access
capability to the other hosts ...
