Capabilities Question - SNMP List Data Processing and Plotting
I am doing an eval of WUG as a tool that can solve a problem. I'm trying to poll a Cisco ASA and determine how many free IP addrs are available in an ip local pool.
This is done via CLI with the "show ip local pool [poolname]" command and looking under the column of "Free". Which is the # of free IPs in a pool.
ASA has an OID that tells how many sessions are connected to a tunnel group / connection profile, but not an ip local pool or group policy. (Because that would be too easy)
Opened up a Cisco TAC case to determine if what I am asking is sane, but they state that the ASA is a security device and SNMP OID support is limited.
I am searching for a network management tool that can poll an OID from a Cisco ASA and dump a list of IP addresses.
Then run a script that processes that list and returns 2 data values and populates a data store.
Then if WUG can run a report and graph the data, that would be great.
Basically, what I have today is 8 cron jobs and a shell script with a bunch of awk, sed and grep strung together and a CSV file that keeps growing.
And instead of using Excel to graph it, it would be nice if WUG could archive the data and make better and more customizable graphs without me having to endlessly change the VB script every time someone asks for a different timeframe or devices organized by region, etc. I want to use a report generator that can just view the same data in a different way, without having to keep reinventing the VB script wheel every time.
Does anyone out there know if WUG can do all of this?
