'k folks ... the quick and dirty .. actually, not too dirty ...
The attached script goes into /etc/periodic/monthly (and can be run from
the command line) and is the *very* barebones ... it reports operating
system and architecture ... it will return a unique id at the same time
which will be used when we add in the pciconf output ...
I have it recording two things: IP and hostname ... I figure it is highly
unlikely for two hosts to ever have both identical, so a *fairly* safe
unique key to work with ... and unless someone is running a whack of
machines behind NAT with the same hostname, it gives us a safe unique
counter for those behind NAT ...
The backend is storing the data in a database right now, so what I'm
curious most about is someone running behind NAT with a few servers, or
behind a proxy, just to see what sort of results ...
I'm going to try and get the pciconf output added into it later tonight,
and will post a follow up, but this at leave gives something to test
Right now, there is no "output" on the web site, but I do have a link to,
and daily run of, awstats, which will at least show some figures ... once
there is data in the database, I'll start working up a stats page based on
the #s there ...
Note that once you've added this script, you need to add:
to /etc/periodic.conf so that it will run monthly ... and, of course, you
can run it manually, instead of waiting until the end of the month ...
You can also run it as often as you like, it will only record one
submission *per* month, but it will update the data based on the last
submission (ie. if you upgrade, or add/remove hardware) ...
Its a start ... will work on extending it to add the pciconf output next,
and send a v2.0 script as soon as that is ready :)
