At the last IETF I had mentioned that I had developed an application for
compacting the SNMP data collected by the PSI 'snmppoll' program. The
'opstat' IETF group was also working on data exchange format and all that,
This might give them ideas,
Well, the application is called 'snmppoll-dc' (for snmppoll data cruncher)
and it reduces a 60 MB data file to about 10MB (a reduction of about 6
times). It can handle any type of data, and the output format is still
ascii. The program has a lot more capabilities like acting like a
filter, generating data for 'xgraph', etc.
An accompanying program, 'snmppoll-reporter' is a reporting application
for the processed data. (As an example, gives octets per 10 minutes for
each hour of the day). It can also generate output for plotting on a
3-D plotting program (like GNUplot).
Anyway, the README file is attached below. If folks do make
improvements, I will gladly incorporate into my code.
