Another approach to solve your problem is using the SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol). If you are allowed to run snmp-daemons on the servers you want to check, its quite easy and you'll get uniform results regardless of the OS (in theory at least). Using tools like 'snmpwalk' you could get the information you want from a remote host like this:

prompt$ snmpwalk -c mylittlesecret -v 1 remotehost | egrep 'ifDescr|if +AdminStatus' IF-MIB::ifDescr.1 = STRING: sis0 IF-MIB::ifDescr.2 = STRING: vr0 IF-MIB::ifDescr.3 = STRING: lo0 IF-MIB::ifDescr.4 = STRING: faith0 IF-MIB::ifAdminStatus.1 = INTEGER: up(1) IF-MIB::ifAdminStatus.2 = INTEGER: up(1) IF-MIB::ifAdminStatus.3 = INTEGER: up(1) IF-MIB::ifAdminStatus.4 = INTEGER: down(2)
Just be sure you do this on a well protected intranet (I guess so because you use telnet to connect to the remote host), or use SNMP version 3 which has much better security than the standard version 1 (which I used in the example above, by using '-v 1')

Of course you could use Net::SNMP instead of 'snmpwalk' to query remote snmp-daemons.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
