ng-upnp2mrtg - (c) 2009-2017 by Michael Strecke

released under GPL v3.0

Overview

ng-upnp2mrtg3 is a small python script to retrieve data from UPNP enabled routers and hand it over to MRTG.

  • The current version is ng-upnp2mrtg3.py running under Python3.
  • The old Python2 version ng-upnp2mrtg.py is still available but not recommended.

Supported devices

  • NetCologne Premium (a re-branded Sphairon Turbolink 7211)
  • Fritzbox 7490
  • Tp-Link Archer C7

PREREQUISITES

  • Python 3.1 or 2.5 resp.
  • standard libraries only

INSTALLATION

  • Copy the script ng-upnp2mrtg3.py to a directory of your choice.
  • Modify the MRTG configuration file accordingly.

USAGE

ng-upnp2mrtg.py is usually called via mrtg. An example mrtg configuration file is included. Compare with /etc/mrtg.cfg on your system.

CONFIGURATION

ng-upnp2mrtg3.py itself is configured using command line options:

--host, -h - IP address or host name of the UPNP device (default: 192.168.0.1)

--port, -p - UPNP port of the device (default: 49300)

--type, -t - type of router (mandatory) (see --list option below)

--nowrap filename - activates the anti-wrap option. Modems tend to reset their byte counts after a disconnect which shows up as a huge spike in the MRTG graph. To counter this, ng-upnp2mrtg3.py keeps track of the byte count and adds the last byte count before the reset as an offset to all subsequent results. This information is stored in filename

--rawlog filename - the raw byte counts can be logged in filename for debugging purposes.

--debug - outputs even more debugging information (to stdout). This option must not be used if the script is called via MRTG.

--help - short help

--list - displays a list of supported routers. The values in the first column are used in the -t option.

OTHER UPNP DEVICES

ng-upnp2mrtg3.py can be easily extended. See Wiki or http://tuxpool.blogspot.com/search/label/UPnP for further information.
