Intermapper probe for Comtrend DSL modem
I wanted to keep track of the Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR) for my DSL modem. I was losing connections overnight, and wanted to prove to my ISP that this was happening.
Intermapper now monitors and plots the SNR continually, so it's easy to see dips in the signal quality, and the times they occur. This helped my ISP figure out what was happening.
This probe demonstrates a detailed InterMapper command-line probe, using the IMDC Python interpreter.
This probe connects to a Comtrend DSL modem's web interface, and retrieves its SNR values and uptime values. This has been tested with a Comtrend AR-5381U modem. Here's the Status Window:
To use the probe
- Use File->Import Probe and select the probe file
- Select the probe from Miscellaneous/Comtrend DSL Stats
To edit the probe
- Edit the probe file
com.blueberryhillsoftware.comtrend.txtto change the appearance of the Status Window, or...
- Edit and test the Python program in the
im_comtrend.pyfile then copy/paste its contents into the
<tool> ... </tool>section of the
com.blueberryhillsoftware.comtrend.txtprobe file and re-import it.
