This is the blog of Ronald Bartels that wanders on and off the subject of problem management (that is how it started), but it is best described by Ray who says this is Daddy's thoughts! Like the best music is from the Eighties and a wee dram helps in solving most inconveniences.
TTG (SNMP Text Traffic Grapher)
TTG is a small command line utility that displays current throughput (bandwidth usage)
on an interface of a remote device such as router, switch, firewall, etc., over SNMP.
You can think of TTG as command
line version of STG or a high-interval/ad-hoc query/test tool
for MRTG, etc. The output is very similar to ping(1) command.
You can use it to quickly check/measure traffic before waiting 5 minute cycle when configuring MRTG, as a
means of using the data in text form (eg. copy&paste in to an email or spreadsheet) or just a
general purpose command line network administration aid.
