I’ve started work on a c++ version of the Kontrollbase client script but am not as experienced in c++ as I’d like to be and don’t have the time to learn more c++ at the moment. The idea being that the client script written in perl has a lot of module dependencies and that complicates rolling out the client to large server farms. A compiled C++ script will be a drop-in solution.
So, if someone that is talented with c++ on Linux wants to help out the project and write a quick script involving a connection to mysql to run queries, and then connect to SNMP to gather system information, then export all of that to stdout as XML… let me know! I already have the MySQL part outputting XML so we just need the SNMP part and some error checking. Email me at themattreid at gmail dot com or commetnt on this post if interested. You’ll get credit on the project as a contributor.
