This module provides methods to further process information contained in smokeping rrd files. The smokeinfo tool is a simple wrapper around the functionality contained in here.

 my $si = Smokeping::Info->new("config/file/path");

 my $array_ref = $si->fetch_nodes(pattern=>'/node/path',

 my $hash_ref = $si->stat_node(path,start,end);



Create a new Smokeping::Info instance. Instantiating Smokeping::Info entails reading the configuration file. This is a compute heavy procedure. So you may want to use a single info object to handle multiple requests.


The fetch_nodes method will find all nodes sitting in the given pattern (absolute path) including the path itself. By setting the recursive mode, all rrd files in paths below will be returned as well. In regexp mode, all rrd paths matching the given expression will be returned.


Return a hash pointer to statistics based on the data stored in the given rrd path.

 med_avg - average median
 med_min - minimal median
 med_max - maximal median
 med_now - current median
 loss_avg - average loss
 loss_max - maximum loss
 loss_now - current loss
