Pinger Report

IP Space Management

The Scripts

These PERL scripts help us manage our IP space, a /16 network.

The Pinger Report pings a major network, maintaining a database of addresses which have answered pings and produces several reports, one of which lists every address in the hosts table which has answered a ping, another of which summarizes IP address utilization by subnet. Run it from cron every hour or two.
