Gross Shipping/Discards

I'm interested in the effect of interacting queues across networks (see Bufferbloat for details). Here are my efforts to pay attention to this issue in my environment.

Gross-Shipping polls each switch and router for ifHCOutOctets/ifOutOctets on all interfaces and keeps track of that quantity in a text database. It also sums the total across all interfaces and flogs that, by device and across the entire flock. Parse-Gross-Shipping reads the resulting log files and produce AutoGraph config files, which in turn produces graphs of the result.

Gross-Discards polls each switch and router for ifInDiscards and ifOutDiscards on all interfaces, sums the result, and keeps track of that quantity in a text database.
