BBStatus is an IP accounting package and an SNMP and IP monitoring tool for Linux. It collects, summarizes, and displays the values from its database. It can be used for IP accounting (allows you to design various kinds of accounting filters), SNMP monitoring (collects data making SNMP requests), ICMP monitoring (stores and summarizes values like min, avg, max reply time, and packet loss), and client traffic filtering (using various types of filters). It also provides user based access so that every user can log in and visualize various data (depending on access rights). It requires PostgreSQL, Apache with mod_auth_pgsql, Perl(Net::SNMP), and RRDTool.

Release Notes: Big performance improvements were made by switching ICMP monitoring from netping to fping and by doing SNMP monitoring once per minute for 1/5 of all monitored hosts instead of doing it once every 5 minutes for all hosts. A new and experimental accounting tool that uses tcpdump was added. Some compatibility issues with newer Linux kernel and iptables versions were solved. Various minor bugfixes were made.
Release Notes: Various bugfixes in rrdbreq.pl, show_acct_info.cgi, and summ-snmp-oid-values.pl, and minor database changes.
Release Notes: Some database changes (made in version 2.30) were not included, and because of that, new equipment could not be added; this has been fixed. bin/getsnmpoidvals.pl has been updated. This is the first public version that supports SNMP version 1, 2c, and 3 requests. There have been minor documentation updates. When creating a new accounting filter, the tables storing monthly and yearly data are now added. A part of the database management module has been backported from the current development tree (2.61) so that the tables for the accounting filters and SNMP OIDs can be removed again.
Release Notes: ip_management.cgi and ip_does_overlap() subroutine (various.pl) were added from the current development tree (2.61). The umask is explicitly set in rrdbreq.pl/rrd_create_img(), and a typo bug was fixed in rrdbreq.pl.
Release Notes: There are a few bugfixes. A configuration file for Apache 1.3.x has been added. There are RPM spec file changes/improvements.
