Summary: A CGI Script to return an RSS feed of the BIG-IP's status.

Your BIG-IP is now blogging. This is a CGI Script to return an RSS feed of the BIG-IP's status.

How to use this snippet:

So, load it up on your favorite perl-enabled web server, point your aggregator at it, and fire away...

Code :

#!/usr/bin/perl

use CGI qw/:standard/;
use SOAP::Lite;

BEGIN { push (@INC, "."); }
use iControlTypeCast;

$q = new CGI;
