Problem this snippet solves:

This script polls the BIG-IP via SNMP and displays the current bandwidth utilization for one or all interfaces.

How to use this snippet:

  1. Install script on remote system with appropriate permissions.
  2. Make sure Perl and the Net::SNMP perl module are installed.

Code :

#!/usr/bin/perl -w

use Net::SNMP qw(:snmp);
