Re: Backbone Monitoring Tools
Wouldn't you be better served just walking the netToMedia tables for your devices? Parsing configs sucks. Even caching the contents of a simple snmpwalk would save you some pain. Shovel 'em into a db and call it a day.

Well, True. But the idea is to have a full mesh of 'n' sensors each doing 'tests' to the remaining n-1 sensors. Finding asymmetric routes should be trivial as I plan to feed it my router configs from rancid, for detecting interfaces that belong to the same router. ( Of course, this can't be extended to the Internet in genral. )From all the replies I have received, I don't think anything opensource fits the bill. Going to the mines to write my own. Good bye cruel world...
