NetScaler: Generate a simple usage statistic per Vserver

One of my co-workers recently approached me, that he needed a simple shell script which would generate a simple report about a Vserver’s current connections. After ironing out a few things with him (he had the intention of it being on a CIFS share on our file-server – which I changed to a simple HTML page) I went to work.

Out came two scripts. One is the collection instance, and the other is the processing instance. First the collection script runs, finds the current HA master node and then collects the Vserver’s current connections. After that script has dumped the information (date, time, current connections) into a file, the processing script will go and create a simple HTML page that’ll show exactly those informations.

You’ll also need to have configured the public key authentification on both HA nodes, since entering a password in combination with scripting is a bit lame.
