    Hi fingers,
First off - good job for using Net::Snmp!   I used UCD SNMP for a similar script because of the included additional utilities, but in hindsight wish I'd done like you.

A couple of trivial suggestions come to mind:

  • Getopt::Long might simplify processing of command-line arguments.
  • If you're going to use $hostname instead of $_ in
    foreach(@hostname){ undef @unique; $hostname=$_;
    it could be a tiny bit cleaner as
    foreach $hostname(@hostname){ undef @unique;
  • I don't know how well the particular syntax would transfer to your code, but "(code) mind your snmPs & Qs" uses a hash to count non-port interfaces, then subtracts them from final port status report.   As you note, it reaaally improves accuracy of generated reports.
BTW, thanks for the compliment in your pod.   I "appreciate poorly written code" because I'm so well practiced at *writing* it! 8^D

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
