I cheat here. I wanted to keep usage records (we surcharge for excessive
use) so I have a perl script that connects to each server in turn and
collects who's logged in. There are 48 ports on each server so it adds an
offset--ie port 1 on server 2 is logged as port 49. It also keeps a simple
counter of the number of in-use modems. At the end of the script I then use
the standard nocollib calls to put those numbers into a dialmon-output file
in nocol/data (the same way any of the other perl-based monitor programs do
it). There's a dialmon-confg file which sets the thresholds. Kills two birds
with one stone.
