Cable Modem Monitoring w/ Perl

I was wondering what the signal really does at the cable modem, so I’m scraping it with perl and WWW::Curl::Easy

Modem Information:
Cox Communications
Motorola Surfboard SB5101

All I’m doing is grabbing the signal status page from the modem and pulling out the signal quality data using perl.

If you have this page, you’re probably good –

Just rename the download, adjust the line endings, if needed, change the logging file, and set up a cron job to run however often you’re interested. The output is tab separated text file, perfect for importing into Excel.
