Re: Mae-West Stats and Nanog Archives

I did get the new statistics package running
(based on RRDTool, thanks to Tobi Oetiker and CAIDA!)

It's happily gathering statistics for all the U.S. MAEs,
except for West.  Unfortunately, we had to disable stats
collection from the Gigaswitches at NASA-Ames, due
to a bug which was causing the switch forwarding tables
to get corrupted.  I don't expect that to be resolved
any time soon.

Anyway, has the current working stats.
