I plan on putting some Linux bash scripts here that I’ve written to do things for my job as a Network Engineer.
Most of them deal with managing routers and other network devices via SNMP and taking that data and making it into a easy to read webpage. I’ve written tons of scripts so hopefully they’ll help others.
My distro of choice is Debian. I’ve tried many others but I always keep coming back to good ol’ Debian. Apt-get (via aptitude) is what it’s about and although ’stable’ isn’t as up-to-date as some people like, ‘testing’ is much more so and very much as stable as many other distros. If Debian intimidates you, check out Ubuntu or, my preference, Kubuntu (difference between defaulting to Gnome or KDE). It’s based on Debian but geared more towards being user friendly and targets the desktop. Quick shout-out to Jeremiah for opening my eyes to Debian a few years back (I had been mostly a Redhat/Mandrake dude).
But I digress…
