Title: Access your SurfBeam 2 Satellite Modem Values via Shellscript
Post by Veit on Aug 13th, 2014 at 8:21pm
Hey There,
I am very new to all that Satellite stuff. I am using a SkyDSL Installation in Germany and run in the FAP-Trap but thats not the point here.

Since the SkyDSL Support said my Installation may be bad, hardware wise, and again said that there is no "fair use policy" at all in the service, the only thing i have to consider is that its a shared medium, i thought about collecting as much information about the speed and fap/fup mechanism as possible.

I found out that you can get "plain text" values out of the modem by requesting the direct urls like the javascript of the WebGUI of the modem does.

To post the links and code, if have to create two normal posts since i am a new board member.. spam prevention ftw! :D

The URLs are these:


Code (]http://192.168.100.1/?page=modemStatusData
http://192.168.100.1/?page=triaStatusData
http://192.168.100.1/?page=basicStatusData[/code):

and those are visible in the JavaScript, too:

[code]http://192.168.100.1/?page=installStatusData - i havent tried
http://192.168.100.1/?page=speedTestData - always empty
http://192.168.100.1/?page=sngStatusData - shows an error


Then I took a look for a SpeedTest i can use in an shellscript and found this:

Code (]$ wget -O speedtest-cli https://raw.github.com/sivel/speedtest-cli/master/speedtest_cli.py
$ chmod +x speedtest-cli
$ ./speedtest-cli[/code):

renamed it to st.py and wrote this little shell script to create a CSV file.
It runs forever, waits 20 minutes before checking again.
It combines the Time with the actual RxSNR, Ping, DL and UL Speed.

It can be easily modified to handle all values you can also access in the webgui of the modem.

The script is very quick and dirty, but i wanted it to share with you :)

[code]#!/bin/bash

while [ true ] ; do
        time=$(date +"%T");
        snr=$(curl -s http://192.168.100.1/?page=modemStatusData | cut -d '#' -f 23);
        speed=$(./st.py --simple --server 1746 &2>/dev/null);
        ping=$(echo $speed | cut -d ' ' -f 2);
        dl=$(echo $speed | cut -d ' ' -f 5);
        ul=$(echo $speed | cut -d ' ' -f 8);
        dataset="$time;$snr;$ping;$dl;$ul";
        echo $dataset >> speed.csv;
        sleep 900;
done


First results show, with no change in the RxSNR the downspeed suddenly really goes down when I start to stream a Video for example. So There IS a FAP (for sure, no news for you XD )

[/code]

As expected, the downspeed went down when I created more Traffic then "normal" browsing. RxSNR was between 9 and 11.
