Monitor your network
« on: April 17, 2017, 01:54:10 PM »

I stumbled across this the other day and thought it may be a brilliant idea for those who want to know how their network is performing.
Connect your PRTG to your Amazon Echo/Alexa

Link to watch video - here.



Now then Eric, we just need for you to get it working with DSLstats and think how happy we'd all be  ;D
"Alexa.  Whats my current SNRm?"
"Alexa.  How many CRCs today?"

This looks like it may be possible to use IFTTT to fire off http get/post requests to Dslstats inbuilt web server to obtain the wanted information like current snrm for example and have Alexa control submission of IFTTT recipes :)

It probably is possible, but I should imagine would require a fair bit of work for someone to implement.
However as far as Im concerned DSLstats is a diagnostic tool first and foremost with the graphs of events being most useful.   You couldn't really convey that by speech.

With further reading it seems that IFTTT is a dead end and the solution would have to be natively developed through Amazon. I ran across some bignerdranch training in partnership with Amazon that instructs how to develop for Alexa - https://developer.amazon.com/alexa-skills-kit/big-nerd-ranch

I think the fundamental thing necessary to enable simple development will be utilizing the dslstats webserver to query the stats and get a response that Alexa can say.
