SORTING PCS IN SITES (NUMBER)

Please I need a script that gives me as a result the number of computers located in a site :
Example :
I have :
Scope                      Start IP Address End IP Address
[12.182.1.0] SITE 1      12.182.1.11 12.182.1.30
[12.182.8.0] SITE 2      12.182.8.130 12.182.8.254
and I have :
Name-PC   IP Address
 PC1   12.182.1.17
 PC2   12.182.8.144
 PC3   12.182.1.19

What scripting language, is the information already in a particular file format or are you hoping to capture this information as well.

Are you trying to do this in SQL?

If so you could do something like

SELECT * FROM YourTable WHERE Site = 1 ORDER BY IP
UNION ALL
SELECT * FROM YourTable WHERE Site = 2 ORDER BY IP

You have SQL as one of the zones for this question.  Is your data already in a database?  If so, which one?

the general SQL would look like this:
Select Scope, Count(Scope) As SiteCount
From SiteTable, IP_Log
Where Ip_Log.[IP Address] Between SiteTable.[Start IP Address] And SiteTable.[End IP Address]
Group By Scope

Open in new window


Note: This is generic SQL and may need to be tweaked for MySQL.

you're welcome.

Please be aware that the SQL solves the problem as stated.  If you throw different data into the mix, you might not get the desired results.  The reason for this is that the [IP Address], [Start IP Address], and [End IP Address] values are strings.  As such, the Between operator might not find the correct slot, if any, for the rows to be joined.

If you need to configure this for regular production use, you should probably store these ranges as BigInt values and use the INET_ATON() function to compare the IP addresses numerically.  While you could invoke the  INET_ATON() function on the range values, it would make for very inefficient queries.

Example:
Select Scope, Count(Scope) As SiteCount
From SiteTable, IP_Log
Where INET_ATON(Ip_Log.[IP Address]) Between SiteTable.[Start IP Address] And SiteTable.[End IP Address]
Group By Scope
