Right now there are two options:
1) bring the info in through the command-line orbstat(1) call
2) Acquire the information through /pf/orbstat packets on the machines
that are running pforbstat(1). This will require parsing the /pf/orbstat
packets, which are textual. I'd hate to see a hack of any sort take
on too much weight, however, when the correct solution is to get someone
with a fair amount of Antelope expertise to add faithful parameter-file
parsing to com.brtt.antelope, as per Tobin's recent suggestion.
The third approach, and the true answer to Bertram's question, is that
someone with Antelope expertise would have to add equivalents to the
Antelope-API orbstat(3), orbsources(3), and orbclients(3) functions to
com.brtt.antelope. That has not been done.
I'd go with option 1 for now.
